HOw to prevent "DO you wan to close this window" in IE.

Hi,
  I am using IE. Iam opening a pop up from index.jsp. I want to close the parent window when I open child window. When I try to close parent with self.close()..it is showing a pop up with "DO you wan to close this window". Please let me know how can I prevent it using javascript. Please find the attached code for index.jsp.

It used to work..Not sure if it still does in the later versions of IE.

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
function showLogin(){

	var strURL = "login.jsp";
	winPop = window.open(strURL,'name','height=375,width=415,left=150,top=200,toolbar=no,resizable=no,scrollbars=no');
	winPop.focus();
	window.close();

}
</script>
<body onload="window.opener='';showLogin()">

</body>
</html>

Open in new window

From what I can gather it is not possible due to security restrictions in IE. As I said in my initial post, I wasn't sure if it worked in later versions of IE. To be fair, I can understand why. If I had a load of tabs open in an IE window or Firefox window and then some page closed them all for me I would be pretty narked.

This isn't possible.
