Im asking this here because I have tried several times to access today and keep getting a prompt saying an Active X control isnt safe on that site. Since TFL and use the same software, I'm wondering, can anyone here help me out? BTW, I'm using IE 5. Thanks.

I use Netscape...
I just got the message "Server down or not responding"

I think your Active X message is just some peculiarity of IE....the server is down and we wait

BP - ActiveX is a MSoft OLE protocol that allows/controls interactive window activities like animation, push buttons, etc. I don't know why is rejecting your login, but you might try to use a lower security setting. Go to the Control Panel; open "Internet Options"; select the security tab and then select a lower security level. (If using WinNT, go to same screen and click on Enable ActiveX). If this doesn't help, well, I'm clueless.
