Change the installation folder of ActiveX control.

The downloaded ActiveX control makes a folder in Windows directory to install the ActiveX files. This tweak allows you to change the default installation location of these files.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000
The downloaded ActiveX control makes a folder in Windows directory i.e. Windows\Downloaded Program Files to install the ActiveX files. The ActiveX control makes “.ocx” and “.inf” files at this location. This tweak allows you to change the default installation location of these files.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. Now, create the String values “ActiveXCache” and “0” at the registry path at ordinal position 1 and 2 respectively. Then, right-click to change the values with new installation path.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.

NOTE:
If ActiveX files are stored on a network server, the performance of Internet Explorer may get reduced because the ActiveX files must run over the network.
