However, the problem occurs because the ADODB.Stream object can also write data to disk. To help protect you from a malicious Web site that may use this object to load viruses or to load other files to your computer, the Microsoft Internet Explorer team set a registry key that prevents the ADODB.Stream object from running in Internet Explorer. This registry key is part of a critical update that was distributed on July 3, 2004.
