With one of the boards I frequent specificly, there is a frequent problem with an error caused by ActiveX Flash 9 player, that causes IE to close. Its rather annoying, and I'm not sure exactly what is causing it. It will happen the odd time on different sites/pages as well, but by far the most frequent place is on a parenting board. What can I do to stop this from happening?

TIA :)

Hello, and welcome to Geeks To Go.
Why do you believe that the problem is being caused by the Active X flash 9?
To remove the active X flash 9 go here.
If you remove this and still have the same problem you may want to disable the Add-ons.
To do this, with IE open,
  • select tools
  • select manage Add-ons
  • folow the directions in the window to disable the Add-ons one at a time.
  • When the problem stops you will have just disabled the Add-on that is causing the problem.

As soon as I can get my kids to nap, I will follow your steps, thank you :)

A window will pop up saying that there is a problem caused by the following add on (I'll screenshot it next time if the message returns) that is a part of Flash9 or something.

Thank you again :) I haven't had the problem since, so I'll assume it is taken care of.
