I get the following errors when trying to use windows update:


Install the ActiveX control required to view the website
The website will not display correctly on your computer without this control. To install it:
1. Right-click the Internet Explorer Information Bar. It's located just below the address bar.
2. In the right-click menu, click Install ActiveX Control.
3. In the Security Warning dialog box, click Install.


I am not getting prompted. I have rasied my security settings and still nothing.

Please advise, because of this, I am unable to view a lot of web pages
Where there was photos of something, I see a small box in the toip left corner of where the image would be and its a RED SQUARE, GREEN CIRCLE & BLUE TRIANGLE

Is there something I can do?

Thanks!

My issue has beeen resolved. Thank you. When fixing another issue, the AxtiveX was missing from my registry. Here is the fix:

indows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{0000031A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}]
@="ClassMoniker"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{0000031A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\InprocServer32]
@="ole32.dll"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{0000031A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\ProgID]
@="clsid"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\CLSID]
@="{0000031A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}"
