    Try the folowing solution:
    1.      In Internet Explorer, click Tools, then click Internet Options. (Alternatively, you can click Start, click Run, type inetcpl.cpl, and then click OK.) The Internet Properties dialog box appears.

    2.      Click the Security tab.

    3.      In the Select a Web content zone to specify its security settings box, click Trusted sites, and then click Sites.
