IE7 How do I remove yellow security bar in IE7?

After having to change security settings in IE7 (in a Vista enviroment),  I cant seem to get rid of the "New" defualt security page and anoying yellow bar at the top of my web pages. I have looked for soultions but cant find any that work.

Please help remove the security Bar at the top of IE that reads: Your current sucurity settings put your computer at risk. Click here to change your sucurity settings....
Also, I cant change my home page in IE7. After making nessary security setting changes I came back to IE7 to find a security warning page as my defualt page.

To turn off the Information bar for ActiveX controls, {IE7/ tools/internet OPtions/security/custom level}
scroll to the  ActiveX controls and plug-ins section of the list, and under automatic prompting for ActiveX controls, click Enable.

To turn off the Information bar for file downloads, scroll to the Downloads section of the list, and under Automatic prompting for file downloads, click Enable.

 Click OK, click Yes to confirm that you want to make the change, then click OK again.

I made the changes you suggested (closed and opend IE7) and IE7 still states: Security Settings at Risk. And the yellow bar is still displayed along with the security page. The yellow bar has the red shield with an X through it and syays Click her to change your security settings.

These settings do not work. Sorry. I think it has to do with group policy as I have searched the internet on this matter

Im puzzled that this question is marked as "resolved", and, what's more, has a "Solution Grade:  A".

Rather, after trying the solution, the yellow security bar in IE7 is still there (now stating that the computer is at risk). Therefore the solution does only change the *text* of the security bar but does not remove it.

Therefore, this question has to be marked as unresolved.
