    Seems quite obvious, certain features are disabled on those college lab computers. Clearly, you have no business downloading and installing software on them.

      If the Lab IT guys have 1/2 a brain ActiveX is probably locked down completely...

        Eh, you still need a reality check, it seems.  Locking down Activex in a computer lab that's used by many students for many purposes is not dumb.  I don't know how smart the IT guys there are, but locking down Activex in such an environment looks smart, not dumb.

          Trying to and actually finding a way to get around set security is a good way to get in big trouble. It's best to follow the rules and play on your own time, not theirs.

          Do you actually think they aren't logging and/or can't see what your doing?
