Norton Internet Security and ActiveX controls

By m-hewson ·
When loading a Java page Norton IS 2005 tells me it is trying to load an ActiveX control. As there is not ActiveX control on the URL I find this behaviour somewhat surprising and also frustrating as anyone who uses this URL is either finding the page is getting blocked or NIS is popping up the message every time the page is loaded. Any ideas as to why Norton treats Java pages as ActiveX controls?

There are a few possibilities such as the OS is trying to load one because of the presence of a particular content.

The only item in the page is some javascript and the Tags for loading the sun java applet - we are using Object tags to load the applet but I can't believe that would cause the problem?

It used to be the only way you could do it.

Can't help you with symantec I'm afraid , the only bit I use is uninstall.
