IE Information Bar : How to disable it, or at least move it to bot

    Hi,
    This is one of IE features that I have come to dislike. For several years I
    have turned off signed signed Activex controls, which means, prior to XP, I
    was notified through an annoying message box that I have to install some
    activex control ; and with XP, the message now appears inside Information Bar
    at the top of page - which annoyingly causes the page to scroll down by a
    line or two.
    So my question is :
    1> Can you move the 'information bar' to the bottom, instead of at top,
    preferably to the status bar?
    2> If option 1 is not possible, can you disable it altogether?
    I really hope both options are possible.

    TIA for any heads up.
