If you want to turn it off, you have to turn it off for each type of message.

To stop the information bar from blocking file and software downloads:

Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then clicking Internet Explorer.

Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

Click the Security tab, and then click Custom level.

Do one or both of the following:

To turn off the Information bar for ActiveX controls, scroll to the ActiveX controls and plug-ins section of the list, and then, under Automatic prompting for ActiveX controls, click Enable.

To turn off the Information bar for file downloads, scroll to the Downloads section of the list, and then, under Automatic prompting for file downloads, click Enable.

Click OK, click Yes to confirm that you want to make the change, and then click OK again.

I'm a bit late but what you posted is in the internet explorer help.

I tried that again but it did not seem to help.

What I did in the end was un installed ie7 and then reinstalled it and it is o.k. now.
