I have never been able to download windows updates. The message Your current security settings prevent running Active X controls on this page. As a result this page may not display correctly. I've checked web sites and found some suggestions about enabling active X controls and lowering the security level and have tried over and over and still come up with the same message. Also, I cannot order any merchandise on the web, a sign comes up this page cannot be displayed. My niece thinks I should reinstall my Windows XP Home edition but on a Web site Annoyances.org I see the same problem and he didn't have any luck reinstalling. Can anyone please help me with this problem?
