    KB912812 one click

    What's all this about? I just ran Windows Update and now I get a hint every time I look at my website - 'click to make activeX control active'. I think KB912812 was responsible.

    What can I do about this?

    thanks

    Use javascript to embed flash content.

    Thanks.

    There's no way to just switch off the warning in IE options?

    If there is, you'd better find it and patent it like Eolas did!

    Ta. You can be my first customer.

    I also have object/embed web3d (Cult3D) objects that this seems to be affecting. I'm assuming I can use the same flashobject file to embed them and any other ActiveX file too?

    thanks

    I mentioned this was coming on this forum, but it was basically ignored. I can tell you, this is going to blow up into a pretty big deal because the Adobe/Macromedia workaround is going to completely confuse newbies and casual users. When all those little gray boxes start appearing around all those flashy little buttons and presentations ... well, let the howling begin.

    I can confirm that aldred is pointing in the right direction. Their methods have been the most effective for me. The only problem is that, so far, it works fine in IE, but my Flash items are not visible in Firefox.

    Hi toulouse2k

    I just tested my content with Netscape and Firefox, and everything worked fine.
    I'm using the simple document.write method. It's working for other ActiveX objects other than Flash too.
