Windows XP SP2 - No Active X!! - Help!!

Total ActiveX rejection

I cannot access any site with Active X after doing a rebuild with the latest version of Windows XP SP2.

If I go to run system scanner:- click here I get the tool bar:- "This site might require the following ActiveX control: Name. From: Publisher. Click here to install..."

So click install Active X

Then I get "Your security settings do not allow Web sites to use ActiveX controls installed on your computer. This page may not display correctly. Click here for options…"

I cannot get passed this? I have put all security settings in IE to low, enabled everything.....stopped my firewalls (hardware and software) even stopped Antivirus on the off chance!!


Even found a site that said they had solved the issue by:-

> 1. Click Start ->Run and type "regsvr32 Softpub.dll" (without double
> quotes)
> 2. Click okay to register it
> 3. Do the same re-registration process with the rest of these .dll files:
> regsvr32 softpub.dll (as mentioned above)
> regsvr32 wintrust.dll
> regsvr32 initpki.dll
> regsvr32 urlmon.dll
> 4. Restart your computer and try the update site again (or other sites
> requiring ActiveX to be enabled).

Still did not work - Anyone any ideas?

No, I have that installed, it is like the link in my question (system scan for memory). Another example is office updates click here I even folowed there troubleshot section and that did not help.

Strange how Microsoft have even blocked out their own sites!!!
