Hi guys hope this does not seem a silly question. I went in the Microsoft office update site and was told I needed to down load Activex Control. I was under the impression that to have activex loaded was not a good idea security wise problems. I am probly wrong in my views about this but could some one confirm it is not a dangerous action.
