Flash player security

I have created a small ad in Firestarter 7.3 with a hotspot linking to a web site. When previewing in IE8, and clicking on the hotspot, I get a security message from Adobe Flash Player saying it has blocked the action. Even when I add the web site to my trusted site list, I still get the message. Is there any solution? I want people who view the ad to click on it and go to the web site. Thanks for your feedback.

Bah, IE and it's "Security" settings....

Have you tried uploading it to a server? I used to have issues when viewing local files and local files only.
Aren't you a little short for a Storm Trooper?

I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

You will get the message when viewing Flash on the local PC and there is some event like browser control built into the movie. You will not get the message when viewing the movie delivered from a hosting server.
CoffeeCup... Yeah, they are the best!
