It sounds to me that its the information bar that you are having the problem with, if so then the below should help you turn it off and in turn stop your problem.

To stop the information bar from blocking file and software downloads
Click to open Internet Explorer.

Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

Click the Security tab, and then click Custom level.

Do one or both of the following:

To turn off the Information bar for ActiveX controls, scroll to the ActiveX controls and plug-ins section of the list, and then, under Automatic prompting for ActiveX controls, click Enable.

To turn off the Information bar for file downloads, scroll to the Downloads section of the list, and then, under Automatic prompting for file downloads, click Enable.

Click OK, click Yes to confirm that you want to make the change, and then click OK again

If you have managed to sort the problem out it is always helpful for others who may have the same problem, if you can reply with how you managed to fix it :)
