Removing an activeX control

Some times you may need to remove an activeX control from your machine. For example if your site uses Persits XUpload (or another active control) and a visitor downloads it they may not get the latest version if the component is updated later.

To work around this on XP you simply need to close all IE windows, navigate to C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files, and delete Persits Software XUpload (or the component you are having a problem with). When the vistor goes back to the site they will be prompted to reinstall the activeX which now will be the new version.
