    Default Playing SWF files with MS Internet Explorer

    I have associate Shockwave Flash (.SWF) files with Microsoft Internet Explorer
    (MSIE) to facilitate playing these movie files. On my old computer running
    Windows 2000 this worked perfectly. But when I try to open one in Windows XP,
    I get an MSIE Information Bar telling me that MSIE has restricted this file
    from showing active content. I can override it for each file, but I'd rather
    not have to; I'd rather it just leave me alone and play the files like it used
    to under Windows 2000. How can I set this?

    The full text of the error message is: "To help protect your security,
    Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that
    could access your coputer. Click here for options...."

    If I click for options I can allow the access but only for that one session.
    If I later re-open the same file I get the same warning all over again.

    Default Re: Playing SWF files with MS Internet Explorer

    I seem to have solved it, for now, by associating SWF files with Netscape 7.2 instead. Still would be curious about MSIE though,
