I get them too...and as of yet I haven't found any info on the issue. I haven't seen it on this website but I get them on others. Some one suggested turning off all add ons and turning back on one at a time to pin point the culprit. For me that didn't work...let me know if you find a cure....

This may work for you;

To fix this issue, please enable these settings after adding the site to Trusted sites:

1. Allow Previously Unused Activex controls to run without prompt
2. Automatic prompting for activex controls
3. Binary and Script behaviors
4. Download Signed Activex controls
5. Initialize and script Activex controls not marked as safe for scripting (this should prevent the prompt).
6. Run Activex Controls and plug-ins
7. Script Activex Controls marked safe for scripting
6. Run Activex Controls and plug-ins
7. Script Activex Controls marked safe for scripting

OK. There is another possible cause; This may also occur if doubleclick.net is on your restricted sites list. Do you know how to check the list?
