    Welcome to TSG. What your error suggests is that your Active X settings are too high. To resolve this issue please do the following:

    1. Open up Internet Explorer > Click Tools > Internet Options.
    2. Click on the Security Tab.
    3. For each of the following, change the setting to Default Level, by clicking Default Level down the bottom:


    Note: If you are not sure how these settings got changed, you most likely are infcted with Spyware etc. If you think this please download Hijack This from here and post a log in the Security Forum <--.

    I hope the above solves your problem.
