Default Active X control prompt keeps coming up?

I keep getting the "click to run active X control on this page" prompt when entering certain web pages. My browser is IE. I have gone in under "tools" then "Internet options" to the "Security tab" and under Active X controls and plug-in's I have disabled prompting and also enabled "run active X control.

What am I missing here? How can I get IE to quit prompting me to run active X?


Thanks

Bob


what I'm running is in my sig

Personally, I'd prefer it to prompt. Some sites might use it to bad use, and should only be allowed if you trust the site.
ActiveX can be used in my understanding to download programs/spyware you have not asked for.

If the vendor is something which may be relevant to the site you are looking at (e.g. 'Microsoft Corporation' or 'Adobe') then I would go ahead and try installing it. I have never had any trouble whatsoever in doing that.
