Box around Active content - IE Explorer?

I keep seeing a box around things like 'active' components: example www.bhatibeads.com (the
intro) when moused over.  Anyone know how to get rid of this?  Only happens
in IE Explorer.  Client not too happy that it all of a sudden 'appeared.'  Thanks.

Do you mean the Macromedia Flash player Plugin????
It will give that message until you install the Macromedia flash player plugin for the IE

This is going to be a mainstay, unfortunately. It's because of a patent issue Microsoft is having with Eolas.

The workaround is for the web sites using activex controls to implement some different scripting methods. It will be fixed soon across the internet I'm sure as this will be a headache for IE web users. Adobe and a few of the other big companies have already fixed this on their sites.

jpdavey has the right answer.  A recent update for windows was the cause.
