Internet Explorer Setting Issue

I applied a GPO to all my users this morning that had some new IE settings. Now on all my users PCs when they open up IE they get a bar across the top that says "Protected mode is currently turned off for the Local intranet zone.". Can someone tell me which setting in IE will keep this from popping up? I know there is the "Enable Protected Mode" button to uncheck but that does not seem to take care of my problem...

My clients have IE 7 & IE 8. The server the settings were imported from has IE 8.

Have you tried setting the UAC to be on? From Tools, Internet Options, Security Tab, Check Enable Protected Mode.

The problem is, the "Enable Protected Mode" is unchecked & the little box that pops up at the top of the screen is just telling the users that protected mode is disabled. If they click on the bar they can choose do not show this message again which works....the only problem is I have thousands of users. Does anyone know of a setting in IE I can set that the little bar across the top does not show up? If I could automate them clicking do not show again that would be great! Thanks

Attached is the bar that pops up across the top of the screen. If the users click it they can choose "Do not show again". Is there a setting in group policy that I can push out so the meesgae does not come up or may I can automate them clicking "do not show again"? I just need something to keep the box from popping up.
