Active X files
7/3/04, 8:07pm
This may not be news to some but here goes...I ran my spyware program and it came up with two Active x files that "could slow my browser down."

After lots of searching I found out where Active X files are stored and deleted these and now my browser is at least twice as fast loading.

Go to your C drive
Go to Windows
Go to Downloaded Programs
These are your Active X files
Right click on each...go to properties and you can tell from their origin if they are needed files or not. I found files from old programs I had tried a year ago.
You do need to be careful and not delete any that are questionable.

"Life's Journey is not to arrive at the grave
safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in
sideways, totally worn out, shouting..Holy Shit!!
What a Ride!!"
