    Hi All,

    I have a Win NT 4.0 machine with Service Pack 5 or 6 "Not Sure Which One". I have IE 6.0 with all of the patches and I am upto date with all security patches. Whenever I try to go to a site with flash or if I try to create a flash file it pops up a message -

    This page provides potentially unsafe information to the ActiveX Control. You current security settings prohibit running controls in this matter. As a result this page may not display correctly.

    I have reset all of the IE Settings to the defaults. I have no clue what could be causing this. Any ideas would help.

    Thanks In Advance,

    I don't know why the error would occur with flash ads, but I've seen it with java applets when Virtual Machine was disabled in Internet Options > Security > Custom.

    You might want to remove your current flash file and update to the latest version.

    You might want to check your version of that comcat.dll and get the latest, then run the regsvr32 command on it.
