Gmail ActiveX error message but ActiveX appears to be enabled and functioning

I was able to use Gmail's "standard view" since establishing my account with the service; however, after cleaning a number of things off my computer to free up space I lost the ability to use the standard view.  I get the message:

"Gmail requires ActiveX controls to be enabled"

I follow the recommended settings in IE 6.0 w/SP2 but continue to get the error.  I've used another site to test the functionality of ActiveX and the broswer tests fine.

war1,

Sorry for the delay.  Unfortunately you suggestion did not help.  Subsequently my credit card expiration date passed and EE would not let me in until I updated my profile.  

I have resolved this ActiveX/Gmail problem with a recently updated answer received from a Google search.  Link is below:
