Hi, when opening various programs the following message appears
"Your security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result, the page may not display correctly"
I have been into IE and set all to default but it still won't work.!!
Any Ideas.

Many thanks Bob, tried it, played with it, still won't work. It might be worth mentioning, I am trying to access a program (driving test theory) which I baught on cd when the message comes up, I am not trying to access the web.
Any further thoughts!

gonna take a wild tab at it...Service pack 2?

Service pack two added a local security zone for webpages/active x, that prevents local webpages with active x from loading. This is a security feature created to prevent malicious programmers from running embedded programs that would load a webpage, then perform an action to circuvent online controls/security.

I suspect your program has a web-interface built into the CD.

There is a workaround that may work, if this is the issue

Thanks qerryf, tried that, still stuck! I have only had this comp a few weeks and I vaguely recall a pop-up window asking if I wanted to run axtivex on this screen!! so I was quite optimistic when I went into the link you provided, but!!
Anyway, I'll try anything you want to throw at me.

Do this, right click My Computer, and click Properties. Take a screenshot if you can, and post it here. :tazz:

Otherwise, look for something that says:

System:
Microsoft Windows XP
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

.. does it say Service Pack 2?

I'm getting there.
It says
AB (Default) REG_SZ
1001 REG_DWORD 0x00000000(0)
1004 REG_DWORD ditto
1200 ditto ditto
1201 ditto 0x00000001(1)
1206 ditto 0x00000000
and goes on for about another 25 or so
I hope this helps.
