*** After you are able to load the video from the camera in IE and the Active X control is installed, go back to
Tools, Internet Options, Security, Internet and click DEFAULT LEVEL! *** This will reset the Active X settings back to normal and the camera should still work fine. The settings only need to be changed the first time you view the camera in IE.
Please reply and let us know if this works for you or not.
Edit: I have a Windows 7 PC and a Windows 8 PC that automatically upgraded to IE 11 without my knowledge. I had problems with my cameras and some other devices so I uninstalled IE 11 and now I have IE 10 again. To prevent IE from updating again I went to Tools, About Internet Explorer and unchecked "Install new versions automatically" I don't think this will work with Windows 8.1 because it comes with IE11.
