If you do below setting in you IE can solve the issue:

Enable "Scriptlets" in the Trusted Sites zone for IE 7

  1. Load Internet Explorer 7
  2. Navigate to the Menu and select "Tools -> Internet Options"
  3. Select the "Security" tab
  4. On the "Security" tab select the button Icon "Trusted sites" and then the button "Custom Level"
  5. In the "Custom Level" popup navigate to the option Scriptlets and make sure this has been enabled.
  6. Press OK

Please try, I hope it will resolve your problem.
