How to remove ActiveX Add on from IE 7 (normal method does not work)

How to remove ActiveX Add on from IE 7 (normal method does not work)

"Does anybody know how to remove an ActiveX control from Internet Explorer 7.0 ?
I had been deleting and adding this control numerous times using the built in delete button in Tools, Manage Add-ons, Enable or Disable. This is required for me to test a downloader ActiveX used for a website. It had always shown up in the ""Downloaded ActiveX Controls (32 bit) section of the drop down which activates the delete button. However, all of a sudden it now appears under ""Add ons that have been used by Internet Explorer"" and I cannot delete it from there."

"When doing ANY kind of development that creates/removes/updates entries in the registry, be sure you use the (very excellent) CCLeaner. It will nicely remove any ""dangling"" references you (most certainly) have created in the registry ...
(yes there are other, but believe me this one you want to use)
