Don't know if it is the same...I didn't download it. http://www.spywareguide.com/blockfile.php Quote from website... "Tired of all that Spyware and Adware crap being installed by ActiveX ? But don't want to loose out on functionality? We have created a system that blocks all known "bad" ActiveX controls from running inside Internet Explorer by setting the "Kill bit". When a page tries to install a component from our list, it will fail. When a page tries to use a component from our list that was already present on your system, it will fail too! Other, "friendly" components are not affected. Download and Installation The best part of it is that we can pull this off without any programs running on your Pc, without even having to run a program to install the block list! All you need to down is download the -small- registry file below (Right-Click, choose "Save As...") and then double click it to enter it into the registry and activate the protection."
