It happens on all versions of IE.  It is a built-in security feature to prevent web sites from downloading programs to your computer without your permission.  Firefox will only allow you to download but it does bring up the dialog also.

I doubt that you can disable it.

So will keep working in this but for now I think we are going to just add signatures to the files that need to be ran....
