security settings on this machine activex will not run" i have gone into
internet explorer 6.1 and set all the security settings to low and enabled
all of the settings regarding activex controls. I still get the error. what
do i do now? also, i tried downloading service pack 2 and installing it
manually, and i keep getting the error "Cannot find the specified file"

try adding windowsupdate.microsoft.com to the trusted sites zone
also uncheck the checkbox that says something like:
only use secured websites in this zone.
