Step 2: Open internet options and select the Security Tab.

Step 3: Now, select Custom level.  Now you want to locate where it says download side ActiveX Controls as well as download Unsigned ActiveX Control.

Step 4: So just scroll down and allow ActiveX Filtering Enable.

Step 5: Allow previously unused Effects Controls for one without prompt you can keep the Disabled Automatic Prompting for Activist Controls.

That’s fine you can keep that disables. But versus download signed ActiveX Controls just keep it a prompt which should be recommended here and then it says download Unsigned academics Controls keep that to disabled if there’s an issue you can try enabling that or Prompting it probably better than just going ahead and just Straight up Enabling it but you have that option there. So pretty straightforward once you’re done with that go ahead and select okay again and then just restart your computer and that be about it.
