That's more secure than what I buy at the store.

When sir, was the last time you walked into a store and every time you
looked at a package it automatically installed itself and ran ?

The actual answer: the last time I bought a CD-ROM based package. Take a
look at "autorun.inf" on a CD-ROM.

ActiveX controls from a software vendor only automatically run if you
have previously stated that you are willing to automatically run any
signed code from that software vendor.
