Question asked by VRFuser on Jul 21, 1999
Hello James,

     I think you can try the "ActiveX Manager" Shareware program to do

     ActiveX Manager provides a simple yet slick user interface that
            users to view registered controls, remove misbehaving controls,
register new                                          controls, and more.

     Find out this Shareware program you can go to
     and search it.

     good luck!

Best Regards,
Eric Lee
