    Have a Windows 2000 computer with Internet Explorer 6.0. We had problems with Outlook 2002 and tried reinstalling our old Outlook 98, which didn't work. Somehow during this, Internet Explorer got messed up cause it tried to install 5.0 from the older Outlook CD.

    Now it still shows version IE6.0, but when I try to go to the Microsoft Windows update on the web, as it begins to check my computer I get the message:

    "Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result, the page may not display correctly."

    It won't let me do anything further. Help!

    On the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click Internet Options.
    On the Security tab, click Internet, and then click Custom Level.
    Under Download Signed ActiveX Controls, click Enable or Prompt.
    Click OK, and then click Yes.
    Click OK.
