Blocking of Active Content in IE6

I have a web site which receives about 6k hits a week, but many visits are being terminated because IE6 blocks the Active Content as a result of Javascript. Although this can be overturned on each page, many people are put-off by the dreadful warnings which MS seem to find necessary to display.
The site is: www.thenileandegypt.com - with various sub-pages such as: www.thenileandegypt.com/luxor.html
Is there any progamming technique or anything I should be doing with the Javascript which overcomes Microsoft's overwhelming desire to put people off enjoying the site?
Also, Pop-up blockers often prevent 'child' windows from being opened which show larger pictures of the thumbnails on the main pages. How do I overcome that?
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

You cannot overcome that. The only thing that you can do is stop using java. Create motion Gif images or flash images to get the animation you want.

The reason these safeguards are in place is so that people with ill-intentions cannot install malicious code onto your machine and infect the browsers of different websites. These safeguards are there for the users protection and cannot be circumvented. If they could be, you would not find that information here.

Many thanks for your response. I had the impression that what you say was for the most part correct. There still seem to be two circumstances which generate the IE warnings on my site, which does not occur on other sites that I have noticed.
1. The macromedia flash animation on www.thenileandegypt.com homepage
2. The floating 'Homepage' button script on the sub-pages - www.thenileandegypt.com/luxor.html - for example. The original code from - http://www.hypergurl...ssageontop.html - does not seem to generate the warning.
Any ideas why that may be?
Kind regards - NicholsonITS
