    Unsafe ActiveX Control Error dialog

    Has anyone got the fix for this? Whenever I try to access any part of the online Help system in any Windows application, I get the following error message (which does not happen on my W98 machine at home):

    You probably have a modified security setting that exists in Internet Explorer. Go to the Tools->Options menu in IE and see if you can reset the security permissions on the Security tab. If you're in a corporate environment, you may be stuck with a system policy that prevents you from changing those settings.

    The second question? If they have system policies, it might continue to be, but I doubt it. Windows 2000 is a little different at how it handles security, and policies. It is essentially NT4 with the plug and play promise of 98, so don't expect huge changes - but don't expect the problem to go away, and you won't be disappointed. [img]/w3timages/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Thanks to those who replied to my post. Odd that the error message does not appear when using IE browser, only affects the Windows & Office Help files... I will try reinstalling IE if the W2000 upgrade does not fix it.[img]/w3timages/icons/tonguea.gif[/img]
