Every time I start Windows 98, I get the message: "AN ACTIVE CONTROLX ON THIS PAGE IS NOT SAFE. YOUR CURRENT SECURITY SETTINGS PROHIBIT RUNNING UNSAFE CONTROLS ON THIS PAGE. AS A RESULT,THIS PAGE MAY NOT DISPLAY AS INTENDED.
I reset the settings (they are in Medium)but the message is still the same. There are some others pages I can not access also, but most of them are OK. Any suggestions about how to solve this problem?

Are you running IE 4 or IE 5.  When exactly does the message pop up?  Is it while browsing a web page?  And just out of curiousity, do you have active desktop enabled?

either set you security setting for low or go to custom and under active x select either prompt or enable... also make sure you have correct zone selected that it says internet zone   not network or another selection like that.
