Object resize issue

I have this activeX component that I render in an HTML page.  My company exclusivly uses IE, 6 and 7.  The activeX resizes properly if the height and width are set using javascript, or by setting the height/width to 100% on about 25% of the machines tested on.  The other 75% do not size the control properly.  If forced using the javascript included, I can double check the value after it is set and it reports the correct value however the object did not resize.

I had 2 PCs side by side double checking the security settings, they where both the same, the IE versions (7.0.5730.13) where identical as well, however one would properly resize and the other would not.

Also I have tried this on IE 6 browsers and it works on some machines, but others it simply will not resize properly.... I am lost.
 Anyone know what may causing this odd behavior?
HTML Script

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

<script type="text/javascript">

	var wheight = 0;

	var temp_height = 0;

	var delay = 100;
 

	function ResizeObject()

	{

	document.getElementById('iView').style.height=parseInt(temp_height)

	if(parseInt(document.getElementById('iView').style.height)!=parseInt(temp_height))

	{

	document.getElementById('obHeight').innerHTML='Failed To Set!';

	}

	else

	{

	document.getElementById('obHeight').innerHTML='Value set!';

	}

	}
 

	function init()

	{

	if(self.innerHeight)temp_height = self.innerHeight; //all except Explorer

	else if(document.documentElement && document.documentElement.clientHeight)temp_height = document.documentElement.clientHeight; // Explorer 6 Strict Mode

	else if(document.body)temp_height = document.body.clientHeight;// other Explorers

	else temp_height = 430;

	if(temp_height!=wheight)ResizeObject();

	wheight = temp_height;

	setTimeout('init()',delay);

	document.getElementById('meHeight').innerHTML=temp_height;

	}

	

	window.onload = init;

</script>

---------------------------------------------------------------------

BODY

<label id=meHeight></label><br>

<label id=meWidth></label><br>

<label id=obHeight></label><br>

<label id=obWidth></label><br>

<object id="iView"  classid="someobject" standby="Loading Image...">

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
