    Re: XP repair

    The only software I know that can do this is called setup.exe on the WinXP installation CD...
    Or, if you have an earlier image of your system (Ghost, Acronis or whatever)...
    I apologize in front for the not-so serious answer, but with the info you gave, this is the only thing I could think of...
    If you could elaborate a bit about the problem you have, it will help me (and others) advance to a more serious attitude...

      Hi

      I have fixed the Active X problem

      2. When I press Run button to download a programme it finishes the download but it doesn't load up.

      Merry Christmas

        Re: XP repair

        OK... That's a start...
        Follow-up questions:
        1. What XP version are you using?
        2. Are you in an AD environment? At the Office? Or at home?
        3. What version of IE are you using?
        4. Are you logged in with a users that has privileges (PowerUser, Administrator), or a plain user?
        5. Do you have installed any third-party security applications (anti-virus, firewall, pop-up blockers)?

        There is more, but that's enough homework for the time being....

            I have made a video of the problem with the downloads. It may help you.

              Re: XP repair

              does the run function work when you're using Firefox for example?

              Have you tried to reset the browser to it's defaults?
              This is done through the Internet Options, Advanced tab, Reset button.

              Have you tried to re-install IE by uninstall and install it again?

              Have you scanned you're client for any virusses and spyware?

                Other things I can suggest you are:
                - try to do the same when your AV application is disabled. I know, it's dangerous, so download something you know from a site you trust;
                - log in as another user and see if the problem persist (if it's a profile-related or a computer-related problem...);
                - if instead of running the application from the browser you try to save it, does it show in the specific folder? Can you check that the application is saved in the Temporary Internet Files somewhere when you're trying to run it?
                - restore the browser to its defaults (as Dumber said).

                How did you solved the ActiveX issue?

                  Hi guys,

                  I moved over to Firefox. The downloads work. I moved over to Firefox and Active X problem stopped

                  I tried reset IE still no luck. Check for Viruses and spyware none found

                  I can save the downloads and open them.

                  Reinstall IE and still no luck

                  Thanks


                  Merry Christmas
