"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.

I have run all of this programs running on my computer and have found and removed some trojans but the activex problem remains only under this current profile.

Thanks for your responce in advance

Log is fine. If you go into the internet options of internet explorer and click on the security tab, then click on custom what does it say the settings are set to under activex control?
