According to Microsoft it could be one of two things

This issue can occur in the following situation:

•The page that you are trying to view is a Flash-enabled Web page.

•The Swflash.ocx file is damaged.
See here for more info (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q302461)

If you are using XP then you can always do a system restore - Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. This will take your OS back to a previously known good configuration.

From Google Groups.

Search for the file(swflash.ocx) on your hardrive and when you find it copy it to

Let us know how you get on.

Thanks very much, Phoebus Apollo, I did the system restore and I have been on the computer about an hour and had no error messages. I think the problem has been solved.
Many thanks Hippie
