ActiveX and Win98 Help Troubleshooter (rears its ugly head again)

Post by PA Bea » Mon, 31 Oct 2005 04:12:40


Any of you care to wade in here?...

<QP>
Can someone tell me how to delete the registry entry that disables the
Active X controls in the TSHOOTER.OCX file.

I installed Q811630, reinstalled TSHOOT.INF and downloaded and used
Win98_TS_Fix.zip and none of them worked. I keep getting:

"Microsoft Internet Explorer: Your current security settings prohibit
running ActiveX controls on this page. As a result, the page may not display
properly."

I've been exposed to XP-radiation too long to remember all the ins & outs of
this. (Where's Dundat when you need him?)

TSHOOT.INF appears never to have been updated. So, if yours (in Win98SE)
is dated Friday, April 23, 1999 10:22:00 PM & is 8,754 bytes, it should
be the right one & doing the right thing to TSHOOTER.OCX.

Are you sure it isn't the other thing, the kill bit, at fault...?...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX
Compatibility\{4B106874-DD36-11D0-8B44-00A024DD9EFF}

Compatibility Flags 0x00000400 (1024) <<Dword value 400

Set that to zeros. Tshoot.inf does one thing. This does another.

Well, that's... TSHOOT.OCX. The kill bit is separate from what
Tshoot.inf does. And both must be done to undo the workings of an IE
Cumulative Critical Update.

Much worse, I see. Based on the current state of the system and the apparent
priorities of the poster, I have decided to forego entering that thread after all.

[....]
[....]

...I just made a few quick screenshots for reference - for clarity sake:

I assume his complaint is that he is getting this 'common' ActiveX prompt?:
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

What's the big deal with the prompt to him?
I get it all the time since I have it turned off - on purpose.
...but which happens on Many a variety of websites that have whatever
ActiveX event within, like for instance this MS one: (random link)
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

..which in order to not get prompted with that particular prompt above, the
most common Internet Options settings that need to be set 'enabled' are not
just one - but these specific two settings I circled here:
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

(yes even the first one, even if no download per-se is taken, if not
enabled it will still give the above prompt)

(if he's getting the prompt at some crck or pron site or something, then of
course No don't enable it anyway, or do so at his own risk)

(if you put the website in your Trusted Zone then both settings need to be
enabled in there, or, if the site is not in your Trusted Zone and you
don't want it to be, then those settings need to be enabled in your
Internet Zone :( ...speaking of which I personally never have them
enabled anywhere unless for a specific event, and I could care less about
that prompt which happens all the time, which is generic in nature anyway
in the sense that the webpage will still function, it's just an ActiveX
component of that particular website won't operate is all, which in the
majority of the cases is not a big deal in all ways and the webpage works
just fine - minus the AX event gadget)

Normally, he should not be fooling with the registry or worrying about OCX
files, etc, and only needs to make the settings adjustments as noted.
Provided of course with all the other rigmarole he's done has not debunked
any other things; if he has then just reinstall ActiveX related components.

A! What COULD you have meant by "(NB: Many participants are MVPs; PCR
is not)", and what is "NB"?

I'm inclined to agree with Chauvin, that the message has to do with
Internet Options, Security tab, not with any Windows Update. I'm also
inclined to agree with Glee & want to stay out of it.

Oh. I see he does have his Troubleshooters back. That's good, except for
the vulnerability of it. But he could toggle that kill bit. And he has
begun to take the Windows Updates again. When he gets to the IE
Cumulatives, he'll lose those Troubleshooters again. You know that.

I don't see that he recovered his older Add/Remove entries. I think
Leboeuf had a fix for that, which may also be in one of these...

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;240348&Product=w98
All Installed Programs May Not Be Displayed in the Add/Remove Programs

(240348) - You may notice that all of the programs that are installed on
your computer may not be displayed in the Add/Remove Programs tool.

Nota bene... you mean?

Ohhhhhh! Well, thanks, Colorado. I GUESS I needed to know. But DON'T
remind me of it again, after I've forgotten! And hold me back in the
interim, if Bear dares show his face here again! Ever!

I'm over it to then :) ...but I think he's done anyway because at the end
of this sentence he wrote below he said it "did the job" ...and so I take
it that means he's got it fixed, even though he was barking up and at the
wrong trees.
