PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:XP SP2
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:To help protect your security Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that could access your computer.


The error message above comes up at every site I surf to, when I try searching thru google, every hit has to be dragged and dropped to the address bar.
I have looked over some of the previous posts concerning this issue,  namely 'ie information bar' from jpalm5 and 'active x controls' from sidask8r. I tried lowering the default security level (internet) to med-low, no help there. Tried custom level settings and both "run active x controls and plug-ins","script active x controls marked safe for scriping", are enabled.
 The trusted sites list in internet options was blank when I first looked into this problem, since then I've added a few sites and they don't display error.
First question... what did I do? so this don't happen again!
Second question...am I gonna have to manually fill up my trusted sites list or is there a different way?
Thanks.

Wow, three weeks later, 67 reads, zero replies! Is this as difficult as all that?

I must admit that I missed this one the first time around, but have you checked the security settings in the XP2 Security Center??

If it's set to the highest level, it will behave in a similar manner as this strange thing.

Security settings under the internet options is Medium for the internet zone.

Have you tried going to Windows Updates for a checkup??

Additionally, I reckon your system is configured to deny any ActiveX scripts from executing by default.
What you should do is this: Deny any unsigned ActiveX scripts the permission to run and let IE prompt you for the signed ones.
That way you can slowly, but surely, re-add the ones you trust.
