ActiveX security settings in IE6

Posted: 10-31-2003, 07:59 AM
I can't use the Help and Support center or log into
Hotmail using IE 6. I keep getting the messge that my
security settings don't allow running ActiveX components.
I have unchecked block ActiveX from my Clean Space 8
privacy software.
My IE 6 internet settinf wre the default medium level
which
allowed sined Active X components and I have put prompt
for aunsinged ones. So why does my IE brwser still not
allow scanning and downloading of Windows XP updates?

I would add the help and support center to my trusted
sites but no URL is given for it.

Is this of assistance to you Bill:

Launch Internet Explorer.
1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
2. Click the Security tab.
3. In the Select a Web content zone to specify its security settings box,
click Internet.
4. Under Security level for this zone, if the security level is set to High,
move the slider down to Medium.
If it is not possible for security concerns to move the slider to Medium,
then follow these steps:
1. Under Security level for this zone, click Custom Level. The Security
Settings dialog box appears.
2. Under the ActiveX controls and plug-ins subsection Download signed
ActiveX controls, click either Enable or Disable.
3. The computer will still be protected from unwanted intrusions while
allowing legitimate program operations to proceed.
4. Click OK to close the Security Settings dialog box. Click Yes if prompted
to confirm the change.
5. Click Apply, and then OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.
6. Exit the Control Panel
