    Hi,
    Most of you've seen this security warning window..
    http://www.geocities.com/omran_506/2.jpg

    My question is how can I create this window, put my own agreement, and be able to make installing my programs off the internet easier.

    Is this possible and affordable ??

    If yes, How does it work ??

    Thanks in advance !!!

    It's not whether you could, it's whether you should. Security issues and intrusion of privacy are major factors with things like this and I, among many other people out there, are downright sick of seeing other people trying to install programs on my machine.

    If you're smart, you'd set up a site for your program and let people download and install it of their own free will. You won't get as many installs but you'll get many more hapyp customers.

    This is why I won't answer this question myself, and I'm sure you'll find others doing the same.

    The window is a result of a signed (usually) ActiveX control attempting to install itself. The only way to reproduce it is to create your own ActiveX control, which is not the best of ideas.

    TheGAME1264, Thank you so much, and trust me I won't be doing this if it's not gonna help and make stuff easier.
    filburt1,Thank you so much for replying

    I made my own ActiveX (.ocx) as filburt1 metion, and added it to my web page , now when I open the page it says that the page has unsafe information, maybe because my ActiveX control is not signed and marked as safe, Is this right ? If so How can I sign it and mark as safe ?

    Thank you in advance

    Take TheGAME1264's advice, people can turn off ActiveX, I would have told you the same but he beat me to it
