What is ActiveX and why do you sometimes see error messages popping up telling you to update your add-ons? Active control X is a Microsoft add-on that helps Internet Explorer and other Windows programs run. If you're seeing error messages that won't let you load media or websites, you're already in trouble. Malware could be making its way to your computer because you haven't kept your add-ons up to date.
Not everyone uses Internet Explorer, but as many as nine out of ten computer users have Windows as their operating systems - and even Mac users can and do sometimes activate Windows. If you don't have these add-ons installed, your computer may not be running at its maximum potential. Common effects of out of date add-ons include:
…Or you may not even be aware of the problem!
The reason why add-ons frequently update has largely to do with malware. Spyware and viruses can slip quietly onto your computer in what are referred to as "drive-by downloads." You aren't actually actively saving a file; you're simply visiting a website and when media such as ads load, the malware is secretly embedded within. Test your add-ons frequently to make sure they're up to date and you won't have this problem.
