Thanks, but it seems that I left out a very important piece of information. That menu item doesn't exist for me, probably because here in Win2K land I am running Explorer 6 (oddly, at work we are required not to upgrade to 7, even though we have XP).
Careless of me. I have enabled the various choices in the security menu that are sub-items under "ActiveX controls and plug-ins," but no joy.
