Activex control security problem

I've developed an activex control which opens up a word document and saves it to the disk.  I inserted that in a html page and tried to run that.  I get a message box saying
that the security settings doesn't allow the apge to run activex controls.  When i change the security settings to allow the activex controls, everything is going fine.  Is there a way to overcome this.  I know that we can eliminate this using signed cab files.  I used the java aigned applets in this way.  Can some one tell me how can i do this(sign the ocx files ) with ActiveX controls and how can prevent the dialog box asking the permissions.  I have full access to the client machine.  I'm using VC++ 6.0 to develope the controls.
Thanx in advance.

First, you'll need to get a software publisher certificate, then you need to create a CAB file for your control, and embedd the CAB file in the HTML page instead of the activex control directly. Since you have VC6, take a look at "Using Visual C++ -> Programmer's Guide -> Adding Program Functionality -> Details -> Internet Topics -> Internet First Steps -> Creating Signed CAB Files for MFC and ATL Controls" in the online help for more details.
