Windows blocking ActiveX installation

I'm trying to download an ActiveX control for something. The yellow bar comes up in IE and says I've to click for options. I do and a little box comes up with:

Install ActiveX
What's the risk
More information

I click on install ActiveX and a Windows box appears saying:

Windows has blocked this software because it can't verify the publisher

Name: webrec.cab
Publisher: Unknown Publisher

OK button




There is no option to override it.

I know the ActiveX is o.k. so can I install it somehow? I don't want to lower my overall security level settings if poss, just allow this to install.

    You could always lower them, install Active x then raise them straight after?

    Or you can set up a custom level in Internet Options where you can be very specific about what to allow in terms of Active x.

    try adding the site to the 'Trusted Sites'

    Go to the site
    Click on Tool>Internet Options>Security>Trusted Sites>Sites>ADD

    Be sure you trust it tho mate, not something you want to do unless your certain.

    Cheers fellas, sorted.

    Yeah the activex is safe. It's so I can look at the cctv cameras I've just had installed over a web-browser rather than linked ethernet cable which means I can view remotely from other pc's

    It's quite a timely reminder though having got another lappy since the original question, and couldn't for the life remember how I did it the first time :-)
