Active X Protection

SpyHunter also includes advanced ActiveX blocking capabilities.

An ActiveX control is an object that is often utilized to extend different functionalities to Internet Explorer. These include browser toolbars, document viewer plugins, and a wide array of other add-ons. Many ActiveX controls are actually beneficial, but malicious programs frequently use ActiveX controls in order to embed themselves on your system through browser security exploits or compromised security settings.

SpyHunter's definition database contains a comprehensive list of malicious ActiveX objects, which will be automatically loaded to the blocked list. This file is updated continuously by our definitions team.
