1. Disabling unsigned ActiveX controls is one of the recommended settings for IE. See footnote below.
2. Before running any kind of malware program, it is best to check for updates; most programs provide a tab or box you can click that will do this. If you get into the habit of manually checking, you can save yourself the money.
3. MS media player is just that; I didn't find any security options on the program.
