Below are instructions on how to disable IE9′s security scanning feature. I personally would rather let my anti-virus software do it’s work and not have my browser stall when trying to install simple programs that I have downloaded.
*** UPDATE ***
Unfortunately this only worked with IE9 beta and no longer works. If someone has figured out how to disable the security scan, please post below. Thank you
Click Tools and then Internet Options.
Click on the “Security” tab, then “Custom”, scroll down and click “enable” under “Display Mixed Content.”
