Prototype - http://prototype.conio.net/
or Dojo - http://dojotoolkit.org/
Both of these libraries serve as a cross-browser foundation for creating Ajax requests and allow for extending the capabilities for effects, element watching and events.
Besides, once IE7 hits the street, it will use the XmlHttpRequest object natively, instead of having to instantiate an ActiveX control. If you start using Prototype or Dojo now, you won't have to revisit your code in a few weeks/months.
Hope this helps,

I've got "Automatic prompting for ActiveX controls" set to "Disable" and "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" set to "Enable". If I change either of these, I get the alert you've described, so I'm assuming these are the two that affect running the ActiveX Ajax objects.
I hope this helps,
