I do not run ActiveX and do not plan to install it on my XP Pro implementation.

Secunia solutions to the problems noted with Microsoft directs me to the Microsoft site that requires me to install and use ActiveX.

Since this is not acceptable for me, can you recommend any alternative way to update my system or do I have to remain somewhat vulnerable?

If you know which updates you require from Microsoft , then go to the download centre with a browser other than IE .

Loading ActiveX for MS updates only is not likely to put you at too much risk ; rather be safe than sorry over too rigid a guideline.


It always seems impossible until its done.
