I am having a slightly annoying problem with web pages.
I have only seen it on certain peoples "MySpace" pages so far but if I go to a page n' it will start to
load and a lil box will come up that says "Click ok to run Active X control" or somethign to that effect, but
when I click "OK" the page freezes for a second or so n' then an error thing comes up saying the page has
to close n' asks if I want to send a report. If I click the X on the box instead of clicking "OK" to run the active X whatever, it does the same thing. What could be the problem? =/

It could be an unsigned, possibly malicious Active X control that violates your settings in Internet Explorer or your settings may exclude it because they may be too stringent, but if it's in Myspace I'd bet on the first.

You can adjust your Active X settings to allow all Active X controls to be installed and allowed but I wouldn't suggest it.

I've just gotten rid of bunches of malware n' spyware n' other
annoying infections on my 6month old computer so I won't take the chance, I was just curious as to why this was happening.
Thank you for your help.
