ActiveX controls for Skype.

When I open Skype, one message appears which requests ActiveX controls for Skype. The message is:

One or more ActiveX controls could not be displayed because either:
1. your current security settings prohibit running ActiveX controls on this page.
2. you have blocked a publisher of one of the controls. As a result, the page may not display correctly.

To fix this issue, you need to enable ActiveX. Since Skype depends heavily on Internet Explorer, it uses its settings to work correctly. Go to Control Panel and access Internet Options. Navigate to the Advanced tab and click the Reset buttons. Restart the browser and Skype then will try to use it normally.
