windows security

Windows security has recently started blocking a portion of the web page that I always had access to. I have tried making adjustments in the Security settings but it doesn't make any difference. I get the message "This content might not be displayed properly. The file was restricted because the content doesn't match its security information. Click here for more options..." When I click Show Restricted Content, I get a pop up for file download. No matter what option I choose for it, it still doesn't work. Any ideas? Thanks.

What site is this?

The file download is not a good sign. Share the site URL so others can check it out. If it's a bad one, a moderator will remove your post and explain why.

I never had a problem before. The only thing I have done was download a program from CitiBank to supply virtual account numbers for online shopping. When I downloaded that program, it said I had to enable 'Automatic prompting for Active X controls', which I did. It was after that, that the problem began. Even if I disable it, the problem persists.

an "Unsigned" ActiveX setting problem.

That site uses quite a few ActiveX objects.

Your best bet is to re-visit Internet Explorer's Internet Options and in the Security tab > Internet > Custom level look for all the Unsigned ActiveX and "ActiveX controls not marked as safe", and re-check your settings. If they are disabled, set them to Prompt, or if you are satisfied the site is safe, to Enable.

See if that helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
