JSI Tip 9531. How can I control the 'Did you notice the Information Bar' dialog?


Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Windows XP displays the Information Bar on Internet Explorer when a potentially dangerous actions on a Web page have been blocked.

The first time this happens, you receive a Did you notice the Information Bar dialog.

You can control whether the dialog box will or will not appear by setting the FirstTime Value Name, a REG_DWORD data type, at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\InformationBar to:

0 - DO NOT show the Did you notice the Information Bar dialog.

1 - Show the Did you notice the Information Bar dialog.
In addition to setting the data value using Regedit.exe, you can:

1. Open a CMD.EXE Window.

2. To set the data value to 0, type the following command and press Enter:

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\InformationBar" /V FirstTime /T REG_DWORD /F /D 0

3. To set the data value to 1, type the following command and press Enter:

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\InformationBar" /V FirstTime /T REG_DWORD /F /D 1
