I am running windows ME Tonight a problem developed. Norton system works was doing a "one button" system check. I cant remember the exact details, but there was a disk frammentation & a disk free space error, some faults were found and i pressed the fix button. The fix commenced but shortly thereafter my pc froze. When i restarted it i got a symantec warning stating that some symantec product settings had been changed by an unauthorised program and that to avoid problems the pc would shut down and reset to original configuration. I pressed ok then it said it was unable to do this and to un and then re install all the products. My pc then goes into a limited desktop and i can only access programs from the explorer section and then when i press to display a folder it says" Your current security settings prohibit running activex controls on this page. as a result this page may not display correctly. I cannot access internet or any other program and i cant access internet options.
After digging about i am still no further forward. It seems this activex warning usually refers to trying to get into websites, in this case i am getting it whilst trying to navigate and open folders. Via the Folders search i can find certain files and i have even tried to delete all the Norton ones, but i am still at square one. Is my only option to re format my hard drives? Any help gratefully received
