Microsoft support said thuis is how I/E works and they only way around it is to add a  header in the application called “content-disposition” with a value “attachment.
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....

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.

I understand that about other versions of I/E, but 9 does not give the option to change this..

No version gives that option and no other browser does either.

I am working with Microsoft support and they said that this is a function of i/E 9 and they are working on a work around for us now to get this resolved...
