    Making ActiveX available is up to the individual user as there are some security issues invloved.
    To activate it in IE click Tools > Internet Options then point to Security then Custom.
    You can check the box to allow Active X .

    Default Invalid ActiveX still unresolved

    I tried the security controls and it didn't work. :cry: I have checked somethings and they tell me that these things are not on my hard drive.

    Any other suggestions?

    ActiveX can also be blocked by firewalls such as Zone Alarm.
    ActiveX can be very tricky and exploitable so I suggest you read the article at http://www.help2go.com/article217.html and follow the steps.
    Post the suggested log as a new topic in the Spyware Help forum.
