a temporary fix is:
Compatibility Patch Available (security update 917425)
The Internet Explorer ActiveX update (update 912945), is contained in this cumulative security update for Windows XP Service Pack 2, for Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1, for Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, for Windows Server 2003 x64 Edition family, and for Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 for Itanium-based Systems. With this update, customers can interact with Microsoft ActiveX controls that are loaded in certain Web pages only after they manually activate their user interfaces by clicking these interfaces or by using the TAB key and ENTER keys. To help customers who need more time to prepare for the update, Microsoft released a Compatibility Patch. After it is deployed, the Compatibility Patch will temporarily return Internet Explorer to the way that it used to handle ActiveX controls. This patch will function until the June cumulative Internet Explorer update is released. Then, the changes to the way Internet Explorer handles ActiveX controls will be permanent.

That's an M$ problem, there are sometimes problems with patches that should first be patched. The only thing you can do is wait until the above patch is patched.

Tryed that already nothing still have red xs for where the camera should be running
The change in the ActiveX controls has to do with the lawsuit MS recently lost on IE related patents. They've been warning vendors about this change for a few months, so it sounds like your vendor just doesn't have its act together and is blaming MS.

Does it work with an alternate browser such as Firefox?
