    Active X warnings

    CWYAG
      I am a new user of Dreamweaver and am starting to develop some sites in standard HTML and CSS. When I insert rollover images or Javascript (that I've seen in on line sites) the Active X warning comes on when viewing the site in IE. I then remove the rollovers/script and the warning does not appear. THe script works without the warning in the sites that I've copied it from but not when I experiment with it. is there a way to fix this so the user does not have to activate ActiveX ?. Most people will not want to do this to look at the site and several IT guys I know think Active X is very dangerous. What am I doing wrong?

      Thanks

          Hello,

          Are you testing this "live", on the web, or locally using "Preview in
          Browser".

          If the latter, you're likely seeing the result of your IE security setting
          involving running script on files that are on your hard drive.
          Here's the "fix":

          Take care,

            thank you so much. This problem has been dogging me since my first experiments with Rollovers and script.
