Joe---

When opening this new home page----I get a "bar notice" that Internet Explorer has prevented this program from installing ActiveX to my computer.

What is ActiveX----is it part of your new show, or something spam oriented??

DD - ActiveX is a control, a macro-program, similar to Java Applets, that controls information sharing between applications. It is used to enhance the ability of the Windows Operating System to co-operate with the multitude of other programs on the Internet.
The problem is that ActiveX controls have full access to the entire Windows operating system, once downloaded.

ActiveX controls are regarded by MS, as having possibly dangerous potential, if allowed to be downloaded by scammers, spammers, and porn sites, without the knowledge of the computer user.
Accordingly, Windows automatically blocks all ActiveX controls that are in the process of being downloaded, to prevent possible nefarious activity.

You only need to download ActiveX from sites that you know and can trust, such as the Cat BB's, and legit business sites. If the site you're visiting, is a little shady-looking, or you've never seen it before .. decline the offer to download the ActiveX control, just in case there is some plotter in the system, who could cause you grief, with a rogue ActiveX control, that has the ability get around Windows Security.

If this site requests you to O.K. an ActiveX control, you have no fear of any problems, because we know that Joe Black has set the site up .. and it will enhance your Windows Operating Systems ability to interact with the BB, so you can use all the features that it offers.
