Problems with IE I think

  1. I have Windows XP Media Center Edition ver 5.1 service pack 3 and IE ver 7.0.5730.11. I recently updated IE with that "out of band security update for IE" that was talked about in my newspaper. Now, while at the AOL homepage and viewing the latest news section, When I clic on an article the text comes up but not the pictures. I get the following IE window message sometimes.
    One or more ActiveX could not be displayed because either:
    1 Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page.
    2 You have blocked a publisher of one of the controls.
    I'm a novice at the settings for IE so what should I do?

    Sounds like some settings were changed:

    1A. Check/Change Security level:
    1B. Check Image Settings
    1C. Check Active X Settings:
    2. Check phishing filter for blocked page:
    To determine if a website is a reported phishing website or not, the Phishing Filter will check the address of the website you are trying to visit on a Microsoft server to see if it’s a reported phishing site. The Phishing Filter will display a strong yellow alert if the site is questionable in the Security Status Bar, a new feature area located next to the address bar. But sometimes, a legitimate web page will get blocked.

    Reboot the computer and see if that handles the problem. Let me know.
