click to run activex control on this web page

  goffin 16:29 03 Mar 2006

I run a web site for my fencing club using Frontpage 2003. Everything has been fine until about 24 hours ago, when ever I open up the site in IE6, i get the above message twice. I've looked at security settings but can't see anything wrong. I have tried the site on another PC with no problems.

the web address is: click here

any ideas?

I have just been to that site using Internet Explorer and I didn't see that particular prompt.

I wonder whether it could be related to an IE setting?

Why not check to see if an option is disabled which is found in Internet Options > Security > Custom level.
It is the 3rd option from the top called 'Active X controls and plug-ins'

On my PC that option is disabled as shown below:

click here

If it's enabled on your PC then that could be why you see the prompt?
If so just tick the disabled option :)

I have the same problem as goffin checked the setting that ChirlyWhirly suggested and mine is already set to disabled, its not a big problem but its just really annoying! Any one else have any ideas

Mine is set to "enable", and I had no ActiveX problems with your site.

Maybe you have a system checkpoint on system restore prior to this behaviour that you could use.

done all suggested but still getting the same messages on the web site

any other thoughts?

Same as goffin we can't be the only people with this problem, I'm sure my started after the last automatic microsoft download but restoring to a previous check point has not resolved the problem.

im having the same problem too. started happening after i was told by microsoft to resore the default settings to 'optimse Internet Explorer' because i reported a problem with the new msn messenger. it solved that problem but now i have the 'clck to run an activex control on this web page' problem and when i click ok it just causes an error and internet explorer has to close.
anyone else got any ideas??

I just tried and it opened pk,with no prompts,i did notice you have moving animation on there,so may be you need to install flashplayer/shockwave to run the site and this is the active-x it goes on about.

According to Opera the active-X control is required to play a wav file "yourfile.wav" click here. If this is a music file I would recommend that you just remove it as music that plays when you open a webpage can easily become irritating.

If it is something else then you'll have to decide how important it is to you. I haven't played it because I dont install plug-ins I haven't requested.
