    Try this utility for blocking Flash in IE:
    http://www.bbshare.com/noflash

    or use this trick to block flash in IE!

    Create a file in Notepad called "disableflash.reg" with the 4 lines of text shown between the lines below.

    --------------------------------------------
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000}] "Compatibility Flags"=dword:00000400 --------------------------------------------

    Create a file in Notepad called "enableflash.reg" with the 3 lines of text shown between the lines below.

    --------------------------------------------
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000}] --------------------------------------------

    For disabling flash execute “disableflash.reg� and for enabling run “enableflash.reg�. You can make shortcuts to these files and then copy those into IE's Favorites menu, or Links toolbar. Now you've got an in-browser way to turn Flash on and off.

    Easiest method is to change to Firefox and install FlashBlock Extension or use Maxthon based on IE!

    Okie this may sound stupid and sort of untechnical.... uninstall the macro media flash player... its simple.. aint it.. and next time it offers to download it again.. jus decline the offer... i dont think there is any other need of the flash player other than internet.. so u can safely remove the prog......

    And sorry if i sound stupid... cause i never found any of my friends THIS MUCH against FLASH animations... coz thats the next best technology after htmls...

    Or as a temporary solution.. delete the file type .swf from the folder options\file types tab in the control panel .. and next time u wish to watch the animation point the flash files to open with a FLASH PLAYER...
