Add on problems on Windows XP
When I start IE, I always get a warning that my system is running with add on's disabled. I go into "tools" and "manage add on's" and check to see if they are enabled and they are. One that seems to be real important is "Active X". I only know this because of trying to download pics onto FB. System always says something about installing Active X controls to continue. So the FB was the first indication that I have some sort of problem on my computer. Some time later I started getting the warning about my system running with add on's disabled. What the heck is going on with this sytem. I've had this comuter for four years. Also, I have never backed up any files or system before, so that will be another issue I may have to face.Please help, it's a good computer, just needs care.Thanks,clmoz1 person needs an answerI do too

Back up your data NOW or there will be Tears Before Bedtime very soon. Do this before you do anything else. As for the IE issue, please start with the basics: Come back with the results of the scanning for more help. When you post back, please also include some information about your computer, the antivirus/security programs you have installed, and what version if IE you have (IE6, IE7, or IE8). You can tell which version you have by opening IE and clicking on Help>About.MS-MVP - Elephant Boy Computers - Don't Panic!
