Active X control error removed

I have switched navigation tabs on my web site (http:www.eradiatorcovers.biz) to a search engine friendly XHTML type. (mygosuMenu, v1.0.8 by Cezary Tomczak, http://gosu.pl/dhtml/mygosumenu.html) Now users get a ActiveX warning when entry is made to my home page.   I am not a code expert and would like to find some solution other than a IObjectSafety OLe interface (It is beyond my ablity).  Is there a javascript I can you to handle this error message.  If so what would it be? Or what would it cost to get an IObjectSafety OLe  marked as safe.

Thanks Jon

Hi radiator318,

Does this help for IObjectSafety?
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=http://support.microsoft.com:80/support/kb/articles/Q182/5/98.asp&NoWebContent=1

If you have problems with the text there, you can always ask us (maybe better in VB section though)


However, I've looked at mygosuMenu, and if it works in Firefox, I don't see what ActiveX is there...

Regards,
Zyloch

I don't see the active x either.  The problem arose after I put the new navigation tabs on my site.  So I assumed it is this.

Thank you for the microsoft link.  This is still beyond my ability.

My brother in law who works at a County Goverment agency look at the site today and said when he tries to navigate he gets this warning.  I have not seen it myself.

I have minimal resources.  What would it take for you to solve this situation

Jon

Funny. You don't get the warning? Check your IE security settings at Tools->Internet Options->Security->Custom Level

Try to make it give you a Prompt for every ActiveX download and see if you get the problem.

I set my security setting to from medium to high on ie 6 and rebooted.  I do not get the security warning.  I have also checked it on foxfire and netscape 7.

Maybe it is an isolated situation.

Well, you won't get anything on Firefox or Netscape since they dont' support activeX, consequently, anything with activeX won't work on them, so if the menu works, it's not the menu. Possibly, it's something else on your site or your brother-in-law's computer? To be sure, tell him to download Hijackthis (http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html). Run it, and post the log here http://www.hijackthis.de/index.php?langselect=english.

I normally would give more detailed instructions with sfc /scannow etc. but I've found a lot of problems, especially with spyware, can be solved faster with hijackthis, so...
