Somewhere... out there...
Have you uploaded your pages and been working with them online, or have you just been working with and viewing them on your hard drive?
What I have found is that, when I attempt to view one of these pages from my hard drive, it does prompt me to allow the Active X. However, when the identical page, with the same scripts, is viewed online, ActiveX prompt is no longer an issue. The simple scripts run with no interference at all.
For the record, I have made no adjustments to any of my security settings since purchasing the computer, so I'm assuming they are the same, or very similar, to your current settings.
Anyway... hope this helps.
