What is it?

Description of mscomctl.ocx from Microsoft
A control is a child window that an application uses in conjunction with another window to enable user interaction. Controls are most often used within dialog boxes, but they can also be used in other windows. Controls within dialog boxes provide the user with a way to type text, choose options, and initiate actions. Controls in other windows provide a variety of services, such as letting the user choose commands, view status, and view and edit text.

How is mscomctl.ocx loaded?

Safe for scripting control - mscomctl.ocx has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {0B314611-2C19-4AB4-8513-A6EEA569D3C4} with and identifier of CLSID\{0B314611-2C19-4AB4-8513-A6EEA569D3C4}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95801-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. Safe for scripting is a Windows policy that disables the Internet Explorer security prompt for Windows Installer scripts. It allows Web-based programs to install software on the computer without notifying the user. By default, when a script hosted by an Internet browser tries to install a program on the system, the system warns users and allows them to select or refuse the installation. This setting suppresses the warning and allows the installation to proceed.
Safe for initializing control - mscomctl.ocx has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {1EFB6596-857C-11D1-B16A-00C0F0283628} with and identifier of CLSID\{1EFB6596-857C-11D1-B16A-00C0F0283628}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95802-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. When a program is initialized, it can receive data from another program for initializing its state. This is a potential security hazard because the data could come from an untrusted source. Programs that guarantee no security breach regardless of the data source are considered safe for initialization and are registered as such.
Automation object - mscomctl.ocx has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {1EFB6596-857C-11D1-B16A-00C0F0283628} with and identifier of CLSID\{1EFB6596-857C-11D1-B16A-00C0F0283628}\Implemented Categories\{40FC6ED5-2438-11CF-A3DB-080036F12502}. Automation objects are referred to as ActiveX objects.
ActiveX install - mscomctl.ocx has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {F09BFD07-20B5-46D8-A6D5-BE4EF22F1F4D}. ActiveX controls are sapplications that are used within Internet Explorer. They can enhance your browsing experience by allowing animation or they can help with tasks such as installing security updates at Microsoft Update. Some websites require you to install ActiveX controls to see the site or perform certain tasks on it.
