    Microsoft advise me of an upgrade that I need and then says I need ActiveX.
    Have checked that this is enabled but it does not show up on my toolbar. Any

    Try registering the control:

    Start ... Run then type:

    regsvr32.exe "C:\The full path to the control.ocx"

    A path is something like:

    "C:\Windows\system32\notepade.exe"

    You need to use the path to your ActiveX control in its place. It's
    important to put it in quotes in case there is a space in it (Program Files,
    Documents and Settings, etc.).

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
