irritating ActiveX popup in IE

I am working on a script that will be distributed on CD-Rom (it's my company's digital catalog). Since it includes a flash file, I get a popup bar in Internet Explorer that says, "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access your computer. Click here for options."

I have used the "mark of the web" (<!-- saved from url=(0012)http://localhost/ -->) to remove the popup, but now my hyperlinks that referernce the CD-Rom will not work. They can be clicked, but the links are never activated. Only the links to the web are activated. Is there a way to remove the popup while ensuring that all my links are working? I don't want my users to have to deal with this irritating notice every time they start up the CD.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Flash files do not cause this warning to appear. It is probably due to an ActiveX control somewhere in your script. The popup bar is due to security settings in IE. If you use ActiveX, and the user has a security setting telling the popup bar to show (which is a default setting), then there's no way around it. Try not using ActiveX, there are many ways to do things that ActiveX does (without using ActiveX).

And by the way... your "mark of the web" is a comment... it comments out that code, so the browser doesn't read it. This is probably why the links don't work.
