IE 11 "A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer" how to eliminate of this message?

I am working on someones W7 laptop and in IE 11 she was continually getting the message "A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer" It listed IE 11 as the Name and Microsoft as the publlisher. I read somewhere that disabling the shockwave addin would help, so far it has not happened again. Is that the solution?

Thanks for the repsonses and information. I have not seen the message again since I disabled the Shockwave flash addin. Malwarebytes did not find any problems. I will return it to the customer and see if they report anymore problems
@techhelptrainer - Thanks for your update and I was happy to help.
