Active X control?

Okay, you geeks. So when I upgraded to dsl I let it change my default homepage to theirs (Verizon) vice my own page (www.mastertowing.com. Recently changed it back (nice to make sure it actually comes up every time and is functional), but when you launch the page there is a dialog box that pops up that says, "Click to run an ActiveX control on this website?". Only option is to click the "OK" button. There appears to be nothing different on the site (I would know I'm the webmaster and have sole access).

So, what's up here?

But I've made no recent changes and I didn't get that pop-up before. The only embedded wav is the one for the Cool Page logo and that's been there since I created this version of the site; never got this pop-up previously.

Your browser is set to prompt for activeX. A windows update might have changed the setting. Assuming you're using IE, at the top click "tools", then "internet options", then "security". You can modify the options to not prompt.

Thanks, wreck. There are 7 categories and I just disabled all of them. Tried finagling them individually to see whcih one was the culprit, but gave up after about 6 variations. I'll find the offending one when I get time to waste.
