Your current Security settings prohibit Running ActiveX controls on this page, as a result, the page may not dispay correctly

any ideas?


I think I know what the prob is.

In internet explorer, go Tools>>internet options>>security>>custom there you will find the necessary buttons to check to allow activex to run...I would set them to "prompt" for security reasons if you are worried about certain activex attacks through your browser.

GraLk. :D


man i did what u said and still no luck........grrrrrrrrrrr

maybe u could tell me how each 1 shouold be? if u have the time :-D

Follow these steps and tell us the current settings:

Internet Options
Security (tab)
Internet (icon)

What is that setting? High? Medium? ....? Custom?

Okay, see those other icons, under the security tab? Click each one and click 'default level' for each and every one. Doing this will not lighten your security but will reset it to normal levels.

Doesn't it offer a button to click to continue?

Here's what mine looks like, because my firewall blocks referals so Hotmail/MSN doesn't know what browser I am running.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
