Every time I need activeX to show some page on my IE etc. , instead of downloading it iteself my IE tells me that I need to get activeX.
I'v tried searchign for some sort of activeX pack or w/e online but I havn't found any.
In the Tools --> Option --> Security I checked all activeX concerened boxed with either "Prompt" or "Enable", so I don't understand why I can't use things with ActiveX..

Any help?

This is what i get when i try to do an online virus scan (panda in this case):

Possible causes of this error are:
-Not allowing the application's ActiveX control to be downloaded.
-Problems with the Internet connection.
-The error could be due to a download error or an installation error due to lack of hard disk space, privileges etc.,...

Firstly, does a yellow bar appear under the address bar when you try to do the scan? If it does, you should click it when it appears and a menu should appear, from which yuo can allow the activeX installation. If it doesn't help, you might want to take a look at this thread, where you can find many kind of possible solutions for your problem. The bottom line of that thread was that a program called "Registry Cleaner Winfixer" caused the problems. If this might be the case, you can try MS' article: 909889 - ActiveX controls may not load as expected in Internet Explorer due to defense in depth changes introduced in cumulative security update 896688 (MS05-052) or reinstallation the system as others had to do (in case of Registry Cleaner problem).

HTH and please post back with any results :-)

Hmm.. I've tried some of the things that the post mentioned like resetting the IE security settings etc. But it didn't work, that post goes on about reformatting the computer, and I definatly don't wanna do that.

The yellow bar doesn't appear on the top in the antivirus page I talked about, if it had appeared I would have noticed it....

Anyhow, if you have anymore suggestions as to how to solve this activeX anigma, let me know please :whistling:
