ActiveX for Local HTML Page in IE9

Since IE9 was installed, when I open my home page which is just an internal style sheet and HTML.
Most of the code is something like
<td class="class4"><a href="http://www.rockymountaincancercenters.com/">RM Cancer Center</a></td>

Open in new window

I have a few that are something like
<td style="width: 25%"><a href="http://cid-84502c5265699151.profile.live.com/Services/">Services</a></td>
<td class="class7"><a href="https://www.onlinecreditcenter6.com/consumergen2/login.do?subActionId=1000&amp;clientId=jcpenney&amp;accountType=generic">JCPenny</a></td>

Open in new window

That is about it.  I don't get the error in other browsers, just IE.  
I can post more code if needed, but I am hoping this is something that is common and someone has ran across it.

You didn't say what error you're getting.

Forgot to attach the image - IE Restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls.

I can "trust" websites it seems but I cannot add this page to IE options to be trusted.

I don't have IE9 but in XP with IE8, you can go into Internet Options and click on "Allow active content to run in files from My Computer".

Would that be Tools - Internet Options - Advanced Tab.  Under Security, there is Allow active content to run on My Computer*?  (*Takes effect after you restart Internet Explorer)?

And if so, assuming everything is just basic HTML, what does IE consider Active Content?

(I did reboot IE, message is still received)

Dave BaldwinFixer of ProblemsCommented:
ActiveX, VBscript and javascript are 'active content'.  Flash probably too.  Just about anything but HTML and CSS.

That's what I thought.  Just curious - do you see any code that would cause this issue?

Here's the odd thing, before I posted the code above, I add the CSS like this:
body {
	font-size: 1em;
}

Open in new window

and I changed it to what you see above, to something like
body {font-size: 1em;}

Open in new window

I notice now, that when I open a new tab, I am not getting that error.  I did not reboot my machine, or IE.  I only condensed the CSS some.

Interesting fix.  Thanks for the points.

I am not certain why removing the lines / spaces stopped this error, but hopefully it might help others.
