Good article but itself flawed, in respect of IE7 or later you can simply turn off or disable Java, ActiveX controls and .NET any or all depending on what is causing the problem, yes you may in a very rare case get infected and it would limit your browsing considerably, a lot of active or scripted content on web pages simply would not work or even show up.
I think it's a good topic and it would be nice if it generated a proper discussion on the subject.
Good find, well worth a read.
