    Even if you do manage to make a script which can change a user's registry, which I would consider doubtful, employing such a script would beyond any doubt be malicious code, and potentially illegal.

    Think inside the web page and don't try to change anything on your visitor's computer.

    Work with the way that browsers work rather than trying to change the way they work (and thus confusing your visitors and driving them away).

    You should still be careful, fooling with the registry and allowing ActiveX can introduce unintended consequences and possibly open up exploits if someone accesses the Web from a computer so modified. If it is an intranet, it's the admin's call and most admins won't look favorably on such doings.

    mmm...yeah right..i find the way of removing it though enabling it in security options..but my concern is the user that wouldnt know how..we all know that user are always a user and they doesnt care about configuring something in settings, means that i have no choice and give them a proper instructions of removing it if they want.

    i agree that enabling from registry is pretty dangerous,,and i will stop on doing it.

    Only Internet Explorer has ActiveX so any ActiveX will be ignored by other browsers. Internet Explorer 7 will have ActiveX turned off by default to make the system more secure for web use. It was only ever really intended for use on intranets in the first place.

    Having the client slightly annoyed at having the address bar in the popup window is better than having the client really annoyed at having been taken to court by hundreds of users who lost huge sums of money through a spoofed web site where they couldn't tell that the site was fake because the address bar wasn't there.
