    When I log on, I get the following error message under a "Microsoft Internet Explorer" title:
    "This page provides potentially unsafe information to an Active X control. Your current security settings prohibit running controls in this manner. As a result, this page may not display correctly."
    I also get this message sometimes when trying to download some information. It specifically shows up when trying to download a PDF file - the file says "done", but there is nothing downloaded - just a white background. I know my Acrobat Reader works (5.0), as I am able to open previously stored PDF files. I have also tried enabling all Active X controls in the internet security box, but to no avail. I have also shut off my ZoneAlarm firewall - still no success. Any suggestions?
