Well ActiveX shouldn't be it as it's useless for any browser except Microsoft Internet Explorer, hence it's limited use since over 20% of Internet users use Firefox or some other browser, plus it has a reputation for being used for malicious intents.

Took a look at that photo Jahk provided, it's definitely IE8 being used (Web Slice Gallery wasn't introduced until IE8) and AVG scanning although the virus alert itself is saying that ActiveX is involved, although I not aware of any ActiveX even being used on the website.

Some say he has a long signature and long posts, all we know is he's called X_Racer1.
