Your security settings do not allow Web sites to use ActiveX controls installed on your computer. This page may not display correctly. Click here for options&

I continue to get this error in the information bar whenever I try to download an ActiceX such as Adobe Flash. I have done all the suggested things in these sites such as allowing all activeX's to download in the security tab. I have added it to the trusted sites and change those activeX settings to enabled to no avail. I have also tried to set "allow active context to run.." under the advanced tab and that does not work. I am at a loss here. My next step seems to be a rebuild of the computer.

One other point to mention is that this all started because certain icons and pics on webpages were coming up with a red X. A refresh or a show picture would not work.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I really don't want to do a rebuild. Thank you in advance.

Chris

PS - Some of the buttons in this site aren't loading for me either :(

What antivirus do you have installed?  If you have the software to reinstall it you might remove it and see if that changes your options.

I have done the second thing you posted. Does not work as I keep getting the error. I have not tried uninstalling the antivirus yet but could do that tonight and see what happens.

Uninstalling the antivirus did not work. Nor has cleaning all the caches. Another thing I notice is a big "box" with a red X in the middle of the yahoo hoomepage. I did a google on that and someone else had the same problem but no fix was posted. I am not sure it's related to my problem or not. Doing a scan with McAfee and Windows Defender and yielded no results either.

Try using www.malwarebytes.org to scan for malware.. Windows Defender does a poor job imo.

I have run 3 different malware removers and still have the problem. I think I will just move all my stuff I want to save to my laptop and rebuild. I have tried every fix for similiar problems that I could Google and nothing worked.
