The combination of options for viewing ActiveX controls includes:
- List all ActiveX controls including those not used by Internet Explorer
- Only view ActiveX controls used by Internet Explorer
- Toggle non-Microsoft ActiveX controls on/off.
After the vulnerability has been patched, reverse the process to enable the ActiveX control.
WinPatrol will also monitor your system and let you know when new ActiveX components try to make their home on your system. If it’s not something you wanted WinPatrol will kill the new component before it can do any damage.
