    If you have antivirus and firewall software and you're sure your virisus and other "bugs" are gone, then you probably do need the active X component. You can read about active xon the microsoft home page - or on webopedia.com

    Ask a local pc networking group about active x - good luck

    Just reformat the pc with your windows disk. Save all the data you need to then pop the disk into the drive and follow the istructions. When it gets to the part where it asks you if you want to creat a partition say yes and make it about 5Gb in size. This will install the operating system to the one drive leaving the rest for safe data storage. In the event of needing to reformat again all your data will be saved. If this doesn't work your video card may have had it.
    Another alternative is to reinstall the video drivers for the video card. If you want any further clarification feel free to pm me
