    Ok, I have a search bar that I use in my taskbar. On restart it blocks the program from loading because there is a active X script in it.acocciated with. Is there anyway to allow this specific active X application without allowing all active X content?

    As far as I recall, I had to install ActiveX for each piece of software that required it. i.e. Windows update and McAfee.
    You can manage the add-ons for Windows IE through Tools>Manage Add-ons.

    What does it show if you right-click on the warning in the taskbar?

    Should have an option to install the active X control when you do that.

    Yea, I can right-click and allow it with no problems, but I am tired of having to do that every time I boot/reboot my machine. There has to be a way to allow this program while maintaing the protection against others.
