I'm using Windows XP and Internet Explorer 6.0 and recently the following message has been appearing when using a form submit.  I check the box that says I don't want the message to appear again but it keeps appearing.  I've tried all different security and privacy settings (low, medium, high).  How do I make this go away!  Thanks.

When you send information to the Internet, it might be possible for others to see that information. Do you want to continue?

If you make changes to the security level for a zone without using the Security tab of the Internet Options dialog box, the change is not reflected on the Security tab of the Internet Options dialog box.

For example, if you set Internet zone to the medium (default) security level and you send nonencrypted form data over the Internet (for example, by using a Web page search engine), the following alert message is displayed:
When you send information to the Internet, it might be
possible for others to see that information. Do you want
to continue?

If you do not remove the check mark from the In the future, do not show this message check box and click Yes, the Miscellaneous option to Submit nonencrypted form data is set to Enable; however, the Security tab of the Internet Options dialog box still displays the Internet zone set to the medium security level instead of custom.
WORKAROUND
To work around this problem, click the appropriate Web content zone on the Security tab of the Internet Options, and then click Custom Level.

Perhaps there's a registry entry to modify, but just don't have the time today to check further.  Hopefully this information will be of some help, though.

I'm running XP Pro with SP2, and just haven't experienced your problem, so at a bit of a loss.

One last thought, on the forms issue; in the event the problem persists and this applies to your environment:

This appeared to be a problem when logged in as an end user without administrator access.  When logged in as an administrator, I was able to uncheck the box and resolve the problem.  Astaec's comments and links were helpful in resolving the problem.  Thanks.
