Disable Macromedia Flash plug in

The Flash player is necessary for many of those pop-up ads and graphics on the internet, particularly on many of Yahoo!'s webpages. To prevent these annoyances from appearing, do the following:

1. Ensure Internet Explorer is closed.

2. Determine your path to the flash plug-in (the plug-in will be a file whose name contains the word 'flash', and the extension .ocx) For most installations, it will be C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\swflash.ocx.

2. Unregister the plug-in by typing the following at the Start|Run prompt:

regsvr32 c:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\swflash.ocx /u


When you restart IE, most (if not all) of those pop-ups should cease to bother you.

Note:  Also remember that if you disable the flash plugin you will not be able to view any sites that primarily use flash for their site design.

    Says exactly what to do. And the average intelligent user should be able to figure out how to enable flash again.
