No it is random. I will try to log it for a day and see if we can figure it out.

Well random is a kind of improvement.. Also could you check as to whether it is a specific site causing this

Well, it is definately not a specific site. So far today flash has happened on Aveda.com, Facebook.com & Google.com.

Also keep getting the following Internet Explorer has stopped working (pop-up window)
"A problem caused the program to stop wprking correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

And

Data Execution message from Windows Help & Support popped up from bottom right.

OK next trick...

Go to control Panel > Programs and Features
In the top left select installed updates
Locate IE9 (probably near the bottom)
Uninstall IE9

Then Download a fresh copy of IE9 and install

Ok, I don't see IE9 anywhere. However, when I try to DL it does in fact say I have a newer version? So, not sure how to find and uninstall.

Failing that we will do a command line uninstall.. MS has a step by step guide here

IE 10 on Windows 7 Preview?

I will try updating now. I did want to let you know that I have been using firefox for the last 2 days without the flash. Will update on IE once update completes.
