Windows 7: Performance Monitor error

Performance Monitor error

Everytime I try to access Performance Monitor (a really handy feature) I get an ActiveX error... Can't find anything for it. Error is:

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

I believe the error is the culprit to another problem. After I generate a system health report, none of the menus in the actual report are clickable. The icon will change when my cursor is over it, like it would work, but clicking does nothing.

Windows 7, Just installed SP1. Let me know if further details are needed (i am somewhat tech savvy)

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate: x64 (SP1)


I'd try running sfc /scannow in your command prompt if you haven't tried.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Try also scanning your files using Malwarebytes. It's defiantly one of the best software for cleaning worms, corrupt files etc. We used to suggest people to run a full scan here on SevenForums.

Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download

If non of this worked, try restore your system to a few days, or where it started to happen.
