    ...per Microsoft article 833633

    On Windows 2000 desktops this breaks the ability to use Explorer to view folders, kinda major. Doesn't seem to do it on XP.

    Get message:  Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. Therefore, the page may not display correctly.

    You can click ok but folder contents still will not display, as many users have shortcuts on their desktops to folders on their hard drives this is a bit of an issue.

    Hope I am mistaken and missed something in the article, but I have read it and checked my reg files repeatedly. At least it was easy to undo, and I had only applied it to 20 users. ( MIS loves being the guinea pig )

    OMG you have got to be joking.  LOL!

    I'm so glad you went first.  I looked at that KB article, saw how complicated it was, and went, "Ummmmm.... nahhhhhhhhh!!!"

    The regfixer? Yes, deployed that to users via startup script, just make sure you keep it off the servers.

    Any idea what service pack your Win2k machine was at?  I saw the same issue with Explorer, but that was an SP3 machine - I've got to test with SP4.
    Also, is there a way to disable the message - "Your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page. Therefore, the page may not display correctly."...?
