There are two types of security messages you may get when running the resource CD.

Type 1: A security warning that shows at the top of each screen with a message like:

"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that could access your computer. Click here for options..."

Solution: If using IE, go to "Tools", "Internet Options...", "Advanced" tab, "Security" section, and check the "Allow active content from CDs to run on My Computer". Or, if you prefer, you can click on the yellow shield and allowing content from the CD "temporarily."

Type 2: A security warning pops up one one of the first screens visited that looks like this:

Solution: Check "In the future, do not show this message." and click the "Yes" button. If you have not set your computer to "Allow active content from CDs to run on My Computer", then you may get this message each time you use the Resource CD.
