Default New irritating SP2 problem?

I just put the service pack 2 on my computer and I used to be able to see an image in internet explorer and simply drag it to the desktop.Now I get a nag window each and every time I try to drag a file from an internet explorer page, like the one below.Do you know how to remedy/banish this annoying window

Thank you!

i believe there is a setting in the internet options to disable that notification.....its all part of the "wonderful" (saying that loosely) security modifications from our dear friends at MS

I tried by going to tools>internet options>security>select a web content zone to specify its security settings>custom level>miscellaneous/drag and drop or copy and paste files>ok>yes>apply>ok
This didn't help the option to stop the nag/dialog/notification still persists

geecie30, you are just gonna have to get use to it. It's part of *trying to save us from ourselves* pretending we don't know what we are doing type thing. The alternative to it is called LINUX! Liz
