I'm running Windows 2003 Server.

I've changed my IE security settings so that the following message is no longer displayed. "Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result, the page may not display correctly". However, the ActiveX controls still are not visable in the IE browser.

Any ideas on how to solve this for Windows 2003 Server? Will the solution posted by Tech Group work for Windows 2003 Server?

I have tried EVERYTHING on this thread.... I get the stupid yellow bar saying Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content yadda yadda. Sometimes I can click it and tell it to allow content. Other times I do that and it still doesn't allow me to see the site right. For a while I didn't care but now it won't let me see my AOL mail (I don't use AOL on my computer but I do get mail there so I'm checking it on the web).

I don't know what to do!!! My computer won't even reformat! I put the disk in and it used to just know what to do... now it won't open the disk because it doesn't know what to open it with. I have been having this problem ever since I got an AIM worm/trojan thing... but that is suposebly fixed... and symantec thing found and got rid of the backdoor. BUT now I can't check my frieking e-mail!

HELP ME!!!

More Info from Dell's Tech site:

What Is the Internet Explorer Information Bar and How Do I Use it?

Overview

Internet Explorer displays an Information Bar, just below the address bar, where you can see information about downloads, blocked pop-up windows, and other activities that have been blocked.

Web Site Activities Blocked

Why the Information Bar Notifies You

How to use the Information Bar

Messages Displayed in the Information Bar

How to turn off the Information Bar

Click the links above for detailed instructions.

Additional Information


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Web Site Activities Blocked

To provide extra security while you are browsing Web sites, the following are blocked and a message is placed in the Information Bar:

When a Web site tries to install an ActiveX control on your computer.

When a Web site tries to open a pop-up window.

When a Web site tries to download a file to your computer.

When a Web site tries to run active content on your computer.

When a Web site tries to run an ActiveX control on your computer in an unsafe manner.

Return to Overview


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why the Information Bar Notifies You

The Information Bar notifies you so that you are aware when Internet Explorer blocks items such as:

ActiveX controls or active content on a Web page.
If ActiveX controls or active content is blocked, the rest of a Web page will open. This will allow you to verify the Web page works without the control or active content. For most Web pages you will not notice any difference and your computer is less vulnerable when you don't install unneeded controls.

A Web site downloading a file to your computer.
If a Web site tries to download a file to your computer you have the option to allow it to do so using the Information Bar.

Return to Overview


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to use the Information Bar

The Information Bar is easy to use, click the message in the bar when it appears. You will have the option to allow the content on your computer or to view more information about the content being blocked.

This should point you in the right direction.

If not other then corruption to your OS due to that virus.

Everyone keeps telling me to adjust the security settings... I do that over and over again and again and check to see that its set to allow and hasn't changed itself.

I'm running XP on an HP laptop.

If there is corruption how do I fix it when my computer can't read the reformat disk?!

Thanks for your help...

PostPosted: 11-17-2004 11:27 AM    Post subject: activeX not functioning in windows explorer
I have a machine with a similar problem... However, as far as I know, the IE on this machine is working fine. But, whenever I want to view any folders or files within explorer (ie. My computer, My docuiments etc.) I get the "Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page..." error, and as a result, the explorer window displays a blank page, where no files or folders are displayed. However, in the status bar, I was able to see the number of objects, total size etc. Also, when I boot in to safe mode, the windows explorer works fine, and I was able to see all of the files and folders. I have unregistered and re-registered all of the DLLs and activeX controls described in this thread, and I also ran the System File Checker on this machine, but nothing seemed to help.

I am suspecting that there is an error(s) within the registry. Maybe one or few of the ActiveX controls has its kill bit set to on. However, I am not sure which registry key to edit, and I don't want to mess with the wrong key.

This system is running on Windows 2000 Pro SP4 / IE 6.0 with all patches applied. The system was infected with a trojan horse, but it was removed soon after the infection. No other viruses or spyware has been detected.

Please let me know if you can help. Thanks a bunch.

Hondan not sure what trojan u had?
Check the registry to see these areas

Key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
Values:
RestrictRun
NoChangeStartMenu
NoClose
NoDrives
NoDriveTypeAutoRun
NoFavoritesMenu
NoFileMenu
NoFind
NoFolderOptions
NoInternetIcon
NoRecentDocsMenu
NoLogOff
NoRun
NoSetActiveDesktop
NoSetFolders
NoSetTaskbar
NoWindowsUpdate
Nodesktop
NoViewContextMenu
NoNetHooD
NoEntioeNetwork
NoWorkgroupContents
NoSaveSettings

Key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Values:
DisableRegistryTools
NoConfigPage
NoDevMgrPage
NoDispAppearancePage
NoDispScrSavPage
NoDispBackgroundPage
NoDispSettingsPage
NoFileSysPage
NoVirtMemPage


These are some affects of the trojan to the registry.
For the most part these two sections shouldnot have any "no" resttictions.

One of these might be your problem

"""activeX not functioning in windows explorer"""

You don't want ActiveX functioning in windows explorer.
Check the default Folder Action for explorer.exe The virus or worm changed it or created a new value for it.

I had all the problems with the Activex described in this thread on my XP computer.. The problem appeared when trying to install Macromedia Flash. Was finally successful in downloading latest version of Flash to HD.

Uninstalled the previous version by downloading the unloader - then installed the latest version. Eureka. ActiveX is not a problem anymore.

Can now watch video on MSNBC which I could not do before.
