How to stop the notice that ActiveX controls could not be displayed
Full message that appears:
One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either:
1. Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page, or
2. You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls
As a result, the page may not display correctly.
I have found a couple of discussions re this but they concern "Project Guide" (have no idea what that is, don't have it) and MS Services. Other discussions elsewhere involved Outlook, which I never use.
This appears randomly over web pages I try to access.
XP Home IE8 -- this didn't happen in IE6 (I bypassed IE7 as that was a disaster on my machine).
It is extremely annoying as I have get rid of it before I can do anything else at all.
Have tried tweaking in Internet Options, but nothing seems to work.
Worst of all, this NAGGING is simply to tell me something that was already done! I really DON'T CARE!
How can I get this nagging to go AWAY???
Please answer all of the following diagnostic questions by number in your very next reply (no need to quote this post):
1. Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode?
=> Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet Explorer (No add-ons).
2. Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings & reboot?
3. What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)? What third-party firewall (if any)?
4. Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this machine?
5. Did a Norton or a McAfee free-trial come preinstalled on the computer when you bought it? (Doesn't matter if you never used or Activated it.)
6. Is it the same computer as in this earlier thread of yours? => http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/InternetExplorer/thread/49d26b58-97a2-4a96-9b47-c8feb371da83
