Hi,
when you enters the site,the flash content is highlighted with a box, and displays the following message "Press spacebar or enter to activate and use this control"
The has user has to click to activate the site and is able to browse the site normally.
How can i get rid of the activate problem?

This problem only occurs in IE, the problem does not happen with Safari

Thanks

In IE, goto Tools>Internet Options>Advanced.

Under "Security", Check the box, "Allow active contents to run in my Computer"
