    I am now getting a pop up when I search the web asking me to install Active X? Hubby tells me it's a virus?

    Anyone else seeing this?

    The hidden drive-by install scumbag affiliates and their BHO sponsors detect your browser has disabled ActiveX installs. Click that bugger and you'll get a nice adwarez surprise as it changes your security settings.

    BHO = Browser Helper Object = ActiveX Component that runs as an extension to Internet Explorer, but is allowed to write to any damn location on your hard disk = Security Risk = Parasite = Revenue Decline for Affiliates.

    Thanks Mike. Hubby mentioned that it was a drive by. With my ActiveX auto installs disabled now, I should be safe.
