Windows Internet Explorer warning on incoming message


D

I received an email with attachment today. When I tried to open the message
the following Windows Internet Explorer warning appeared:

" One or more of your 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.
As a result, the page may not display properly"

When I clicked on the OK button, the message opened properly. However, I
now cannot delete or move the email in question to a file folder without
blocking all incoming and outgoing mail, after which I receive the same
warning as above and have to restart my laptop to get everything working
again.

Has anyone experienced this problem and if so, can you help me?

Thanks for your quick response, Gary. Changing the Security setting to
Internet Zone did help with the initial problem. However, when I tried to
download the Windows Vista update, I received the message that my system
could not take it. I have the 32-bit version but must be missing something
else. Thanks anyway.

The Vista SP1 update also includes that hotfix, so it may be objecting
to installing the hotfix separately on a machine that already has Vista SP1
installed. If not, you could install this update, but expect installing it
to take hours longer than just installing the hotfix.
