Hello

Yesterday morning I got this warning message on booting up about activex http://www.edenworkshops.com/warning.jpg

Later that day I tried to access my html editor (xsitepro) but could not view any images.

Everything else seems to be working, no problem with browsers etc.

Here is my system information...Thank you. Richard

Start Internet Explorer, then go to Tools - Internet Options - Security(tab).

Set all 4 zones to "Default level".

Click Apply.

Go to Privacy(tab) - Advanced.

Select "Override automatic cookie handling", "First party cookies - Accept", "Third party cookies - Block", "Always allow session cookies".

Click OK - Apply - OK.

Close Internet Explorer, then reopen it.

Hello flavallee

I did as you suggested but I still cannot access my html editor.

My default browser is firefox 3.6.13, does that make a difference?

Thank you

Richard

Hello

I just ran malwarebytes and it picked up 346 nasties in my system.

That has cured the problem.

Thank you all very much.

Regards

Richard

I'm glad to hear that you're using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.50.1.1100 and that it found and removed those 346 problems.

I suggest that you also install and use SUPERAntiSpyware 4.47.0.1000 and run a quick scan with it and then remove everything it finds. I'm guessing that it'll find numerous "adware tracking cookies" and other problems.

Always make sure to first update the definition files before you run a quick scan with them.

I personally use them once a week.

I was assuming you're using Internet Explorer 8.
