hi all,

Just to add to the original question, we raised this with MS PSS and they
advised it was one of the new security features with IE7 and there was no
way around it, its fine with IE6. We moved to this new way for trusted sites
as the old one was very troublesome but then this occurred, so we are living
with it.
