ActiveX Warning Keeps Popping Up
We have 2 PCs that keep getting the following popup:

Windows Security Warning
An ActiveX control on this page might be unsafe to interact with other parts of the page. Do you want to allow this transaction?


They have the options of Yes and No, but hitting either one usually just brings the popup back. There are times they're not even in IE when it pops up. I've looked in there settings of IE but nothing looks out of the ordianry. All of our PCs should have the same settings, yet it's only effecting 2. Any thoughts?

You did check under the Security tab, right?

Internet Options > Security > Internet

Yes, it's set to prompt. That's how it is on PCs that aren't getting the popup as well.

What about the other ActiveX control settings in the list? Are they the same on all computers?

Yes, they're all the same. We don't make any changes to the settings, other than adding sites to the trusted sites list.
