Remember if you disable activex, it will in turn disable Flash, 
in-browser PDF viewing w/ Adobe Acrobat, Windows Update... Disabling 
activex totally (not just in the browser, but system-wide) would hose 
your system, but I don't think you can do that. Anyway, keep in mind 
that lots of stuff depends on ActiveX... not just the latest skiddie 
virii...
