windows has blocked this software because it can't verify the publisher

Hi,

I am facing this issue when trying to go through an E-Learning material. The application tries to detect Flash Player and run it, but when doing so I am facing this issue. I have Windows Vista Enterprise Edition installed on my PC. Please help as soon as possible.
The Error Details are :

Windows has blocked this software because it can't verify the publisher
Name: blockpage.cgi?ws-session=4120080092
Publisher: Unknown Publisher

Moved from:  Internet Explorer / Internet Explorer 8 / Other/Unknown

Sounds like IE is configured to not let you install unverified software. http://www.windowsreference.com/internet-explorer/windows-has-blocked-this-software-because-it-cant-verify-the-publisher/ has more information on the problem, however the short steps to try are:

1. Open internet explorer, click Tools – Internet Options .

2. Click the Security tab – Custom Level button.

Under ActiveX ensure the following are set to enabled

Run ActiveX and plug-ins – Enabled

Download Signed ActiveX Control – Enabled

Script ActiveX controls marked as safe for scripting – Enabled

Set the following to “Prompt

Download unsigned ActiveX Control – Prompt

Initialize and script ActiveX controls not mark as safe – Prompt

3. Click OK and Apply and OK. Restart the browser.
