I get this massage when i start use msn games ActiveX Objects Missing 2 Messenger games require ActiveX objects in order to play. Please verify that you have the ability to install ActiveX objects...

That usually indicates some settings in your Internet Options have been changed in your security settings, and it is blocking the installation of Active X add ins for your Browser.

With your Internet Explorer open, click on TOOLS > Internet Options.
Click on the Tab Security.
The Icon for Internet should be highlighted.
Look for a button " Restore Defaults" and click on it. Then click on the Apply Button.
Then click on the Tab General and Click on the Delete button in the center of the screen.
Delete the Cookies and Temporary Internet Files

Close Internet Explorer, and reopen it.

Try your games again and see if it prompts you to install the Active X add ins it needs to run the games.

If you need to reply, use the "add a comment" link.

Thank you.

When start HP director on WXP a message window opens: "One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed becose either 1. Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on...

Hi there,


This issue occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • The Project Guide is enabled.
  • Security settings for the Local Machine zone are configured to prevent ActiveX content from running.
Note The security settings for the Local Machine zone control the browsing of local content in Windows Internet Explorer. The Project Guide is an Internet Explorer page that displays in Project.


Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. Please Click the link below to know how to back up.

To resolve this issue, use one of the following methods.

Method 1 loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution');
  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  2. Expand the following registry subkey: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\0
  3. In the right pane, right-click 1200, and then click Modify.
  4. In the Value data box, type either 1 or 0 to overwrite the existing value of 3. Then, click OK.

    Note If you type 1 in the Value data box, you will receive the following prompt when you start Microsoft Project: Do you want to allow software such as ActiveX controls and plug-ins to run?Additionally, you will receive this prompt at other times when you use Microsoft Project. If you do not want to receive this prompt, type 0 in the Value data box.

    The values 0, 1, and 3 are associated with the following behavior:
    • 0 = Enabled, or the action is permitted
    • 1 = Prompt
    • 3 = Disabled, or the action is not permitted
  5. Quit Registry Editor.
If this issue still occurs after you perform this procedure, your administrator may have set a policy that prevents ActiveX content from running in the Local Machine zone. We recommend that you contact your administrator to configure the settings for the Local Machine zone. For more information about the Microsoft Internet Explorer security settings that cause this error message, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 833633 ( ) How to strengthen the security settings for the Local Machine zone in Internet Explorer
Method 2 loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); Turn off the Project Guide. To do this, perform one of the following actions, depending on your version of Project:
  • Project 2007
    On the View menu, click Turn Off Project Guide.
  • Project 2002 and 2003
    On the Tools menu, click Options, click the Interface tab, and then click to clear the Display Project Guide check box. Then, click OK.

URGENT - Windows XP Home edition -ActiveX Control problem -URGENT

The Lookout Web Client is implemented as an ActiveX Control. ActiveX Controls can execute any code on a local computer from a webpage (they can even delete files), so you should always be familiar with the origin of the control that is being loaded. There are two types of ActiveX Controls: unsigned and signed. Signed controls keep information about their origin (see the last picture below), while unsigned controls do not. Because the signing technology guarantees that the signature cannot be falsified (e.g., by a hacker), signed controls are usually considered safe.
Lookout 6.0 and higher uses a signed web client ActiveX control and is considered safe by Internet Explorer under the default settings. If the security settings have been changed (either by the user or system administrator), follow the procedure below.
Lookout 5.1 and earlier uses an unsigned web client ActiveX control. By default, Internet Explorer prohibits downloading and running unsigned ActiveX controls on your computer for security purposes. If you are familiar with the download, then you can relax the security settings.
  1. In Internet Explorer, Go to View (or Tools) » Internet Options » Security » Trusted Sites
  2. Click the Sites button.
  3. Enter the URL of the Lookout Web Client.
  4. Deselect Require server verification (https:),
  5. Click OK to return to the Internet Options.
  6. Make sure that the Trusted Sites security level is set to "Low".
    • If you do not see the slide bar for the level, click the Default Level button.

Or Try This

To resolve this issue, unregister the Comcat.dll file by using the Regsvr32.exe utility with the /u switch as in the following example: regsvr32 /u C:\winnt\system32\comcat.dll and rename the Comcat.dll file in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder.

After you unregister the Comcat.dll file, reinstall Internet Explorer.

For information about how to rename a file, click Start, click Help, click the Index tab, type renaming, and then double-click the "Renaming files" topic.

If you remove Internet Explorer before you reinstall it, be sure to rename the Comcat.dll file after removing Internet Explorer.

Corrupted Desktop?

No, this is a hardware setting. When you checked your display monitor for manual settings did you see any? There would be display width, height, pincushion, trapezoid, etc. Which monitor do you have? Also you can still have Internet Explorer installed with any other browser as your default. When you go to Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs>Windows Features select Internet Explorer to reinstall that. Firefox does not support ActiveX scripting which is necessary to run many Microsoft diagnostic programs so never completely uninstall IE. You may also just download IE7 which is a tabbed browser like FireFox. Choosing FireFox allows better security but that is only because it does not use ActiveX.
