Odd activeX control... thing.

Now, I recently found a rootkit on my computer, got it out, no trouble.

But I think that, maybe, a hacker got an activeX control on my computer through it.

When I access my homepage, a little yellow "activeX control" bar pops up, and says that my internet settings do not allow activeX controls that have been installed on my computer.

Now, here's the odd part. It only shows up on my homepage, and even then, maybe only half the time.

It's very confusing. ._.

If you wanna check my homepage for an ActiveX control, the URL is http://dsl.sbc.yahoo.com/

This has only started happening since a few days ago. I just want to make sure it's not a Webpage ActiveX control, before I bother sitting through the Malware Removal forum. : /

Thanks. :whistling:
