When I am in Internet Explorer and I go to check my e-mail. the following pops up behind a blue shield with a "?" inside: This website wants to run the following add-on: 'TODO: <File description>' from ' TODO <Company name> (unverified publisher)'. If you trust the website and the add-on and want to allow it to run, click x here...
What is this and how do I get it off? This does not happen when I go through Mozzila.

Hi GMAN1995 and Welcome to Bleeping Computer,

It's an IE activex add-on and you don't really have to add it.
To prevent it from popping-up all the time, go ahead and run it, then disabled it on IE/Manage Add-ons.

Since it's not recommended to add 'unverified' activex add-ons, quickly disable it or simply ignore it.

See under Help in IE...7 I'm assuming.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
