Every time we open Internet Explorer 11 we get the following message:

ixpopup
We have gone to Internet Options >> Security tab >> Custom level button >> Scroll down to 'ActiveX controls and plug-ins' section  >> Enable 'Automatic prompting for ActiveX controls:

iex
Ye the message appears.

Please advice.

Note:
We have Windows 10 and this doesn't happen when in Microsoft Edge.

Your setting shown at Automatic Prompting shown above is to force a prompt ("Enable - On") if you don't want that prompt for new ActiveX scripts you need "Disable - OFF" which switches the prompt OFF.

Makes sense.  We need the ActiveX controls enable.  By disabling the prompt, will it be still enable?

Yes, but IE won't check with you that it's OK anymore so if you hit a page with a malicious control set you could theoretically be in trouble so surf safely!
