MS Office Webcomponent doesn't show up in browser

Hello!
Using Win XP,Norton AntiVir & Firewall, IE, Office 2000..... everything is up to date!

I've got a little homepage of my own. On one of my pages I am displaying an excel sheet. Nobody has a problem
looking at that table on my homepage. Only I have!!!  I can look at it locally, but as soon I upload it to
my web directory and look at it with the IE it displays an red x.

So I updated my MS Office Webkomponents from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=982B0359-0A86-4FB2-A7EE-5F3A499515DD&displaylang=EN
fortunately it didn't work. So I tried to put the security level of my firewall & IE to a minimum.... now suddently
my webvisit counter (which by the way also didn't work before) worked ok. But the Excel Sheet still doesn't show up...

*I think it has something to do with my security because I can look at the page locally in Frontpage and IE.
But as soon it has been uploaded no chance!!!

Would be very very grateful If you have a tip.... it's so anoying! (Don't tell me to use some other component or
PHP database  or anything like that.. I'm too lazy ;)

Greetings, dluedi!

1. There may be programs running in the background interfering with the operation of Internet Explorer. If you have Norton programs running in the background, temporarily turn them off, including anti-virus, win doctor, recycle bin protect, and clean sweep. Does this fix the problem?

Temporarily turn off any firewall or ad-blocker.

2. Perform a repair of Internet Explorer.

dluedi,  there should be an option in the Norton Options Menu to disable firewall at startup.

The repair of IE is a bit of stretch.  But I cannot think of what else is wrong.

dluedi,

in the source code of that page I see this

id="RCAeWeb_14791_WebCalc" codebase="file:///I:/msowc.cab#version=9,0,0,2710"

Well , it may not make a change but trying doing this .Instead of giving "file " , just put the file in the same directory where the index page is there

Thanks,
Sunray

Have you tried to disable your firewall?  Disable Router firewall?  Ad-blocker? Anti-virus?

mmm... yes I thought maybe of the Microsoft Firewall.. that could maybe be enabled somehow!?!?
I'm also going to try it with an other browser... so you see if it is the IE settings or the Firewall...

Hello everybody! It took a while sorry.
It's soooooooooooo anoying, I did tried all this/checke all this:
*Logged in as Admin in XP
*Uninstalled Firewall
*Reinstalled the Webcomponents & DAO
*Started in Safe Mode
*Windows Firewall not enabled
*Reinstalled IE
*Updated XP/Office 2000
*sfc/scannow  (I didn't do that it asked for Windows XP Professionel CD although I have Windows XP Home edition ?!
*Security level in IE changed to low
*with other Browser it won't work (only Microsoft compatible)
*Checked if COM+ objects are installed... of course they are

It's so stupid..........!!!!!
>>Next step: Reinstall System, forget it.... that's the only faulty thing  that's not working properly on my comp.
Well Merry X'mas anyway to everybody!
