    I dont' know where PG would stop active x controls from being installed or to run, but you can setup your configuration in IE Security Options or in Firefox.

    Actualy I do have both to warn me first. The reason I mentioned it was using IE 7.0 I would get the little banner at IE top saying this page wants to install an active-x. Clicking on the banner and selecting more info NOT install gave a warning by all seeing eye saying a file and another dll were installed.
    Going to the same site with firefox only gives a flash warning.
    An active-x is an executable program like anything else isn't it?
    This could be an IE 7.0 bug too. It thinks a flash is an active-x LOL

    That's because Macromedia Shockwave Flash object is an ActiveX control :eek: ;)

    @ danny#12,

    I have moved your post that was unrelated to this problem and moved it to your ongoing thread you have started concerning this issue. Please follow the below link.

    That check box essentially controls whether you get the dialog "Application xyz wants to start" or "Application xyz has changed since you last ran it". With it checked you receive no dialogs for those events. You get windows errors about missing or invalid handles instead ;) It does not change the execution protections.
