Security Warning in IE for embedded images

I get the following message when opening files on our corporate Intranet with embedded images (like a logo).  We are using IE 6.0
"The current web page is trying to open a site on your intranet.  Do you want to allow this? "  Then it shows the last part of the path for both the current site and the Intranet site ...processfiles/image001.png.
I'll get the same message repeated for each embedded image in the file. When I say yes to all the messages, the page with images loads.  If no, the image is not loaded with the rest of the page.  We typically have created these documents in Word and save as Single File Web Page.

This only started happening a few weeks ago, but I haven't been able to determine what has changed in our environment.  I've compared my IE security settings with someone that doesn't get the popups, and the settings are identical.

Anyone have any ideas on what causes this?

It is possible that Windows updates may have altered any of IE settings that you have. Is everyone getting this issue or just on your machine? Have you tried to do this with firefox web browser? If you log into another computer using your profile do you still run into the same issue?

Keep us updated
what happens if you add the site to the trusted sites list. does it still prompt?

I wasn't able to get back to this on Friday, but thanks for the good suggestions.  I was able to access the content without the error when using my Citirx account.  I plan to try these suggestions on Monday.

When using a diffent PC, I do not get the security warning.  When someone else uses my PC, they do not get the security warning.  I do not have admin access to try to add the site to my trusted sites list.
try decreasing the security levels on the machines. that will let more things open up with less prompts or you can go custom and disable prompts altogether
