? what security setting causes Internet Explorer to prompt before run EXEs from an HTA ?

I have an HTA that runs an EXE to paste text into IE.
For some of my users,
the HTA stops and asks permission to run the exe.

What setting in IE can I change to have it trust and not ask for permission to run the EXE?

Make sure that IE is not running in protected Mode.
Also make sure that UAC is disabled.
Thirdly make sure that Exe application is not blocked, if it is Windows 7 or above OS.

this ended up being caused by a location that was in our INTRANET sites also being added to our TRUSTED sites.
none of the suggestions above were of any help.
