Since using Firefox I am unable to log on remotely and get the error message "This portion of the Remote Web Workplace requires the Microsoft Remote Desktop ActiveX Control. Your browser's security settings may be preventing you from downloading ActiveX controls. Adjust these settings, and try to connect again." How do I adjust the settings to run the Active X Control?

== I think it started when I switched my downloads to a different folder (on my desktop), but it didn't get fixed when I switched back to the download folder.

Hi, since a couple of days ago, I am having trouble opening a select few webites and get the message that they have timed out. They are popular ones, ebay.ca, BBC, and chapters.ca. I also cannot view the itunes store in itunes, although I am still able to update podcasts. The only thing I did recently to the computer was uninstall norton, and install Microsoft security essentials. I have xp and firefox 3.6.3 I've searched for solutions and have cleared cache, cookies, updated java, ran norton removal tool, removed cookie file, tried no proxy, tried auto-detect proxy...and I am stumped. I don't know what else to try. Any ideas?

This is my 6th attempt to download a 1.3gig movie file. I have already turned off my virus check so that Firefox will download past the 1 gig mark. However, this morning my internet connection failed and the download was gone, though it is not completed to its full amount, just a little over 1 gig.

Is there any way to recover and resume this download from the existing, almost completed file? The server does support resuming downloads.
