I have started getting this message when trying to open parts of various sites. There is a "frame" round the part I am trying to open and I have to click once to "activate" it. This has just suddenly started about 2 days ago, anyone tell me how to get rid of it?

Yes mine is the same and only change recently, odd.

Tried repair, message "file IEXPLORE.EXE insert SP 2 disc" which I do but it says unable to find this file?

Bit of a wally! I had tried the alternative solution, now trying scf /scannow (slow isn't it?)

Been racking, even wrecking!, my brain, all I can think of is saying yes, just this time, to an active X control. Don't know where it was now!

If all else fails,you can try this click here
Once downloaded...run in safe mode and goto advanced tools,tick all and optimise.Restart

Its the registry optimiser trial version you require.It will only repair 10 errors at any one time,but you can rescan and fix errors as many times as you like.

The added bonus is the extra tools you get and are exactly the same as in the full paid version.

Overall the only difference to the trial version...is the full version will automatically fix all errors not just the 10

Thanks, but i'm not going to mess about with the registry, it's not a big problem just annoying.

You dont have to use the Registry part just the advanced tools.This will look after your ie.
