How do I uninstall ActiveX controls? I have installed BitDefender's ActiveX control (BDSCANONLINE Control), but I installed it poorly. It asked me to replace a file with a newer one during installation, but I didn't and while running the scan, it freezes on startup (probably to do with my AX IE settings). I can only see IE8's option to disable, but not to remove it so I'm inclined to think that it was not installed correctly. Seeing as it was me who installed it, I should be able to remove it. It's located in C:\Windows\BDOSCAN8. Can I just delete the entire folder and restart? I've used Spybot to see whether its listed under ActiveX or BHO, but it doesn't seem to be. I can only see it in IE8's Add-On Manager.
Instead of uninstalling it, I'd really just like to re-download the latest BitDefender ActiveX control. Is there a program similar to Xcavator 2.0 that removed ActiveX content from previous IE versions?
Anyone know how to remove the control through the registry?
