What do I do if ActiveX is blocked in I.E
If IE is configured to not let you install unverified software it might block ActiveX when you try to view your IP camera via IE.
See http://www.windowsreference.com/internet-explorer/windows-has-blocked-this-software-because-it-cant-verify-the-publisher/ for more information on the problem, however the short steps to try are:
- Open Internet Explorer, click Tools – Internet Options .
- Click the Security tab – Custom Level button.
Under ActiveX ensure the following are set to enabled
Run ActiveX and plug-ins – Enabled
Download Signed ActiveX Control – Enabled
Script ActiveX controls marked as safe for scripting – Enabled
Set the following to “Prompt ”

Initialize and script ActiveX controls not mark as safe – Prompt
- Click OK and Apply and OK. Restart the browser.
