This question pertains to F-Secure Online Scanner, IE (v6.0), & Admin. Rights.

I use Firefox, but dusted off Internet Explorer 6.0 in order to use F-Secure Online Scanner (http://support.f-secure.com/enu/home/). However, I ran into the problem listed below & need a solution.

After d/l the program, at the license agreement, this notice pops-up: "Insufficient rights to use ActiveX controls. Please check your user rights & IE security setting.” Site might require ActiveX controls “OLS 3.3”

So, I right click on the IE icon, click “run as…” and get two choices:

Run as current user xxxx/rick, or

following user with a drop down choice showing my name.

I see no admin. rights.

Hello Diff and welcome to BC :flowers:

You wouldn't see the user rights in that drop down menu.

From what you've posted, I assume you have two user accounts on the machine. Is that right?

When you created these accounts, did you set them up as limited accounts or as accounts with administrative rights?

The other thing is the settings in IE. Open the browser and click on Internet Options. Click on the security screen and then click on Internet Zone. Scroll down to see the settings under Active X. Basically, anything unsigned or considered unsafe should be blocked. I personally set the rest to prompt.
