Internet Explorer 9 Local HTML Files - Do you want to save this file?

A customer of mine just deployed Internet Explorer 9 to their workstations through WSUS.  After rolling out Internet Explorer 9 whenever html files were executed from the local computer users were prompted with:

"Do you want to save this file?"

For this particular customer, the logon script executed a html file locally to show live process of the various tasks the logon script needed to carry out.  Internet Explorer 9 caused major disruption as a result.

To allow HTML files to launch from the local computer without popping up as a download, ensure "Allow active content to run in files on My Computer" to be selected in Internet Options.
