ActiveX Still Issues

I have been setting the custom level to enable all script and ActiveX controls underneath the Trusted Sites icon but still I can't access any websites which need to download scripts or ActiveX controls, which includes downloading programs or viewing videos. The only way I've found to get around this is to go to the Sites button and manually add the websites I need to run scripts on to obey my custom level. But that is extremely annoying and it wasn't like that before I contracted the Edow and Mediacck viruses, which I cleaned out a few days ago. Is there anything I can do to get my internet to be normal and accept all websites which run scripts again?

If you're using IE, go to tools>>Options>>security settings and reset your custom levels. Wasn't sure if you had done that after reading your post.

Oh I have reset my Custom Levels and now I'm adding all the websites I need under the "Sites" button under "Trusted Sites" which is a serious pain. I want it to be easy like it was before I contracted the viruses, even though I cleaned them out. Is there anything I can do to get it so that all websites are accepted without being added to my Sites tab? By the way, I use Avant Browser, Internet Settings still the same for both browsers, though.

I bet the guys that check in on Monday morning who usually handle this forum will have an answer for you. I'm more of a malware gal, but I try to check this forum on the weekend. I will keep checking though.

One question: Do you have spyblaster installed? It blocks you from downloading harmful Active X.

No, I'll check that out. Thanks for your help, though, I hope the Monday guys can help me.
