Windows XP Home SP3
Internet Explorer 8

When visiting my companies OWA site on this particular machine I get an Active X prompt to "install mime edit binary behaviour". Once this installs I can no longer right click within the email, and when I type the letters type backward.. (drawkcab)

If I ignore the Active X everything seems to work fine. I have gone to internet options>security>Custom level> and disabled active X prompting. It still comes up. I have reset IE and deleted personal data. I have also removed all add ons from the add on section of IE. Tools>manage add ons> Show all add ons.

Is there a way to disable that prompt? Am I still infected? Combofix found a ton, rkill and malwarebytes removed a few infections as well, but it seems I am missing a step somewhere. That active x doesnt prompt on any of my other machines. My downloads folder is showing as empty, and anytime I download something it disappears.

Thank you.
