What is active content and why does Internet Explorer restrict it?
Active content is interactive or animated content used on websites. It includes ActiveX controls and web browser add-ons, which are small programs that are used extensively on the Internet. Active content can make web browsing more enjoyable by providing toolbars, stock tickers, video, animated content, and more.
Why does Internet Explorer restrict active content?
Internet Explorer restricts this content because occasionally these programs can malfunction or give you content you don't want. In some cases, these programs can be used to collect information about you, damage information on your computer, install software without your consent, or allow someone else to control your computer remotely. Given these risks, you should allow active content only if you completely trust the publisher or the website it's coming from. (And you can trust Rene on his baby blue eyes ...)
How can I allow active content?
If Internet Explorer restricts active content that you are sure you want to allow, click the gold Information bar that appears at the
topbottom of the webpage, and then click Allow blocked content.
When you view the galleries of this website in Internet Explorer, be sure to allow the ActiveX content to get the most of this viewing experience. The ActiveX content on this website is restricted to the lightbox functionality. Other browsers, like Chrome and Edge, will run the ActiveX component natively and safely.
