Active Agent Hacks

I've played with Microsoft Active Agent a half dozen times and now I'm starting to think there may be some exploit similar to the stealing keystrokes issue that Michael Z found. For those unfamiliar with Microsoft Agent: http://www.microsoft.com/msagent/using/userinterface.asp

Anyway, has anyone played around with it in IE7.0? It looks like ActiveX is complete disabled by default in IE7.0.

Sounds good, clearly they saw the security risks in it. A little late but alas.

Too bad in a way, because Active Agent always had a lot of promise from a usability perspective. It's just such a big download at 3-4 megs (might seem small these days, but 5-7 years ago that was huge).
