I have Windows 7 on my computer. Frequently when I try to click open a web site a screen comes up stating "A website wants to open the web site using this program on your computer”. Then I have two choices: "Allow" or "Don't Allow". This is a nuisance screen. What could I do to avoid getting this screen? Thank you very much. Murrar

What application/program is the website wanting to open? As cryptodan states it would be helpful to have a screenshot of this.

Upgrade to either IE8 or IE9 and the problem should disappear.
