security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls

When I am on or any of its links, I get the message ?your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result, the page may not display correctly?. Sometimes it appears more than once on the same page. There are things missing on the page. I do not have this issue on my other computer. The security settings in the ?internet options? for both computers appear to be set the same. How do I get this computer to run ActiveX controls?

I had a similar issue right after I re-installed the operating systen where I couldn't get any website to prompt me for ActiveX

Open Notepad. paste the words between the dotted lines into it and save as Javascriptreset.cmd, then close notepad. Now double click on it and answer yes to both questions. You may have to run this as administrator.


regsvr32 jscript.dll

regsvr32 vbscript.dll


Now get the latest Java from here.
