In Internet Explorer, when you disable ActiveX-Plugins, you get an extremely annoying window everytime a flash-file is found, saying something like "Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result, the page may not display correctly, blah bla blah ...". If you look through the Microsoft Knowledge Base, this silly pop-up cannot be disabled! I've been searching for a solution for a long time, and now I've finally found one, tested with Windows XP, guess it works with other windows version in the same way. Here it comes:
1. Get yourself a resource editor, like "Resource Hacker": http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/
2. Search for the file "shdoclc.dll", usually located in c:\windows\system32\ or c:\winnt\system32\
3. Load shdoclc.dll in Resource Hacker, go to "String Table" and go to element #503
4. In the right window you now see some of the IE alerts, simply delete the line 8033 !!!
5. Click on "Compile Script"
6. Save as shdoclc.dll in a different directory
7. Replace the old versions in ..\system32\ AND in ..\system32\dllcache\ with your new one, if necessary in safemode.
That's all. You will never ever see the stupid pop-up again.
GreetingZ to all happy IE Users
