    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?

  2. 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.
