How can I figure out what is triggering "An add-on for this website failed to run" message in the Internet Explorer Information bar?

How can I figure out what is triggering "An add-on for this website failed to run" message in the Internet Explorer Information bar?

How can I tell what the website is trying to do? Is it trying to download a file, install an ActiveX control, activate an existing ActiveX control, etc. The "Information" bar doesn't seem to provide a whole lot of information.

"The site might not be doing anything at all. I have built a site that uses no ActiveX controls that displays this issue.

If you are using IE8 (and maybe IE7) and the site uses jquery 1.3.2 (and maybe other versions) then you might see this behavior.
