Many thanks to tolkien
Here is a full detailed solution with screen shots to view the webcam with windows vista
Go to "Tools" - "Internet Options" - "Security" tab - then uncheck the "Enable Protected Mode" box if checked like the picture below
Click Apply you will get this message
Click "OK" (don't worry we will put this setting back after installing the activex control)
Click on "Trusted Sites" Click on "Sites" untick "Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone" and add "http://www.losgigantes.com
" to trusted sites list.
Click "Close" to close the Trusted Sites window
Now click "Ok" to save and close the Internet Options window
Ok now we have to log on using the administrator profile (not a profile with admin privileges, but the one Microsoft set up called 'administrator'.
To do this the best way I found was to start up in safe mode with Networking (Thanks to orange for this info)
Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
Click the Start button
and click the arrow next to the Lock button
, and click Restart. You will need to press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts.
You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the safe mode option "safe mode with Networking", and then press ENTER. Wait for it to load
Ok now open Internet Explorer and navigate to http://www.losgigantes.com/webcam/webcam.html
Now right click on the yellow bar at the top
Click "Installation Blocked" - "Install Activex Control" then you should see this window below
Click on "Install" you should see this window below
Click "Unblock" then you should be able to view the webcam image on the page.
Now Go to "Tools" - "Internet Options" - "Security" tab - the Security tab will still be on Trusted Sites we now need it to be on "Internet" then check the protected mode box click "Apply" and "Ok" close internet explorer and restart your machine.
Now you should be able to view the webcam page without any problems.
