I have Gateway Laptop with Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2, Explorer Version 6.02 sp2. I was told by Gateway tech support when diagnosing a problem, that I am missing some plug-ins which has to do with Active X. I have "googled" this and done the only Microsoft Upate for plug-ins offered and that has not solved my problem. My problem is on web pages, a "x" shows up instead of the word to click on that links to a different page, therefore, I can't open. Look at http://www.slccfl.com under the golf ball to see an example.
Any suggestions, please???
