Well yes there is. Stop using Internet Explorer or turn off ActiveX. Actually if you want to browse this is just one of those little pains you have to put up with to stay safe. Usually after the ActiveX component is installed that bar should not come back up for that particular ActiveX component. You also can try Firefox Browser but even that has its bar that opens for things to be installed.

Thank you for the news blurb it was a great one. This is not the problem he was talking about, I believe he is talking about the yellow bar that pops up asking to have ActiveX installed but this new article might cause a similar popup so we have the best of both worlds.

Thank you medab1

what yellow bar thor? hmm it doesn't really ask me to install, it just asks me to click the "OK" button so the activeX thingy would activate. something like "click the activex button to activate and use this control"

And before you download any Active X components, it would be a good idea to make sure you have Spyware Blaster installed so that you don't download any bad ones by mistake.
