Can anyone tell me what I need to do in order to stop Windows telling me that my "current security settings prohibit running ActiveX contols on this page" every time I access the main page? The only thing I've disabled is downloading unsigned ActiveX controls or those not marked as safe. I recently replaced my HD and reinstalled Win XP with all the latest updates and that's when this started.

Thanks for any help.

Why not try to enable "downloading unsigned ActiveX controls" then!?!

I just figured that downloading unsigned ActiveX controls was an undesireable and possibly dangerous thing to do. Aren't signed controls sort of a verification that they're from a legitimate source that can be trusted, and vice versa?

That's about the size of it. I'm not sure if you can turn off the warning, check out your browser settings. That would stop the problem without adding to your security risk http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
