ActiveX-control produces security error message

Don't really know where to post this question, but I hope this is the right conference. Anyway.

I've got a problem. I've been writing an ActiveX control to use on a web page, which is embedded on the page using the well-known <OBJECT> tag. The strange thing though is that when I try to pass some parameters to this control, using either the <PARAM> tag or through VBScript/JavaScript, I get the following message:
"An ActiveX control on this page might be unsafe to interact with other parts of the page. Do you want to allow this interaction?"

I've tried like everything possible in the settings of Internet Explorer to see if it had something to do with security control, but I just can't get the damn question to disappear! So is there anyone out there who knows how to fix this problem? Have I missed something in the VB-source, is the problem situated in the HTML-code, or is it just IE?

A Although it may not seem obvious at first, reading files is also a huge security problem. Would you like a random Web page mailing your personal e-mails, documents, or database items to a hacker? How would you like it if you went to a Web page and it uploaded the contents of your hard disk to the evil hacker's site?
Even if that wasn't an issue, the ActiveX technology doesn't have the fine-grained control you need for this—you either run the control or you don't. Microsoft .NET addresses this with very fine-grained security permissions.
So the dialog box won't go away. Hopefully your customers all say "No!" to this dialog, unless it is on an intranet. Never say Yes to this dialog on the Web, in e-mail, or even on an intranet, unless you know why you need that control and who wrote it.
In case you were wondering, you should never ask a customer to say "Yes" to that dialog on the Web. That's a truly bad practice. If your users wanted to avoid all such messages, they could turn off Internet Explorer security, but that would be foolish.
