Are these machines internal to your company/organization? If so, you can use Group Policy for this, e.g. to change the settings for various zones to allow, say, signed Active X controls to be downloaded. If necessary you can use Group Policy to add your site to the necessary zone as well. If these are external to your organization, you will need to educate the users in question - Microsoft have made it more obvious to end users that they are loading arbitrary code onto their machines.
