ActiveX controls can be seen as small programs that work over the internet through the browser. This program includes a customised application that is required to gather data, view select files and run animations when the user visit websites. They made it possible for text and other images as well as adverts to load when users visit any website.
You should also note that when you visit a website that is infected, ActiveX on that website can also contribute to downloading malware to your device. That is why you should never visit a website that you are not sure of its integrity.
