I need to stop this and can't:

Adobe Flash Player 9 ActiveX

I hate flash and flash ads. Other than the ads it serves no purpose on my computer. Before Adobe got their hands on it I wiped everything that had anything to do with Macromedia Flash Player but that no longer is effective against Adobe Flash Player 9 ActiveX.

This is just like MFP, it downloads and installs without warning or permission and every day it is on the add/remove programs list.

If I turn off activex x stuff then I lose a lot and or an forever wasting time being prompted to refuse it. I would like to block it once for all.

In the meantime I use No Flash 2.2

I'm another anti-Adobe anarchist! You could try an alternative - FoxIt - available free here. You want the pdf reader. Much, much faster, integrates with your browser, no bloat, no update nags, no superfluous junk.

I use the foxit in the event I need to look at a .pdf but I need to get rid of this Adobe Flash Player 9 ActiveX.

It is evil and serves no other purpose. If I shut off the signed and safe active x script thingy or whatever I am forever burdened with the prompt or I can't use many pages that use safe and signed activex for NON flash purposes.

It is a malignant conspiracy to have this Adobe Flash Player 9 ActiveX rigged up like that.

Why not just set them to prompt and not install the active x when it prompts you to?

The activex is so common. Either that or most of my haunts use it.
