Thanks Mike for your help, when you say advanced tab, it brings up lots of options, which one is Active X settings, I know I appear to be stupid but I am not very good on Computers

I am quite sorry, i sent you the wrong direction. It is actually under the security section. then select internet of the four icons. then select custom level. then scroll down to the setting you want. the safest options should be prompt or disable. Not sure your reason to adjust these, if you tell me that i might be able to help you further(as in trying to make the connection safe, or something is being blocked etc.)

I am having a problem with the Explorer Window. I don't use IE for browsing. I use Firefox.

Every time I open an explorer window I get a message that says "Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result the page may not display correctly."

I can't see any of my files.

I was able to log onto a different profile and the problem does not follow me there.


I went into Internet Options and set the activex controls for the Internet zone but the "my computer" zone and the "My Intra-net" zones are locked. (Greyed out) I suspect this is a result of IEAK, though I can't be sure since this is the first I've heard of it. I can't find an interface of any type for IEAK.

I can open files, browse for files using IE, but not a normal explorer window.

I am running windows 2000.

This probably should be a new post.

However It could be a virus

it could also be a rights issue. depending on the account that you are using you may not have the rights to modify these.
