Everything has been altered here that matches or I can find. I still have the same problems as before. The things I could not find are:

.NET Framework-reliant components

  • Run Components not signed with Authenticode = Enable
  • Run Components signed with Authenticode = Enable
    ...
WinFX
  • Loose XAML = Enable
  • Web Browser Applications = Enable
  • XPS Documents = Enable
WinFX Runtime Components Setup = Enable


If these are just located under the security tab then I guess I do not have those options. I did not have all of the ones you listed here or in the pictures that Keith posted. I am using XP Pro, so I am hoping those are from XP home. I do have more options than you listed under "Double-check these settings: (Control Panel > Internet Options > Advanced tab)". I just left them as they were.

Still not having any success. Please advise of the next step.
