Internet Explorer tweak made public

Can you say "SPIN"?

What this really is is a redo of how IE executes ActiveX controls to avoid infringing upon patents held by Eolas and the University of California. It's a court-ordered fix and there is no "tweak" to it, except maybe in a legal sense.

It's there if you want it. So far, no one is forcing you to take it and, frankly, I won't apply it unless I have to. I have ActiveX turned off in IE, except when I visit Windows Update, for security reasons.
