From IE's Help:

Can I turn off the Information Bar?

Yes. You can, but we don't recommend it. If you do want to turn it off, you
have to turn it off for each type of message.

To turn off Information Bar messages about blocked pop-up windows

Open Internet Explorer.
On the Tools menu, point to Pop-up Blocker, and then click Pop-up Blocker
Settings.
Clear the Show Information Bar when a pop-up is blocked check box.

To stop blocking file and software downloads with the Information Bar

This procedure will allow Web sites to automatically prompt you when
downloading files and software (bypassing the Information Bar).

Open Internet Explorer.
On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
On the Security tab, click Custom Level.
Do one or both of the following:

To turn off the Information Bar for file downloads, in the Downloads section
of the list, under Automatic prompting for file downloads, click Enable.
To turn off the Information Bar for ActiveX controls, in the ActiveX
controls and plug-ins section of the list, under Automatic prompting for
ActiveX controls, click Enable."
