Active X is required by some sites- Windows Update, driver updates for printers etc.

If you don't 100% trust the site that is asking you to install the Active X control, then don't.

Which site?

The site is called " pc pitstop" , it is suppose to carry out test and diagnostics on pc.

PCPitStop, as suggested by De Marcus™, is a bona fide website - I've used it for several years to keep tabs on my system's overall performance.
