ActiveX System.Security.SecurityException when downloading a file

In my ActiveX control, I download a ZIP file in the background, however, when I try and use it in Internet Explorer, .NET raises a security exception.

I looked in the Internet Explorer settings and there is no such setting to change this.  More to the point, they seem to be able to do it successfully at http://www.yoyogames.com/.

Is there anyway to get around the security exception?

I tested that method, but unfortuantely, it seems Internet Explorer just completely ignores the settings.  I even used the .NET 1.1 Configuration Wizard - Trust an assembly, and set it to trust assemblies with the same hash and Internet Explorer still acted as if nothing changed.

I'm using Internet Explorer 7.
