Ok thanks in advance, everyone is always so helpful. Every freaking time i try to browse the net, im using Avant Browser, latest build, (but the same issue occurs with my IE) and i run into an activeX control, it gives me the message.... "Your current security settings prohibit running activex controls on this page. As a result, the page may not display correctly." Now i am not a PC newbie, but i cant figure this out. I even went so far as to set my internet security down to the absolute minimum, turn off all the protections, and see if it would work. It doesnt. it seems nothing i do will allow me to access ActiveX controls Can someone please help me, under "Tools, internet options, security" right now all the options dealing with activeX are set to enable. (i know this isnt safe) and the stuff STILL isnt working.
