    ActiveX display (IE6)

    Moved the computer, on a network, to a new location, and also installed Nortons 2006. I have my default email signature set in outlook to one with a graphic in it, plus my email address. Since the move/upgrade, the following messgae appears each time I open a new mail screen: "Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX on this page". My IE security setting appear, to me, to be fine for ActiveX,.
    Does anyone have an inkling what is causing this behaviour? <img src=/S/bananas.gif border=0 alt=bananas width=33 height=35>

    In Outlook, select Tools | Options...
    Activate the Security tab.
    On my PC, Security Zone is set to Restricted Sites. In this zone, ActiveX is disallowed.
    You could select a less restricted zone, or relax the rules for Restricted Sites.
    I'd do neither, personally - too many nasties around.

    Thanks Hans, i tend to agree with you. However it is galling to have something work, then go 'broke' when an 'upgrade' is applied. Will solve the problem by removing the logo image. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    If you edit the signature using an HTML editor (or WordPad/Notepad), you may find that it contains a Smart Tag or other ActiveX content. That can be removed, as it does nothing useful for you and may alarm the recipient (who likely will get the same warning).

    Yes you are right, my knowledge is limited so I am not too sure what to remove.

    You could post a sanitized version (change your personal information to generic sample information) for review and comment. To avoid unexpected browser interactions, it would be best to "zip" the file before posting.

    There is much not to love about Word's HTML. The attached is a stripped down file that hopefully accomplishes the same thing. It would need to be saved in the same folder so that the path to the image is correct.
