Default Active-X and SP2 problem

My PC with SP2 refuses to allow the HP site to download and install an
active-ex script to check and see if I need updated software. HOW THE
$&*&^%$ bloody hell do I shut that damn thing off? I need this done. Do I
have to uninstall SP2 yet again to allow the HP site to install the script?
Clicking on the bar to allow it to download on my PC didn't work.

How do I get rid of these Sp2 pain in the ass security problems?

My PC is a HP w/W-XP Home/SP2 .

I'm the Owner Administrator of the PC and the only user.

TIA

The "pain in the ass" security problems have probably saved your ass when
you go to a malicious web site. Your attitude is why there are so many
successful malware infections. I'm not going to tell you how to disable the
secrurity because this is a public newsgroup and someone who doesn't
understand the implications may disable the activex security and be infected
because of it. It is in the Internet Explorer settings under
Options/Security. You'll have to play with it yourself to figure it out.

$$ My attitude soured when the MS warning bar said CLICK HERE to allow the
download then still would not allow me to download the Acive-X I needed. We
should be warned we may experience such problems and how to avoid them.
*When I clicked to allow the download it still would not allow the HP
Active-X to download.* It would be nice of these security-programs
actually worked as they're supposed to. I'm sorry but I spent a lot of time
trying to get that download last night and didn't need all the aggravation
of a non-working (says to click here to download then wont allow it anyway)
security-program.

I'm not going to tell you how to disable the
secrurity because this is a public newsgroup and someone who doesn't
understand the implications may disable the activex security and be
infected because of it.


$$ Then how do I download the Active-X from HP's website???

It is in the Internet Explorer settings under
Options/Security. You'll have to play with it yourself to figure it out.


$$ Following the HP websites information I set my security to MEDIUM and the
SP2 thing still wouldn't allow the download, even though it said to CLICK
the bar to allow it. I feel like I've given up the power over my PC to MS.
The bar shouldn't say CLICK HERE if it still don't allow the download.

Press the Custom Level button. Check out the settings to do with ActiveX.
Make sure you write down any changes you do so you can set it back. I would
try the suggestion from Laythos first and add the HP site to the Trusted
Sites.

You put the HP site in the Trusted security Zone.


** I didn't put the HP site anywhere. What do you mean?


Try this site for something easy to understand.
http://www.pensacolasgreatest.com/settings.html


## Oh. Yes, I already added HP.

If you take the time to read and do a google search,


** Google search for WHAT?


If you can form a question, enter the "question" into the google search
box and press enter.


## I can type in the whole problem? ??!?!?!

you can find the answer fairly easily


** Where? What do I look for and where?


Open www.google.com, enter "how to I add sites to my trusted zone" and
press enter - start reading.


## I already added HP to this trusted zone. I set security to LOW and abled
all Active-X to enable. I still can't get SP2 to stop blocking the Active-X
from HP - I can't even get updates from MS now either. How do I disable
this SP2 security feature so I can get updates?

- and the foul language is not
called for in public, unless you don't want any more help.


** What foul language? "Bloody hell" isn't foul language in the the USA.


No, it's the language of the Brits and rag-heads.


## LOL!!!! :-D Sorry about that!

## I already did that! I can't think of anything else to do!!!! I am
unable to get updates from HP and MS itself!

Then it is something else causing the problem. I would suspect some malware
has changed something in the registry. Run some virus and spyware scans.

=============================
I will. I have about 5 anti-scumware programs on my PC. I'll try running
them all tonight.
