Screenshot of a Microsoft Windows ActiveX control security dialog. These dialogs are typically presented in Internet Explorer versions 4 through 6 SP1 when the user browses to a web site containing an ActiveX control that they do not already have installed. Windows XP with Service Pack 2, as well as Windows Vista employ a different method of requesting user action when an ActiveX control is asked to be installed.

This image demonstrates a relatively common tactic employed by malware to convince the user to install the software.
