Darn new Microsoft changes I loaded the complex "security" package last Wednesday (first day it was available on-line). I've got to copy the error message. Can you believe that Microsoft cannot even let you copy your error? Why can't one select it in the normal way, CONTROL "C" to copy it and take it somewhere else? Not only that, the error can't autoresize and insists on taking up half the screen???? Here is the error: To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from shown active content that could access your computer. Click here for options... I have an error instead of opitions of what to do with my pictures. Unlike the better firewall NORTON, this firewall of microsoft does not tell me what file is messed up nor how it is messed up. I want to do stuff with my pictures Here is the info topic related to this. -------------------------- What is active content and why does Internet Explorer restrict it? Active content is content that relies on either ActiveX controls or computer code called a script to work properly. Examples include stock tickers, video, and animated content on Web pages. These programs can, however, malfunction or give you content you don’t want. In some cases, these programs can be used to collect information from your computer in ways you might not approve of, possibly damage data on your computer, install software on your computer without your consent, or allow someone else to control your computer remotely. Given these risks, you should only install these programs if you completely trust the publisher. If a Web page you visit tries to display active content, you will see the message below (click the message for more information). "To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that could access your computer. Click here for options..." ----------------------------------- Recall I'm looking at my own pictures, i am not accessing any foreign site. The same error happens when going to "My music", "My ebooks" (i never put an ebook in that file???), "My vidios" (nothing I put there either). Wonderful Microsoft. We lasted for years not using Microsoft explorder browser, till they bankrupted with other browser providers.
