N.A.Q.
(Never asked questions.)

How do I turn off the Information Bar / Pop-up blocker on SP2?

Pop-up blocker is easy.  Go to TOOLS--> POP-UP BLOCKER and switch it to OFF.

Information Bar is a different beast.  Everything I've found on Microsoft's website on this topic has been wrong.  Jump through the hoops, and ActiveX content STILL gets snagged by the browser.  If you have an older web-based app, this can be a nightmare.  (In my world, it interferes heavily with benchmarking software.  Primarily Sysmark2004 and BatteryMark 2004.)  To fix the issue, cut and paste the following into a textfile.  Rename it IEFix.reg and run it.  Change all occurrences of  hkcu to hklm if you want the change to affect all users.

REGEDIT4

  [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_SECURITYBAND]
"iexplore.exe"=dword:00000000

  [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl\FEATURE_RESTRICT_ACTIVEXINSTALL]
