How do I remove the below error in IE, (i think it is a common error, i know why it occurs, it is because of ActiveX controls not available in the system)

*****"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that could access your computer. Click here for options..."**********

How do I solve this permanently? Anything to be installed / enabled on my system? Please suggest me.

When do you get that error? Each time you start IE, when visiting a certain website, when inserting a CD, ...?
Which OS and version are you using, any service packs?
Which version of IE are you using?

I'm still missing some info: those htmls are these local files or served via http (normal web surfing).
And XP: which service pack?

In any case, getting this message each time is not normal. This could mean that you have some form of malware or unwanted plugin.
Which antivirus and antispyware do you have on that PC?

As a first test can start cleaning your PC using the free version of superantispyware and then get back here with the results.
Just install it, have it update and then scan your PC.

Euhm, I'm not sure what you are asking. You did accept the solution. Did it actually solve your problem?
Of do you have an additional problem?

You should first scan for malware and spyware. And also make sure that your Windows XP is running Service Pack 2
If I understand correctly, that's a job for someone of your support.
After that we can look further if this is not solved.
