    Hello I'd like to reopen this thread since I'm having the exact problem Blade was having, however when I follow the steps provided by Mosaic1, I noticed that "Control Panel" isn't listed as an option for me in the pane. Since everything is listed in the window alphabetically the only options I have in the c's are "Caretbrowsing & Command Bar". Ideas anyone?

    (Previous Thread)
    While looking through my Internet Options, I noticed I no longer have a security tab!! All I have is General, Privacy, Content, Connections, and Programs. The security tab is GONE! Please help, I want to change my JAVA and Active X controls.

    Thanks, Blade

    It sounds like a regsitry restrictoin is in place. GO to start>Run and type regedit. Press enter.
    Navigate to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel
    Hightlight Control Panel in the left pane.
    Look for this entry in the right pane.
    SecurityTab
    If you find it, right click onit and choose delete from the pop up menu.
    Open a new instance of IE to see the change.

    Click Start > Run > type gpedit.msc

    Press Enter.

    Click "User Configuration".

    Expand Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer.

    Click Control Panel.

    Click Disable Security tab and see if the option is Enabled.

    Just an FYI that the registry key you're looking at is the wrong one. You were looking at:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer

    when it should be:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel
