JavaScript and ActiveXObject

Posted on 2001-06-20
Last Modified: 2013-11-19
I am using Internet Explorer 5.5. When creating an ActiveXObject in JavaScript I get the following message appear on the screen: "An ActiveX control on this page might be unsafe to interact with other parts of the page. Do you want to allow this interaction? Yes/No"

I know that this message can be removed (without reducing the security setting on your browser). I would like to know how. I presume it requires some kind of security signing? If anyone could point me in the right direction I would be extremely greatful.

Thanks in advance,

You can use certificates to make the client see your site as Trusted, but I think there still a few ActiveX security settings in IE that have to be adjusted by the user before all messages are supressed.

Have you got any idea where I can find this information?
