HELP ActiveX & no security setting
Hi All
I am running XP pro & up to now had no problems with it,However today i went to a web page containing a live video link (applet) & got a message saying " your current security settings prohibit running activx controls on this page as a result the page may not display correctly" and they don't!!!

So i went to internet options/privacy & only got one slider bar to change coockie settings to med/low etc.

I don't have anything saying security & i use to have tha facility to change settings in various zones ie intranet,etc. I don't seem to have this anymore (or can't find it)

I did go to view objects in internet options & found the following

C:\windows\downloaded program files
shockwave flash object
update class
webhelper class

Have any of these got anything to do with it?

Am i doing something wrong If so can one of you very helful people please point me in the right direction.

(got a feeling this is something simple) Fingers crossed.

try internet options, security tab, (or is it missing totally,) click on custom level in this screen where you can change active x settings

Thanx muppetmark.
The security tab is missing,It use to be there but now gone.

Any suggestions

Do you have any other security apps that could possibly have disabled this option, ie Norton, Spybot, or something similar.

Other than that maybe a repair of IE may be the way to go, wait for some other replies in case someone has come across this before.

I have just recently run spybot.
Had a look in the recovery bit but don't know what it may be.

suppose i could recover the most recent & if that doesn't work i can get rid again!

I'll try it & let you know
