If your question is about how to prevent this from happening, you could add the web site to your Trusted Sites list, or you could lower your overall security level. Without context, it's hard to give further advice.

sgarvey:--In theory, that warning means the Active X control is not safe to run in IE's opinion.
But if you want to allow that Active X to run, check the settings in IE Tools|Internet Options|Security tab|Custom Level|Active X Controls section.  Are the Disable circles next to "Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked safe for scripting"  and "Download Unsigned ActiveX Controls" filled in?  If so, choose another option like Enable (not secure).  Apply|OK
You have been warned.  :)
