Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the
column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear
Webby Humor Letter.
This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly
because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

ActiveX is a format.
That format is used for a lot of good stuff,
but it is also abused quite a lot.
You can disable the use of that format in MSIE,
TOOLS, Internet Options, Advanced.
Make a note of which things you change, so that you can
change them back if you changed too many things at the
same time and get weird results.
It's usually quite safe to change things from ENABLE to
PROMPT. That way you are asked to authorize stuff
instead of it executing without your knowledge.
