Not allowing me to use ActiveX Controls

    Whenever I try to perform manual Windows Update on one of the computers I
    service, the information bar pops down and says "Your security settings do
    not allow web sites to use ActiveX controls installed on your computer."
    I've tried changing all activex settings to enable or prompt, but same thing
    keeps happening. I am unable to set the internet security setting to

    Running Windows XP Pro SP2 with somewhat current updates (stopped working
    all of a sudden; user has only user privileges, so couldn't have done this).

    I don't mind running automatic updates, but it's against company policy, so
    I just want to standardize everything. What am I not doing/doing wrong?

    You should be seeing a thin, beige line at the top of your browser screen
    (beneath the address line and toolbar). If you click on that, you can allow
    the ActiveX to be installed.

    I am not some novice Windows user. That is the first thing I tried. The
    reason I am posting this is because that is the first thing I attempted. The
    next 49 things I tried also didn't work. Please help.
