    Hi all, Im hoping someone can help with the new windows live messenger which I have downloaded recently. I cant seem to access some of the content and am being given an error message of " your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result, the page may not display correctly."

    I have searched my security settings in IE and Mozilla firefox but it doesnt seem to make any difference.

    Any help would be appreciated.......

    A few questions:

    1) do you have any firewalls running? Some firewalls can be configured to block ActiveX content, as it a known route of infection.

    2) Have you tried uninstalling, downloading a fresh copy, rebooting, and then re-installing. Sometimes this clears up "weird problems" with software.

    This will help me and the rest of us see if we can't figure out the source of the problem.
