Warning Message - An Applet Would Like To Print

I support a web application at work. In this application, I have an applet that prints a report to a local printer. Some people are getting a warning message from Java: "An Applet Would Like To Print. Is This OK?". However, some people are not getting this message.
Do you know how can I turn the message off? I looked at the "Internet Options" in IE 5.5 and I couldn't find an option to turn this off. Any suggestions?

If you're even getting that message then I suspect that your applet isn't in Java, it's in J++. I'm pretty sure the Java sandbox doesn't permit unsigned applets to print.
You may have a can of worms there, since neither Sun nor Microsoft is going to give you good support on J++, expecially if this applet's using a lot of classes from the com.microsoft package to tap into Windows GDI instead of using AWT. You may either have to rewrite the applet or use Microsoft's .NET conversion tool.

I've written an JApplet that prints and I get the same message when I run it with either Navigator or Explorer under W98/2000. I don't know how to turn it off but I certainly didn't write it in J++.
It's not signed either.
