ActiveX message keeps coming up

Latitude

Specs: Windows XP SP2, 1GB RAM
I have a Dell Latitude running Windows XP SP2. Every time I try to access a certain web site, or even to install something as simple as Flash, I get an error that comes up in the top of the IE toolbar saying "To help protect your security, IE stopped this site from installing ActiveX control on your computer. Click here for options."

When I click on it, it says "click here to install ActiveX". When I do try to install this, nothing happens. I keep getting this pop up window. Even when I try to go into the IE settings, and enable the Active X settings, I get the same error. Is there certain settings that should be enabled/disabled? I have tried every different setting and cannot get it to work.

I also tried to install ActiveX Control. This installed fine, as long as I can tell, but I still get this error message.

Help please is appreciated.

None of these suggesttions worked. When I tried the suggestion from Bob (.-1), I got a different message saying "security settings do not allow web sites to use ActiveX controls installed on your PC. This page may not display correctly. Click here for options". And when i click it it just show the "INformation Bar Help", which is no help at all. SP2 is definately the problem, SP1 works fine...any other suggestions?

Thanks for your suggestions:
#1 didn't work because when I tried to install ActiveX, I got the message:

"windows has blocked this software because it can't verify the publisher.
Name: swflash.cab
Publisher: Unknown

#2 did not work because I tried it both ways (enable/disable) and it did not work.
