IE9 and PDF files

I just downloaded IE9 onto my Win7 Enterprise x64 laptop. Now, when I'm at my banking site and want to view a check, a small popup appears at the bottom of the page asking if I want to open, download or close the PDF file.

This also pops up for various other files, like ActiveX, etc.

Any idea on how to get rid of this (to me) annoyance?

Thanks in advance for all responses
