HTA Displaying a ADO Security Warning Message

Ive been writing a HTA recently to act as a support GUI for my employer.
I will post all its code in another blog once its completed.

I had an annoying pop up message which was slowing down my testing.

ADO Security Warning
This website uses a data provider that may be unsafe. If you trust the website, Click OK, Otherwise click Cancel

This occured because i was running the HTA from a network drive,the message did not display if i ran the HTA locally on my PC.

The following Internet Explorer restriction is causing the pop up message
Miscellaneous: Access data sources across domains
This security popup can be prevented by setting the following registry key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1

Change 1406 to value 0 - To Prevent the message

Note : A Great article for details on IE Explorer Security Zone settings in the registry
is the MS Article
