Default ActiveX issue

Everytime I try to access the espn web page I get the following error message: Your current security settings prohibit running activeX controls on this page. As a result, the page may not display correctly.

What do I need to do to solve this problem.

OS win98 SE and i am using IE. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Send a message via Yahoo to intercodes


I dont remember the exact location, but search around in Internet options , security tab. Choose custom or decrease the security level to enable active x , which is not highly recommended !!!

I have to enable your active x control in your browser setting

go to tools/internet option/security/custom level and select enable on active x.. another solution you can do is download your self a firefox browser....and do your self a favor stay away from IE browser
