Outlook 2003:  HTML Signature - ActiveX Control Error

I created an html signature in Word 2003 and in Frontpage 2003.  Here's what I've done to make it work:
1.  Changed format to html in Outlook
2.  Checked - Use MS Word to Edit
The signature works if you're sending, replying, and forwarding.
 
The problem is:  if you open a PDF (or any file) and send from Adobe Reader, you have to manually insert the signature and once its inserted, the logo is blank - the text appears.

On other workstations, the logo appears, but there's an empty box on top of the picture.
 
At first I was getting and "Active X Error" - I was able to fix that part - the only thing left now is the disappearing jpeg.

Solution:

1.  Change the  format to html in Outlook
2.  Checked - Use MS Word to Edit
3.  Cahnge the security zone to Internet
4.  Create a new signature - DO NOT USE THE ADVANCED EDIT MODE
Inserting graphics in the advanced edit mode ads codes in to the page that triggers the "Activex" controls.
