How many ActiveX controls are there? And can QuickPlace and iNotes be forced to generate them?

In our public school we are migrating to iNotes from Notes Webmail. We also use QuickPlace as a "Webspace" for our teachers. Additionally, we use FoolProof, a desktop security software application that prevents unwanted changes from being made or saved to the C: drive.

The first time a user accesses QuickPlace or iNotes or when a server revision is made, the user is asked to accept an ActiveX control (or a plug-in, something to download). FoolProof will not allow this. Therefore, I must ask a technician to visit the PC and temporarily disable Foolproof to allow the download.

It would be very helpful to me to learn how many total controls there are potentially to be downloaded and how to "force" QP and iNotes to generate them so the technician can "do them all" in one visit to the PC. Can you help me? Thanks.
I am not sure as for the total number, but you should be able to find this out with five minutes of testing. Take a clean machine that has never used iNotes or QuickPlace. After visiting various URLs associated with your environment, you should have the controls on that machine. Based on that, you should be able to get them installed in one visit from a tech. If I was doing this, I would look to allow people to save certain controls to the machine. It has to be a pain for your tech to have to do this all of the time.
