Since I've updated I've noticed that there are some functions that I need to click before I can use the features. I'm not sure why this is being done but it's driving me crazy. An example - in order to use the functions of some online music players, first I must click the player itself and then I can use the on/off controls.

Is there some way that I can turn this off? I know it's not a big deal but it's an annoyance.

Sorry if this has been asked. I tried doing a search and nothing was coming up. Thanks.

I'm using IE 7 on XP. Since I updated to IE 7 this has been happening. It happens on anything that I assume would be an Active X type of control. Pretty much anything that is animated in any way, shape or form. I can give you a site example if you'd like. www.derekacorah.org.uk. When I go to that page, I have to click to activate before I can even think about using the links to navigate.

It also happens on pretty much any music players. It's not just one particular player. I'm probably not explaining this too well. Hope that website example helps.

That is definitely the problem. I was reading over the info on the link though and could not find a patch to correct this. Do you know it there is one that can be downloaded? I checked through my updates and didn't find one with that corresponding number.

Any ideas?

There's no patch to "correct" it, as this is the way Microsoft wants it.
IE7 probably had the patch, that "fixed" that behavior, incorporated into it.

Ok thanks. I appreciate the quick responses. I had a feeling it was going to be something along those lines.
