Security Pop-ups

I am running Windows XP SP2 on a Toshiba Laptop connected via a USB wireless adapter to a Netgear wireless router.

How do I stop Internet Explorer throwing up boxes asking me the following:-?

Scripts are usually safe. Do you want to allow scripts to run?
Do you want to allow software such as Active X controls and plug-ins to run?
A script is accessing some software (an Active X control) on this page, which has been marked as safe for scripting. Do you want to allow this?

I have my Security set at Default (medium), my Advanced Settings at Default; I have a pop-up from Panicware.

I think you need to tick the option 'Script Active X controls marked safe for scripting' in Internet Properties > Security > Custom Level (9th option down from the top of the page)
