    If you have Windows XP, can't you just do that thing where you take the computer back to an earlier date?

    Btw, when I had a trojan horse recently that I absolutely could NOT get rid of, I downloaded Hijack This and it cleaned the computer right up of trojans, adware and spyware, etc.

    Good luck, kiddo!

    scanreg and use a previous registry backup.
    You have to enter the black land of DOS commands.

    Try this:type in dxdiag in 'run', this should bring up the control pannel for active X I think.

    If not, scanreg is executed in DOS, use restart in DOS, type scanreg after the cursor. hit enter,
    follow prompt untill it says do you want to select a previous backup? select earlier one, hit enter and the computer will go back into the win op sys.

    I have no idea if this is still in windows op (these DOS commands).

    SP2 disables activeX as a security measure you can go into IE settings with an open IE browser> tools > Internet Properties> Security then into custom levels or through Control Panel, set the activeX to your needs. No need to restore the prior settings.

    I hate when random sh*t like that happens. If TinMan's solution doesn't work, try downloading the movies to your PC and just watching from Windows Media Player.

    System Restore might be want you want, if re-enabling ActiveX seems to have no effect.

    Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

    If that doesn't help you, it'd be a good idea to run a virus scan (Norton is pretty good), as well as some spyware/adware cleanup:

    Hi565, if it's just an ActiveX control - rather than enabling them and risking all sorts of nasties - why not add 'drumking' to your list of trusted sites? Then ensure your trusted sites allow ActiveX controls.

    You can find all this in Internet Explorer, Tools, Internet Options, Security.

    Good luck!
