Hi everyone,
When i try to visit a website ( and try to watch phone demos' etc it starts loading then an error window comes up saying that your current security settings prohibit activex controls from running on this page.This may cause the page to not display properly, and then the page stops loading.

I have put my security fairly low and have enabled the activex controls.

Any suggestions?

thanks in advance

Do you have a firewall running? That might also be blocking ActiveX, as do a few antivirus programs.

i have avg anti virus that i have running in the background. i updated it last about a week ago tops so that could be a problem.What would i do?

Andy I take it you do not have a firewall then. Do you have Java VM click here
