I'm not sure I should even post this on this forum, but seeing that the problem I have is with Internet Explorer, and it being a Mircosoft product, I suppose some of you might be able to help.


I am a web developer and I am running a fallback code, so that Internet Explorer 8 can read the code correctly (which it does). Anyhow, I am running the emulation of it on Windows 7. Basically, I have two identical scripts, which act like the jquery accordion. This morning, everything worked fine, but now I get an Internet Explorer 8 error. It has that ActiveX Filtering circle with the line in it at the top left (i don't know the proper term for it, sorry). Basically, it supposedly protects me from... well script. Thus, I cannot run the damn clips.


See, the problem is that IF I turn off ActiveX Filtering, the jquery accordion completely messes up and doesn't even open. Worst, the second accordion does not even show up. Thus, I need to fix the ActiveX Filtering. What can I do to fix that? Why would I be able to view the clips this morning, and now I can't?


I have re-instated the original file with only one video to see if the problem was my own code, but it wasn't that.


I have downloaded Adobe Flash, which is the ONLY thing I have done with IE today. As I never use IE.


I then proceeded to reset all my settings to default. To no avail.

Hello -

Windows 7 should not be using I.E. 8 as a browser.


Do you update Windows (normal Windows Updates) every month or so ??

If so, you will not be using I.E. 8 but at a minimum, I.E. 9 or 10


Try your normal Windows Updates for for current updates (regardless of what browser you have added on)

Oh, I am not using IE8. I use IE11. but for testing purposes (as a Web Developer), I must emulate IE8 within IE11. IE11 has Developer Tools by pressing F12, and you can verify legacy browsers.
