In Internet Explore --> Tools --> Internet Options --> Security --> Custom Level

Download signed ActiveX controls    - Prompt
Download unsigned ActiveX controls - Disable

I've already checked all of those options, from the computer that can access the site to the computer than can't access the site.  I just can't figure out why one can and the other can't.  The only difference I could see was updating Macromedia Flash, etc.  I did that but I still could get Internet Explorer to let me install ActiveX when prompted.
The security settings are the same of both computers but one can get the page and the other can't.

I swear that every setting is the same.  The only difference is that one computer is T1 and the other is wireless.
Every single setting is the same.

Dushan911,

You're never going to guess how I fixed it even though I can't figure out why it needed to be done.  Just by chance I decided to uninstall Macromedia Flash9X.  When I went to the website not only did it let me on, it prompted and then downloaded Macromedia Flash 9X.  Now the site works great!  Does that make any sense to you?  Write back if you have any ideas and then I'll give you your points.  If it doesn't make any sense to you either, I'll still give you the points, I just want your input if you have any!!! (future knowledge)

Thanks for being the only one to respond.
