Outlook Express problem

  Drpeter 15:42 05 Oct 2005

Recently, when I try to paste some Word files into Outlook Express, I get the following message:-
"Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page...."
followed by this one, which closes the program:-
"Outlook Express has encountered a problem and need to close. ....."
Can anyone, please, advise me why only some Word files cause this and/or how I can alter the ActiveX settings to avoid the problem?

My set-up is:-
ProcessorAuthenticAMD AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1700+
Memory 512MB RAM
HDD 80 Gb 7200 rpm
OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600
Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.2180
Outlook Express 6.0.2900.2180

Go into Internet Options the security and reduce the setting to medium or default.

Thank you, but I am afraid that your suggestion has no effect.
