I am trying to update a WinXP Home computer at the Windows update site.
Every time I connect to Windows update I get the message "Your current
security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. As a
result, the page may not display properly."

I have set all of the Security settings in IE to low and enabled every
ActixeX control possible on the laptop. I have run two different virus
scanners and have found no viruses. I have run Adaware and Spy-bot and the
system is clean. Nothing I try will even let Internet Explorer begin to
download any kind of update for IE or for Windows. If there a way to fix the
ActiveX problem without the original XP Home disk? The laptop I am trying to
fix belongs to a person from New Orleans who lost her software and almost
everything else she owned in the hurricane. So I don't even have the
original software. Any help would be appreciated!

I am wondering if it is possible to do a repair of Win XP Home without the
original cd? Since it was lost in the hurricane I don't know how to go about
getting a replacement and I think the ActiveX part of the software needs
repairing. Any ideas?

Put "*.microsoft.com" in the IE Trusted Security Zone.

If she's running a firewall it could also be blocking the ActiveX
control.

Just read your post....just had the same problem. I copied a post from
someone previously on the same problem. Do what it says. It worked for
me...and I was skeptical. It appears others have had the same trouble:

I had the same problem when I tried to update my system running windows xp.
The advice that I got from tech support was to re-register the following .dll
files using the regsvr command, *Softpub.dll, *Wintrust.dll, *Initpki.dll,
and *Urlmon.dll.
1. Click Start ->Run and type "regsvr32 Softpub.dll" (without double quotes)
2 Click okay to register it
3. Do the same re-registration process with the rest of the .dll files.
Restart your computer and try the update site again. If this doesn't work,
they gave me a couple of other suggestions to try. It worked for me, good luc
