some home computers cannot get into WSEServer 2016 due to repetitive activex message.

I am my employer's technical administrator.
We just switched to a Windows Server Essentials  O/S and I am having troubles with remote access from home.

My wife's dell laptop windows 10 works fine:  
1.      open IE 11
2.      remote.mydomain.com  
3.      enter my credentials
4.      select cpu name "MainServer"  
5.      enter credentials again  
Voila, I am at the master desktop and I can administer things from home.
I try the same thing from my Lenovo t460p windows 10 computer and I get stuck at step 4.
The webpage want to run the follow add-on: "Remote desktop services Active X from Microsoft corporation.

I click Allow and the same message pops up again and again and again and again.

I went to ie11 manage addons and discover that Microsoft RDP Control is already enabled.
I then googled the error and eventually discovered that I need to add Romote.MyDomain.Com to internet trusted sites.

But, I did not need that step on my wife's computer.

Why do some computers requires the extra manual step and others do not?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

actually, the answer to this question is very simple: "some computers work differently than others."

That is the correct answer and any attempt to understand such a subtle difference more deeply is destined to be frustrated.
