What exactly is your browser?

Is it the first time you encounter this error?

Try this one.

You should delete an extra zone from

HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurraentVersionInternet SettingsZones

Here’s how to do it?

Click Start the Run and type regedit click ok regedit should pop out in regedit go to this

HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionInternet SettingsZones

Now you see a pseudo-graphic number, it is just before zone no. 0 (zero).

Its kind’a like adobe flash player update bug, I am not sure though.

This pseudo-graphic number look like a minimize upper case L. Now remember it is just before zone number zero. Try to have a back up of what you delete in case something goes wrong.

The ActiveX control is normally used on Microsoft Internet Explorer so I guess the error showed up after you started the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser. Since you are using Microsoft Windows XP, try updating your Microsoft Internet Explorer to version 8 and see if it is fixed. Visit Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.0 for XP. Back in 2012 when I downloaded the version 8 update for my Internet Explorer, the Microsoft page where I downloaded the file said it supports Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3.

But now when you download Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 on the Microsoft website, it will now say that Windows XP is not supported and you can download Internet Explorer 8 for Windows Vista and later. So, that’s odd. Once downloaded, run the installer to update your Microsoft Internet Explorer to version 8. This is, by the way, the very last version of Microsoft Internet Explorer to support Microsoft Windows XP.

Before you run the installer, make sure you are using Windows XP Service Pack 3. If you have a lower Service Pack, you should update to Service Pack 3. To update to Service Pack 3, visit Windows XP SP3 Network Installation Package. Also, try updating the Adobe Flash Player on your computer. Visit Adobe Flash Player Latest to get the latest version. Once downloaded, install it on your computer.

This will update the current Adobe Flash Player installed on your machine.
