    Since doing the latest Windows update, I've noticed an annoying little thing
    that happens whenever I log onto a web site now:

    When I place the cursor/arrow over any link in the web site, I get an
    instruction saying, "Click to activate and use this feature"...or words to
    that effect. So, now I have to double click everything, and it's just
    ticking me off BIG time, mostly because it's making some web site features
    unusable.

    Can anyone tell me how I can turn off this annoying little feature?

    Someone told Bill Gates no and he didnt like it. So, you get to suffer.
    Search the internet for Microsoft, active X and lawsuits. You'll get the
    answer pretty quick.

    I tried your Internet search, Chuck, and it seems to me that it's up to the
    owner/operator of the web sites to fix the "problem" by installing some kind
    of patch. If I understand the situation correctly, there's nothing really
    that I can do about it, but will just have to hope the web site takes care of
    business...and the business community generally seems to be pretty annoyed
    about it.

    You won't be able to "deactivate" the changes after June 11 anyway, so
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917425/en-us isn't a real solution you
    should rely on.

    Bye,
