    yes you click on the warning and it fixs it. Or if you set your browser to defaults it does too. Your active X was shut off which is a good idea. But to use Trend micro ect you need active X enabled :)

    I believe that this yellow info bar is controlled by the setting "Automatic prompting for ActiveX controls". Yeah, I know, it doesn't seem very descriptive to me either. Even worse, you want to "enable" this "automatic prompting" if you want the yellow info bar to go away. Talk about unintuitive! Sheesh. There is also a similar setting for the yellow info bar that pops up for file downloads. Same deal basically. Below is the screenshot for the ActiveX setting. On my system I still have both to "disable" so the yellow bar still appears, anyway give it a shot, I'm pretty sure those are the settings you want...
