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

This happens when a specific user logs in. This user has administrative rights. And this happens when he tries to open any of windows folders or applets (My Computer, Recycle Bin, Control Panel and the likes) not while on the web or while using IE, also it does not happens if same user logs in safe mode. Example if I double click my computer I will get above message and a blank page, the status bar will say 6 objects and nothing is displayed. I can run or start third patty software from the desktops shortcuts or programs under start. If I try to use windows explorer I get same message but I'm able to expand folder on left pane but not actually view the contents on the right. Same message for Recycle and Control Panel similar display the contents on the left with a up and down bar on the right.

This only happens on one of four users that login to this computer.
All four users have administrative rights.

Thanks for your responce in advance

Hello lanra. Sounds like an ActiveX problem. You can try having that particular user go to the Internet Explorer options and reset them to the defaults. In IE click Tools then Options. On the Advanced tab click the Restore Defaults button. Reboot the machine and try it.

If that doesn't work you might want to post a HijackThis log in the HijackThis forum.
