    Active X security problems (Office 2K)

    I have installed the patch recommended in the Microsoft Knowledge sheet Q262767 which updates the ouactrl.ocx but now don't have access to the 'show me' or popup feature in Office 2k. Does anyone know how to use these help file features after the patch. Surely there is another patch or workaround to fix the previous very restrictive patch. <img src=/S/hairout.gif border=0 alt=hairout width=31 height=23>
