I'm running Internet Explorer, v. 6.0 and often, even when I go to, I get the following "Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result, the page may not display correctly." (The page looks OK to me). This is annoying and also happened with IE 5.0. Microsoft isn't much help, so does anyone know off-hand how to get rid of this warning? Thanks, Bob B.

just means your security settings are high. try lowering them, to the defaults. right-click on the IE icon, and go down the menu to choose "properties", then, go to the security tab and one-click the "internet" icon, then go down to the button that says "default level". click it and a message pops up asking if you're sure, say yes. then click ok to set it. try it for that one, or all 4 of the zones.

um, it sounds as if someone modified it for a reason, if this is yours, and it's shared by you and someone else, you might want to ask the person why they changed it.

However, you might want to read up a bit on these settings, as they are security settings and ActiveX can be a bit of a security hazard. You might go to and search for ActiveX settings.
