Hello - I am really confused. I have made some very basic flash that just flips from picture to picture and whenever I put it into my web page it prompts people to ok active x. I am really trying to avoid this and I see web pages all the time that have flash clips in them that don't do this. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

You are doing nothing wrong. What you are seeing is a "feature" of Internet Explorer, and there are ways of getting around it. Adobe's recommendation for embedding Flash is foolproof, future proof, and gives alternative content to browsers without Flash.

See Adobe's tutorial for more information.

Cordially, David
