Windows 7: Error using find album info in WMP 12

Error using find album info in WMP 12

If I right-click in WMP to "find album info" I receive an error stating that "automation server can't create object". You are also asked if you want to run the script anyway. If you select yes a window opens. The window has as an "address" but nothing happens.

I found an answer at
ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Automation Server can't create object.. The answer was from someone who signed the answer as a "Microsoft Contingent Staff Moderator."

The solution was to enable (from disabled) a portion of the Active X control in the Security portion of Internet options. (Please follow the url to the answer)

The solution worked. However, I began to recieve warning messages regarding my security settings. I assumed it was from the change I made. I reversed the setting. The "find album info" stopped working. The warning messages no longer appeared.

It seems rather contradictory that a solution to a problem for a Microsoft product is solved by a change in Active X internet security. This then produces a security warning which, as noted above, seems to be based on that change. Further, the error occurs when trying to access a website.
