Microsoft Internet Explorer Update is telling me that I can don't have Active X on this page enabled

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by Tom Todhunter, May 16, 2004.

  1. I continue to reset this in the security setting of Microsoft Internet Explore and it will not reset for me even though the Tools Intenet Options Security Settings show that it has in fact be reset

    I am frustrated with this, I have unloaded and reloaded IExplore.exe and tried multiple profiles on my machine and nothing seems to work.

    I am having this exact same problem. My computer was infected with the MS Blaster worm awhile back. I got rid of it, but now my computer won't let me get any of the updates or access any secure connections. It always either says that my security settings are too high or active x isn't enabled. I've tried deleting and reinstalling internet explorer, but this has not worked. I talked to a MS support person and they told me that I might have missing data and to download Internet Explorer 6, but it won't download the browser information! I'm going crazy trying to get this fixed!

    If internet explorer will not install from the setup downloaded from the
    internet explorer site, it is because there is a registry key that must
    be reset to indicate that internet explorer is *not* currently

    Navigate to the two following keys, find the IsInstalled key, and change
    the value to zero, 0.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed

    You should now be able to re-install both internet explorer and outlook
    express over the previous installations. *I* am not certain that this
    will take care of your problem, and cannot take responsibility for any
    consequences of changing these keys and reinstalling internet explorer
    and outlook express.

    Before I did this, from a command prompt typed: sfc[space]scannow (have
    your Windows install CD handy if you do not have a directory /i386/
    somewhere on your computer). SFC will replace any damaged or curruped
    system files, which alone might resolve the issue of missing files.

    I believe that if these are reinstalled, you will have to reinstall
    certain Windows updates from the update site. They will be
    automatically identified for you.
