How to get rid of the ActiveX pop up?

So far, I like what I have seen come out of Internet Explorer 7. Â The only
irritation is the pop-up with the question: do you want to allow software
such as ActiveX controls and plug-ins to run? Â If that isn't bad enough,
another one pops up and says: do you want to allow software such as ActiveX
controls and plug-ins to run? Â My question: is there a setting that will
allow me to just say no to all ActiveX controls and plug-ins? Â And for a
follow-up question: what are the pro and cons of running and not running
ActiveX controls?

Your security settings likely somehow got set to prompt. Click Tools |
Internet Options | Security and set the preferences to the default for each
of your security zones.
