Internet Explorer 7 Active X control

  1. Hello

    I am currently trying to download the latest version of Adobe Flash player from the Adobe site and just before the installation I get the below popup in IE7

    "Internet Explorer blocked this site from using an activeX control in an unsafe manner"

    I have tried the following:
    Adjusted the security settings in IE7
    Downloaded and installed a standalone version
    Downloaded the latest XPP and IE updates

    Can anyone think of anything else other than installing another web browser?

    I'm not really sure.. The only thing i can think of is you're not on the official Adobe site?
    Click here and try Adobe Flash
    Or here's a direct link to the download from the Adobe site

    I also highly suggest you use a different browser to IE. Try Opera

    Hope this helps

    Install Firefox. Use it to make the install download, then use IE to do a install download, then attempt to install them in SAFE MODE
