and then after clicking okay, the Error Report box, which then closes out Internet explorer. I usually keep two windows open and only the one with the flash site closes... it seems to happen with all flash sites i've checked. i tried uninstalling the flash activex control, and also disabled it. when i disabled it i could open the site with no problem, but obviously i would like to be able to use flash without problems. If anyone has come across this problem and has any suggestions for me it would be greatly appreciated... this is very frustrating.
