SYMPTOMS

When you upgrade Adobe Flash Player in Windows Internet Explorer 7 on a Windows Vista-based computer, you receive the following warning message:
A website wants to open web content using this program on your computer

This program will open outside of Protected mode. Internet Explorer's Protected mode helps protect your computer. If you do not trust this website, do not open this program.

Name: Adobe Flash Player
Publisher: Adobe Systems Incorporated

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the Ieuser.exe process in Internet Explorer 7 protected mode does not automatically detect changes to elevation policy. An elevation policy consists of a series of registry keys and registry values. These registry keys and registry values tell protected mode how to handle the elevation of a specific process to a higher integrity level.
