Activate ActiveX Filtering in IE9

ActiveX Filtering is a new feature available in IE9 and it is disable by default.

It allows a whitelist style protection scheme. When enabled NO ActiveX Controls are allowed to run, then when you go to a site that requires ActiveX Controls, if you trust the site you can add them to the whitelist. Only websites on the list will be able to run ActiveX Controls.

To enable ActiveX Filtering, go to Tools Menu>Safety and then select the ActiveX Filtering Option.
