I am trying to display stock charts from Investors Business Daily and it will not display the charts. It tells me that I need the equivalent of Active X and then it tells me that I need to configure my system to emulate a Windows 32 bit system and that I need 133Mgz o equivalent. The company refers to using a program Virtual PC to emulate Windows 32 bit system. Do I need to load this program or do I just need to make some changes to my OS configuration? I am running a new Mac Pro 8 core 3 Ghz system.
I also need to load MS Office on this. I saw a reference from some people stating that running 2007 Office profesional has vitual PC in it but that virtual PC is not needed on the intel Macs.
Can anyone clear up what I need to do.
Thanks
Gary

If you truly must have ActiveX then as far as I know you'll have to use Windows. You don't want Virtual PC - it doesn't work for Intel-based Macs. You can use something like Parallels, Fusion vmware, or Boot Camp itself to run Windows. The first two allow you to run Windows in a virtual machine environment - i.e., you can have Windows fully open and running while booted into Mac OS X. Boot Camp allows you to boot exclusively into Windows XP.

You could also try Parallels.
