  Springheel 14:46 31 Jan 2004

I subscibe to a newsletter from a travel company and eveytime I receive an email from them and try to open it I get the message 'Your computer is not configured to run ActiveX and the message may not display properly'. Can someone explain what ActiveX is and what do I need to do to change my computer settings so not to get this error message.

ActiveX is briefly described here click here and here click here. In Internet Explorer, to enable ActiveX, click on Tools - Internet Options - Security - Custom level. In my system the following are selected.

Download signed ActiveX controls - Prompt.

Download unsigned ActiveX controls - Disable.

Initialise and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe - Disable.

Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins - Enable

Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting - Enable
