I'm fairly certain this cannot be done without a browser helper, which would have to be installed voluntarily by the user. How the user views your page is their choice really.

Yes, but they're not trivial to write. I haven't worked with them for some time so not sure if there are any changes for IE 7 and 8.

Actually you may be able to get away with a standard ActiveX control but there's still the problem of getting people to allow it.
