The article provides details on the symptoms, causes and ways to repair ActiveX errors.

Symptoms of ActiveX errors

Symptoms of ActiveX errors include application freezes and crashes with error messages that may or may not contain the word ActiveX. The crashes are often related to flash content on websites, as well as interactive features. The error message may have additional information that can help an IT professional locate the source of the problem and get it repaired.

Causes of ActiveX errors

When an ActiveX error occurs, it typically means that the Windows registry has some corrupt entries that are preventing the ActiveX plugin from operating properly. In pre-Windows 2000 systems ActiveX errors may also be caused by missing dll's, that could have been removed during software uninstalls. Software incompatibilities, use of outdated software versions and attempts to manually clean up or repair the Windows registry are also among common reasons for this error type.

Ways to repair ActiveX errors

Advanced PC users may be able to use the information provided in the error message and the error log to pinpoint the error cause and repair it by manually editing the Windows registry. However, since any manipulations with the registry always carry a risk of rendering the operating system unbootable, whenever a user is in any doubt of their technical skills or knowledge, they should only use special software that is meant to repair the Windows registry without requiring any special skills.
