VBA IE Automation skipping security pop ups?

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I am trying to automate ie with excel vba. I am trying to do this as much as keeping Ie.visible=false.'
However security popups are visible. I am guessing there is no way to skip these without having the secuirty pop ups visible (Is this really true?).

I use sendkeys (enter) to skip these security pop ups. however sometimes, the pop up is not on focus and behind or windows so the send keys (enter) does not skip the security pop up. How can I bring the security popup to focus ?
