NOS Microsystems getPlus Active X Control 1.X comes up as being insecure in IE8 Browser with SAID # SA32546 even though it is fully patched. Need to know how to fix. The install path is- C:\\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\ gp.ocx

Removing ActiveX

Below are two solutions I have copied from the Forum that do work.

Windows XP

launch command prompt from accessories in the programs list
type: cd c:\windows\downloaded program files
press enter
type: dir
press enter
find the correct file in the list
type: del <name of correct file without these braces>
press enter
type: exit
press enter

Vista
Open Start/Search
type "Command Prompt" into the search window
A Command Prompt icon will display
Right click on it
select "Run as administrator"
type: cd c:\windows\downloaded program files
press enter
type: dir
press enter
find the correct file in the list
type: del <name of correct file without these braces>
press enter
type: exit
press enter
