Security warning in IE for ActiveX

By wodoy.peter ·
In the HTML page, when we need some plugin (such as Macromedia flash player and etc), usually we'll be prompt and ask whether want to trust the files from the site or not. We have to click "OK" in order to install the plugin. It's the same for all the other activeX and plugins.

The problem:
One of my colleague wrongly click the "No" and since then ... everytime he want to view the page ... he can't. It will prompt him a message saying since you not trust the files from the site, so the plugin / ActiveX cannot be run.

Does anyone know how to reset it so that it will ask whether want to trust the files from that site again?
Anyone know how to solve this?

Remove site from the RESTRICTED list

by In reply to Security warning in IE fo ...

Hi Peter,

It appears your colleague needs to remove the site from the restricted list. It was probably added to the restricted list when he clicked NO.

1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Tools menu...
3. Internet Options menu item...
4. Security tab...
5. Click on "Restricted Sites" icon at the top of the window.
6. Click on the "Sites" button.
7. Remove the desired site from the list.

The next time you try to view that site, you should get the prompt to install the ActiveX control. Be sure you completely trust it like giving a trusted friend a key to your house!

Let me know if this helped...
