ActiveX controlls blocked machine-wide


G

Guest

Windows XP Home SP2
AVG antivirus, Windows firewall.

When browsing pages with ActiveX controlls the IE information bar reads:
"Your security settings do not allow Web sites to use ActiveX controls
installed on your computer. This page may not display correctly. Click here
for options."

Clicking on the bar, the ONLY option available is Help. The option to
install or allow ActiveX controlls is not there.

I have tried everything I could find here and on the net to fix this problem
and nothing works. Reinstalling XP is NOT an option. The PC is 100% free of
malware and completely up to date (WindowsUpdate works just fine as you may
notice).

Creating a new user account does not fix the problem, the blockage is
machine-wide.

Help is needed ASAP!

Thank you for your reply.

G More,

Open Internet Explorer | TOOLS menu | INTERNET OPTIONS | SECURITY tab

Highlight INTERNET & click the DEFAULT LEVEL button because I would say that
CUSTOM LEVEL is selected

Click APPLY then click OK

Close IE Windows & return to the website with the ACTIVEX file

Also, firewalls can also block activex files too. I would never suggest you
download an UNSIGNED activex or download one from a non-trustworthy website
