bah, rubbish.

just disable the automatic installation of activex -- a good idea to begin

tools > internet options

click on security tab

select "internet" zone

click "custom level" button

check "prompt" for "download signed activex controls"

check "prompt" or "disable" for "download unsigned activex controls"

problem solved (along with other potential problems)
