I'm getting prompted to allow an ActiveX control whenever I try to upload documents to SharePoint. This is on IE9 RTM, running on Windows 7 64-bit. The error message is captured in the below image: The webpage wants to run the following add-on: 'Control name is not available' from 'Not Available'.
Does anyone know what this control is? I'm not in the habit of installing unknown ActiveX controls, particularly when they have a title as suspicious as this. Are the Office 365 controls not signed?
Thanks for the feedback.
It seems like a ActiveX control about Office Web Applications.I think it is safty and you may click the Allow button.Any information of ActiveX Control,you can check the link below.
Saw this today as well... didn't feel at risk so much as amused. That said I know that this does not meet UA guidelines for MS and so adding my 2¢ to say this should be considered as a bug.
