Blocked out-of-date ActiveX controls

Important

The Internet Explorer 11 desktop application is retired and out of support as of June 15, 2022 for certain versions of Windows 10.

You can still access older, legacy sites that require Internet Explorer with Internet Explorer mode in Microsoft Edge. Learn how.

The Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will progressively redirect to the faster, more secure Microsoft Edge browser, and will ultimately be disabled via Windows Update. Disable IE today.

ActiveX controls are small apps that let websites provide content, like videos and games, and let you interact with content, like toolbars. Unfortunately, because many ActiveX controls aren't automatically updated, they can become outdated as new versions are released. It's very important that you keep your ActiveX controls up to date because malicious software (or malware) can target security flaws in outdated controls, damaging your computer by collecting info from it, installing unwanted software, or by letting someone else control it remotely. To help avoid this situation, Internet Explorer includes a security feature called out-of-date ActiveX control blocking.

We'll periodically update this page with new ActiveX controls blocked by this feature. We'll typically provide one month's advance notice before adding new controls to the list.

You will receive a notification if a webpage tries to load one of the following of ActiveX control versions:
