Which XP Reg Mod Turns Off ActiveX PopUp~IE6

By Blau67 ·
Hello All! At the moment I have ActiveX completely disabled in IE on my computer to stave off spyware I have been encountering lately! I do a limited amount of surfing on the net and so far this setting has not caused me any problems but.... I want to turn off the irritating window that pops up each time I transist from page to page warning me that I have ActiveX disabled and the page may not appear correctly!
~I.E. Your Current Security Settings Prohibit Running ActiveX Controls On This Page. As A Result, The Page May Not Display Correctly.
I know I have it disabled and do not need to be reminded each time I switch a web page! The next page will not appear until I click the OK button!! I hope someone can tell me which registry mod I must make! Any info is greatly appreciated! Thanks ! Blau

Here's a techie answer

by dirtyoldm In reply to help with activex

After turning off ActiveX, every page with one pops up "Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX..."
Manual hack to fix this, it worked:

Find \Windows (or \winnt)\system32\shdoclc.dll
A resource editor such as 'Restorator' or 'Resource Hacker' can remove the
"Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX" text and hence the popup.

PE Explorer canNOT delete Strings, just edit them.
Resource Hacker works fine, just edit and then hit 'Compile Script' button at top.

In Restorator, open shdoclc.dll, open the tree in the left pane, go to string
directory, goto element #503, right click on #503 and 'extract as 503.rc'
(should output to the bottom right panes directory.
Open 503.rc in a text editor, delete the line:
8033 "Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this
page. As a result, the page may not display correctly."
Save the file, drag and drop it onto #503 in the left pane of restorator.
Save shdoclc.dll anywhere but its original location.
Now you have to replace both the shdoclc.dll in \WINNT\System32\ and

Infuriatingly, Bill Gates won't let you replace these files while Windoze runs.

If your XP uses FAT32, simply do this in real DOS, booted from a floppy.
If you foolishly installed XP (or it came) with NTFS, use BartPE or try NTFSDOS.

As a last resort, you can plug your drive in as a second drive in another machine to copy the files.

If you boot into Safe Mode, you can replace/rename just about any Windows file you like, AFTER making a backup.

Good luck.
