ActiveX Controls still do require permission from the user before finishing
their auto-install.

If the "irritating alert dialog" actually says something like "certificates
expired" or "Authenticode" or such, then update that older version of
IE300/Win32 to be able to use new ActiveX Controls again.

If the "irritating alert dialog" actually says something like "can't
register the OCX" then don't use your older ActiveX Controls in the same
browser session where you're trying to remove them... restart the browser
and then install components.

Smart Shockwave makes it easier to specify engines, get them to the user,
and install them, but we're still dealing with the demands of various
different browser brands, in different versions, and on different
platforms... there are still some constraints there, true.
