How to block IE SP2 warnings from CD Previews

Since installing XP SP2, Internet Explorer displays a warning bar at the top of the CD Preview screen. The template includes Javascript

"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that could acces your computer. Click her for options ..."

Does anyone know how to prevent this appearing at all?

To my knowledge that warning is not specific to CityDesk previews. Any time you run IE you'll get that warning if there is any kind of "active content," like javascript. But I could be wrong. It happened once before :)

Clarification:

Any time you run IE *post IE SP2 install* you'll get that warning if there is any kind of "active content," like javascript.

Go into the advanced tab for IE options, and select "Allow active content to run on my computer (or something like that)."

Note that this will slightly increase your susceptibility to scripting attacks. I disclaim any responsibility for negative consequences.
