I just got rid of some spyware called xupiter that hijacks your home page among other things. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif From what I read on the web it installed itself thru ActiveX. Do I disable all ActiveX in my browser to prevent it from happening again? I thought my settings looked safe enough, several of them are set to "prompt". I suppose someone may have OK'ed the install not realizing what it was. If I disable all ActiveX, what types of things won't work?
