I've completely rebuild a Windows XP SP2 computer.  I have nothing else loaded except for the OS.  When I try to do a Windows Update, install Adobe, etc. I get the message, "Your security settings do not allow Web sites to use ActiveX controls installed on your computer....".  And yes, I have everything "enabled" under ActiveX controls and plug-ins.  There are no GPO policies in effect that could prevent this (I think ;) I also searched this site before submitting this question and it doesn't appear that a solution has been offered.  Any ideas?
