Settings prohibit running ActiveX

  Tittlemouse 20:53 21 May 2003

When using this PCA site I get a message telling me that my 'current security settings prohibit running Active X controls on this page'. It comes every time I change pages. Could someone please tell me how to change this. My security settings in Internet Options (control panel) are medium (default). Windows ME, I.E..Thank you..

Click, Tools - Internet Options - Security - Default Level.

Hope this helps.

Have you also allowed the use of First and Third party cookies?

See Internet Options>Privacy>Advanced.

IE6>Tools>Internet Options>Privacy takes you to the page that allows you to pick and choose cookies.

Hope that helps

I have found that the cookies are enabled but in the "Download signed ActiveX controls" it is marked as 'prompt'.
Also both "download unsigned ActiveX controls" and "initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe" are both disabled. Will this make a diference?...Thanks once again...

Incidentally I can't find a "privacy" tab. My IE version is 5.50. I did find the cookies under "Security..custom level"

I have found that if I enable "Download unsigned ActiveX controls" this problem goes away. Why is the default for it to be disabled and will it be detrimental to my computer security??...
