"To help protect your security, "

What is "active content"? My ASP page just returns HTML....
I have a page with an .htm extension that has a form whose action
is an ASP page which generates a report after updating a database
with the form data.

Under Windowx XP SP2 the IE6 "Informatio n Bar" has the message:

"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this
file from showing active content that could access your computer."
I found the fix (at the link below) that says to (under IE6) go to
Tools + Internet Options + Advanced then scroll down to Security
and check "Allow active content to run in files on My Computer"

Microsoft details below <<<


Microsoft states the following:

Active Content Blocked -- Detailed description

When active content is blocked from running in the
Local Machine zone, the Information Bar will appear.

The Information Bar includes descriptive text that explains why
the action was taken and provides a context sensitive menu that
you can use to respond to the notification. The following table
identifies the text that will appear in the Information Bar and the
actions that you can select from the menu.

What's the Risk?

Why is this change important? What threats does it help mitigate?

In Windows XP SP2, Internet Explorer sometimes blocks active
content which may be necessary to complete certain tasks.
This new user interface element ensures that there is a notification
that allows people to complete these tasks on Web pages they trust.

What works differently?

The Local Machine zone mitigation will now use the new Information Bar.

For more information, see "Internet Explorer Local Machine Zone Lockdown,"
later in this document.

We're from MicroSoft, and we're here to help.....
It looks like you're writing a letter. How may we screw it up for you?

Switch to FireFox, and get the better protection without the nuisance.

PS - I develop software using MS products & technologies, which I love. The
current IE, however, is a lumbering dinosaur facing imminent extinction.

Hello, I need to convert a string to a number, but the string can contain +,-,* and / as well as parenthesis.

I lost it, and most of my programming knowledge, but I figured perhaps there is a way to do this easily in python? It...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
