Blue boxes aound flash in IE

1
I've been told that there are blue boxes around flash files in Internet Explorer on some of the sites I've built.

Is here anyway of getting rid of this?

EG. www.8wire.co.uk or www.explodeyourmind.com

You cannot fix those blue/grey boxes.

IE made that as a security measue, to prevent people from accidentally clicking on flash banners that give you spyware and stuff like that.

Basically, you would have to click on each individual box to 'activate' it and 'use this control'

Theres nothing you can do really
Just the was Internet Explorer is...

nice sites by the way

Adobe's solution for this problem: 2 ways to dynamically add flash movies to a web site via scripting.

Yeap,

that's right...With that JavaScript file you have that subject off.

Search at the Exchange Community for it...there's a package that you include in Flash and after it you may at that Publishing time say you want to fix that...Flash will prompt you for the SWF file...and the JavaScript file will be created on the same folder of the SWF and HTML files.

Cheers,
