ActiveX -object does not load/install

When I enter Windows Update, I get a message that I must install an
ActiveX-object in order to find out which components to update. BUT it does
not download and the usual yellow blocking toolbar does not appear under the
address bar.

So how do I get the ActiveX-object running?

Thanks,
Jens

Re: ActiveX -object does not load/install

Some 'thing' is preventing it from installing properly. Such a 'thing'
could be security software or malware.
You can download and install it from a Command Prompt by following the
steps laid out here:

However, if malware is causing the issue, then it may not allow the
Windows Update Agent to install. If that's the case, using Internet
Explorer, have the system scanned by the Kasperksy Online Scanner after
reading this tutorial:
