How can I repair ActiveX errors?

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am encountering a bar suggesting Internet Explorer that I should have no add-ons running and cannot download the ActiveX necessary for downloading the Adobe software and the Explorer immediately stops working. I need a solution. Please help.

This is the error message:

One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either:

1) Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page, or

2) You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls.

As a result, the page may not display correctly.

How can I repair ActiveX errors?


This might happen because, by default Internet Explorer disables the running of unsigned ActiveX controls. Of course, you can temporarily disable this security feature only if you are very sure about the legitimacy of the website. Later on, you can re-enable the security.

To disable the security feature:

1. Open Internet Explorer.

2. Click Tools and then Internet Options.

3. Click on the Security tab and then on the Custom Level button.

4. Under ActiveX option, enable the: Run ActiveX and plug-ins, Download Signed ActiveX Control, and Script ActiveX controls marked as safe for scripting options.

5. And “Prompt” the: Download unsigned ActiveX Control. Launch and script ActiveX controls not mark as safe options.

6. Press Apply and OK and restart explorer.

This should be sufficient to allow you to run ActiveX control on any website you wish.
