Ok Active X is something that sometimes runs in IE mostly that can acess your computer for bad purposes but also helpful purposes. For example nearly all chat rooms that I know of use Active X.

Have you been experiencing anything strange lately of before ?

after i read your first post i went looking for active x on my computer, and i have found something called cult3d active x, and i checked the status of it and it was "damaged" so i deleted it from my computer yesterday thinking it was already damaged and by deleting it i could not cause more trouble

Only problem i've been experiencing lately was the problem i pointed out before...

Was it mistake do delete it, and should i download it and install again???

According to Google cult3d has nothing to do with chat.

Does it happen in all chats or specific chats ?

it happens in all chatrooms, the same moment i try to open the webpage where you need to enter your nick to get into the chatroom, all the windows that are open in the webbrowser immediately shut down

If you're using Firefox for a chat window, those will likely use Java for it. Seems you have Java alright, but it would be good to update it though..

1. Click Start > Control Panel.

2. Double-click the Java icon (coffee cup) in the control panel. It will say "Java Plug-in" under the icon - please find the update button or tab in that Java control panel. Update your Java, and reboot.

Do you have Service Pack 1 or 2?

Is your version of IE 6.0 or older?
