ActiveX Control Error


E

Eric

When I click on the "Send to email recipient" from any program. word is the
one that gets used most. It opens what looks like an Outlook mail message.
Yet, when I try to insert my signature, I get the following message:
One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either:
1) Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this
page, or
2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls.

I'm running XP SP3 with MS Office 2003.

I can rule out #2 as I have no controls blocked on this machine.

Also above the signature there appears to be a picture that cannot be
displayed (a placeholder maybe?) I can delete it, but it is such a pain to
have to do it every time.

Also as it appears to be an Outlook message and my Outlook is set to insert
the signature automatically, why is my signature not put in automatically.

Any help would be great.

I can see why the name of this group might lead to some confusion.

This hierarchy (microsoft.private.security.spyware.x) is intended for the
support of Microsoft Windows Defender, Microsoft's antispyware app.

In this case, Signatures is intended to mean antispyware signatures, or
definitions.


Your message needs to be seen in a group related to office, or, better,
outlook.

Start here:

http://www.microsoft.com/office/community/en-us/default.mspx

and hit outlook in the left column--then choose amongst the more precise
groups--not sure what would be best.

Thanks for using these peer support groups!

Eric, did you ever find a solution to this issue? I'm having the exact same
issue.

I have been having the same problem, when i fixed the ActiveX error from this
link. I then had the "picture" appearing as well. I have just deleted my
original signature and made a new one and it works. I was also having
problems with the colour I picked for the signature not showing up but fixed
that first, that was when i got the x error message, so hopefully this might
help.
