Thanks woodchip, so they are provided within the Microsoft updates then.

Which I always tell my friend to get.

Many thanks,

Other programs also use and load Active X if you let them. It's not always a good IDEA as your computer could be compromised

ok thanks, I've spoken with my friend and it seems that she can get onto the Myspace website but when she logs in she keeps getting a message saying she needs to update her ActiveX.

She also says that windows update is set to automatically update on her pc, so she has all of the updates.

I've asked her for the exact message she gets when she signs in.
