ActiveX Controls

I just had a really strange problem with the AxtiveX Control that I had in a Form. The controls suddenly stopped working and in addition I was not able to delete and insert a new control. If you have the same problem here is the quickest way to solve it.

Quit Excel

Start Windows/File Explorer

Select the system drive (usually C:)

Use the Search box to search for *.exd

Delete all the found files
