IE 6 Script annoyance
I have IE 6 and for some reason whenever I go to any site or page, it displays a dialogue box in the middle on the screen stating "Scripts are usually safe. Do you want to allow scripts." Then its either yes or no. However with every page, I have to endure at least 3 or 4 of these. How do I turn this off? I've looked in tools/internet options and I could not find anything. Perhaps I missed it. Please help. Its very annoying.

try going to inet options, security tab, custom level and go down untill you get to the scripting options, enable them all, and if that doesnt fix it, haha dump IE, it sucks, go for one of the third party browsers like opera or mozilla, i use something called myIE2, i dunno if anyone has heard of it but i like it
(ps as if to emphasize my point i had opened the window to post this through hotmail, and so was using IE, and it screwed up on me, had to copy and paste everything over to my other browser to actually post)

MyIE2 = IE skinned
Glacophane, it does sound like your security settings got set a bit tigher than normal.
What you have it set to (unless you're going to some real shady websites that are running bad scripts) is your settings are set to PROMPT on each script that is run
Enable them all is NOT the answer, you dont' want to enable for unsigned scripts, you can still prompt for those as it will then allow you to determine if you want to trust the company or not.
I prefer Opera browser myself because of all of the security problems with IE, but thats not what you're asking.
Your best bet is to go into the security tab as noted above, and while clicked on the "Internet" icon on the top, click on teh "Default Level" button to make sure it goes back to its normal default security settings.Helicopters don't fly; they vibrate so much and make so much noise that the earth rejects them.

I noticed that you were not getting any useful help on this problem. I also had the same problem and found the answer at:
I hope that this is real help (instead of saying "Too bad you bought (X-brand instead of Z-brand)).

First of all welcome to Techimo Pool Boy.
Before you say that the poster wasn't given any real help shouldn't you consider that in the 10 days since Vass posted his bit above the original poster hasn't come back and said " tried that but no change" or " tried that and it's working fine now".
Sometimes it takes a couple of suggestions to come up with one that fits the bill exactly. This can come from several reasons some people are better at describing their problems in great detail and others aren't.
Spen a bit of time here and observe the workings you might be surprised just how much accurate and valuable information is posted in this Forum
