Choose which ActiveX controls to run and help protect your computer from risky controls with ActiveX Filtering

ActiveX is a technology that's embedded into many of the top websites to enrich your browsing experience. It can be used for things like playing videos, displaying animations, and viewing certain kinds of files. However, ActiveX can also pose security risks and slow down your computer.

ActiveX Filtering in Internet Explorer can help you make an informed decision about every ActiveX control you run by giving you the ability to block ActiveX controls for all sites, and then turn them on for only the sites that you trust. This can help improve your protection against risky and unreliable ActiveX controls.
