The whole Internet security system is set up on Windows so that you can allow ActiveX for those sites you regularly visit but deny it for everywhere else. That's the way I've been using IE since the first time they had these problems. You just have to go through the process of adding those sites to the appropriate security group once. After that you're a bit more secure.
