Sounds like you may already be infected. There are many different things that will screw up your active x settings to the point where you cannot change them.... I would recommend posting in the malware forum.

Please go to the malware and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
