pineconeresearch spyware - Google Search

I had spent a couple hours looking for a Pinecone Research Banner ad, but then started noticing how many people had spyware problems ALSO had some ActiveX component from PineCone installed. Now, I am not one to draw THAT kind of conclusion without testing the theory, but -- since I can't find the banner ad, how about a simple question?

If they email me a link, and I complete a survey, why do they need ActiveX installed on my machine?
