Recently I was at a used auto parts web site, Car-parts.com. I wanted to email one of the listed vendors and they required I down load active X before I could email a parts request. I don't know much about active X for instance what it is trying to accomplish. Is there any security concern after down loading Active X. How might it affect my computer or browser. If I need to, can I remove active X ?
Thanks for any information or wisdom from your own experiences. I am trying to get better educated about my computer and its use on the Internet; especially with all the spware, viruses, etc! I don't think its safe to ignore what is going on any more.
