Hi Guys,

Which was the patch or cumulative update that implemented the neccessity to click or press a key to invoke an activeX control on a website? one of my clients has the patch installed and they use webmail heavilly and it's annoying them, I'd like to remove this.  Also was it a server side patch or client side?

    If the above hotfix is not installed then you'll need to uninstall KBKB912812 at the client.  I had exactly this same problem and removing this hotfix fixed it.

    Good Luck,
