Windows Explorer active content is being blocked.
Posted on 2007-04-09
On a HP laptop that is running windows XP Home I recently updated it to SP 2 and all other updates from MS. I noticed this morning that when performing this specific action content is being blocked.
what I'm doing is Opening windows Explorer, expanding My Pictures and under my pictures clicking on a folder that contains JPEG files. that brings up a warning (Information Bar) explaining that Internet Explorer has blocked a pop up or file download that might not be safe.
Ok I' familiar with that when browsing the web, but local? I tried changing all of the internet securty zones, setting them to low, still get the window. Reset them all back to defualt levels, and then explored the advanced internet options, I just can;t seem to find a setting that will allow the content to appear.
I forgot to mention that the content is the items that normally appear on the left hand side of the window in a blue colum. Ie "Picture Tasks' such as view as a slide show, copy to a CD, etc.
I have all the same security setting levels on other systems and this has not happened.
