I removed cntents of Windows\Downloaded Programs Files and got the very same problem as dcoumented in orignal question.

Then it is not downloaded yet and I recommend that, as it is not digitally signed or the signer is not trusted, you should not allow that ActiveX to run.

I go to IE9/Manage Add-ons/More Information.

P:er Attachment, the offending Add-On seem to be the one highlilghted.  However, the dialog box wil not allow me to delete it.

Did you install the Nuance PDF Professional to your machine? Now it seems that this piece of software tries to embed PDF documents to web browser.

Yes, I did install Nuance PDF Coverter Professional to my machine -- a year or so ago.  This application converts PDF documents to other formats like Word.  It did not cause Add-)n problems with IE 8.  I cannot remove the Add-On for Nuance PDF Professional.

Can I revert to IE 8?  How?
