Default ActiveX controls

Hi,
I am new to computers so I need some help. I have a Compaq presario with windows me and using microsoft internet explorer. I am having problems with my ActiveX controls. For example when I am in a certain website and I want to send the page to my own e-mail, I get a window that pops up "Microsoft Internet Explorer-Yuor current settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page, as a result the page may not display correctly." When I do send the page to my e-mail the text comes in but the pictures do not. What do I do to fix this problem?
Thanks

As far as the Active X Controls, go into Internet Options (In IE, go to Tools --> Internet Options)

Click on the security tab. Then click on custom level.

Under the activeX options, change everything that says disabled to prompt. Now it will ask if you want to download/run the Active X controls.

Just be sure when browsing that you know what page is sending the activeX content. You can get some nasty viruses through activeX.

Try resetting it to default. Your email program might also be blocking them
