When I was running the Selenium RC scripts on IE browser I was getting a Security Warning popup box. Because of this the script was not running and the tests failed.
To resolve the issue I used the selenium command selenium.ChooseOkOnNextConfirmation(). This is in Visual Studio C#. In Java its selenium.chooseOkOnNextConfirmation()
