Help! I cannot seem to use any online virus scanner. Typically I get variations of the following message:
"You cannot access this page with your current browser settings. Please make sure that you are running Internet Explorer 5.01 or higher, with security settings that allow you to:
Download signed ActiveX controls
Run ActiveX controls and plugins
Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting.
You can do this by choosing the "Medium" default level under Tools | Internet Options | Security | Internet Zone. See Internet Explorer help for more information".

The trouble is: My security levels ARE set to Medium! I have even tried to set it to "low" to no avail.
Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!
I encounter this problem on other online installations - with similar ActiveX type of messages.

You may have to set to a 'Custom level' instead of just setting the 'medium' level. Just go through the list a select the appropriate recommended settings. Do you possibly have another security or antivirus program that maybe preventing these controls and scripts from running?

Thanks. I already tried the custom level idea. I run Norton anti virus but so do tens of thousand other people. I do have SpyBot & I read there might be a connection but I have gone over the settings over & over (nothing blocked or immunized) & I disabled Google ad blocker What else???

Do you have script blocking turned on in Norton Antivirus? If so... try it with it turned off. Spybot should not be causing any problems.
