This will get rid of that screen.  

 Go to Run and type regedit
    Now navigate to this path – HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\SafeMode\Components
    You would find a key named DeskHtmlVersion
    Right click the key and select Modify
    Under the label Base, select the radio button Decimal
    Change Value data to 0
    Click OK
