How to turn off MSIE Active X warnings in XP *HOME* - not Pro?

By Rick_R ·
How can I turn off those incredibly annoying constant "Script or Active X" warnings in MSIE 7 in XP *Home* ? I know that XP Pro has the Group Policy Editor, but I tried copying that to XP Home and it doesn't work. I am trying to look at HTML pages on the computer and EVERY page pops up with a warning.

Don't bother telling me to switch to Firefox--that is what I normally use. But I need to also use MSIE.

I noticed a link to some supposedly free software but I'm worried it might be malware.

After I posted this I found the answer. This should work with any version of MSIE and any version of Windows.

MSIE => Tools => Internet Options => Advanced
Scroll down to Security
Click the Allow Active X to run from CD & from files on My Computer
