    Hi all, I am back after chasing a 100% CPU utilization issue. After running a dozen programs (virus scan/ad-aware/SB S&D/Spysweeper/ etc...) I was not able to get this corrected. I decided to perform a fresh install of XP. Along with an update BIOS from Compaq. Pc is a 5321SR with 896 RAM.

    Well this corrected my CPU issue. Not sure why but it did. :rolleyes:

    After I was back up and running I created a restore point then went and downloaded/installed SP2.

    I when ran all of my tools again, this is where I encountered an issue. When I went to McAfees, which uses Active X to install updates. I have an issue. The problem is with the ever so useful "Information bar". The bar pops up when I try and download/update my definitions.

    Problem is I try to click on it to get the options to let Active X proceed but I do not get any options to choose from. All I get is a "whats this "information bar". Is there anyway to disable this most helpful information bar function?

    I have set all of my Active X controls in the security section of IE browser to either enable or prompt.

    I rolled back to SP1 and I have no issues. I could stay on SP1, which is my current game plan, but I can also roll up to the restore point of SP2 to try and correct issue. Once I can get all of the issues corrected I will stay on SP2.

    Any help anyone could provide would be most useful.

    Troy
