I have a computer running XP Home sp2. Shortly after updating to sp2, every site I go to shows the info bar stating that active content has been blocked. I have compared the IE security settings to another similiar pc that does not get this block notice on many of the same sites (like google.com). I have thoroughly scanned for viruses and spyware, but it seems clean. Any ideas?

Are you refering to Active X? If so you can just disable it.

Yeah, SP2 basically disables most ActiveX controls unless you go back and tweak the IE settings. Although, since you do see the Info Toolbar, just rght click on the little bar that comes up and you should have the option to allow whatever it is that it blocked.
