Hello UserCustomer first let me thank you for using Just Answer. I`m Joseph Amtmann and I`d like to support you to solve your PC problem.

What you describe, sounds like a problem with the IE security settings.
Initially you might try to reduce the security level just with the slider.

Another option is to try a different browser like Firefox or Chrome, to get your download work.

Good luck and best regards, Joseph.

Just tryed slider no good mate! ive been using explorer for three years without problem!(i like using explorer,ie i have other cctvs active on this site. ) someones got to tell explorer8 to let webrec.cab-- IN!! are you that person Joseph??
Expert:  Karls PC-WebHelp replied 6 years ago.
Hi, as IE is your favorite, lets have a look into the security settings.

open again EXTRAS - INTERNETOPTIONS and choose Security.
Now you click the button Security Level which opens a long list of settings.
Please search for the entry Execution of Active elements not used till now (or similar) and click Activate. Check for all other Active X settings to be activated. Save these settings.
Then try your setup again.

Another setting you can try:
Go to the site where you download webrec
Click on Tools>Internet Options>Security>Trusted Sites>click the button Sites>ADD
and it should put in the URL of this site.

Good luck, Joseph

Joseph, my friend! ive done all this basic stuff since november 09!!
Expert:  Karls PC-WebHelp replied 6 years ago.
Oh man, thats a long time !
So maybe you can give me some more hours to check something for you.
I run a surveillance camera in my shop (levelone) via LAN and will check for that specific settings, as I can view it in IE. (I`m not there wright now, will return to in about 10 hours)
And is webrec the only utility you can use?

Best regards, Joseph
