New IE security "features"

I have a small flash intro to a site that contains rollover effects on buttons (They are supposed to go from black and white to color on rollover.)  
In the most recent update to IE 6 (Version after update is 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519), before the rollover will work, the user is instructed to, "Press SPACEBAR or ENTER to activate and use this control".
Clicking on the flash will also get the effect to work, but it is an unwanted extra click ont he interface.

Does anyone have any idea how to bypass/disable this.

Thanks,
-Mark

Adobe's solution doesn't cover MX2004, only Flash 8

You can download my plugin here:
http://www.webnapkin.com/fd/FdActiveXpluginMX2004.exe

I also wrote my own plugin for Flash 8.  Difference between Adobe's and mine is that mine also covers templates for FScommand and Anchors.
You can download it here:

I don't have the documentation up yet so be sure to read the instructions at the end of the installation.

Basically you just run the exe to intall.

To use:
Go to publish settings=>HTML tab
Select the FD template you want to use(normally FD Flash Only) and publish

Then in the top file menu go to Commands=>Include ActiveX Javascript File

Or instead just use the Adobe Active Content fix.  (http://www.adobe.com/devnet/activecontent/articles/devletter.html) Which is nothing more than moving the inline object and embed tags into an external javascript file so that they are written dynamically.  It doesn't matter what version of Flash you use to developer, or what version of Flash Player the end user has.
