In the previous post, I mentioned about how to remove viruses from USB drives, Now I am discussing about the prevention of viruses while surfing the web.
Many web site’s use some type of ActiveX (a browser plugin that can have access to system) Control to install malicious code. Although the ActiveX control is not harmful at all.
Old versions of Internet Explorer that were present in version of Windows XP earlier than Service Pack 2 does not have the ability to protect you from that activeX plugin from being installed automatically. So, In Windows XP Service Pack 2 Microsoft added a newer version of Internet Explorer called Internet Exlporer 6 Service Pack 2.
