Browsing Web Pages On My Local HD

When building a Website I test the pages in IE7 on my local HD before uploading them to the server. When I do this I get that yellow Active X security bar across the top of the page each time, which I have to clear before continuing. Looking at the same pages on the server (on-line) gives no such problems.

How can I stop the yellow bar appearing when I browse locally without compromising the general security of IE7?

If you open internet options and click on the security tab you'll see a button called 'custom level', click that. You can scroll down until you reach the active X area and make whatever changes you wish to. I always do this whenever I re-install vista as some of the prompts are just not needed..
