I am trying to send compressed photos as attachments to my hotmail e-mails. I am blocked from doing so because of ActiveX. This problem has only started recently and the only downloads to my computer have been from recognised and trusted sources. Is it possible to find where in the system this ActiveX control is and how can I remove it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There are some possible solutions:

If all of these fail, you could use another browser, like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome as a workaround. Both of these browsers do not support ActiveX.

Is this a problem you're having with internet explorer? You should probably just switch to a better browser like firefox or chrome.
