Flash and Director

I am always sent small exe files that are usually jokes and the about section says Flash 4.  I also like the animation splash screens for webpages and menu systems.  What can be used to write these?  Flash 4, can it make stand alone exe files?  What is Director used for?

you can download the trial version of the flash development from macromedia (http://www.macromedia.com).  this is a 30 day full version.  Flash is quite capable of making exe files.  Flash is pretty much just a scaled down version of director which has many, many uses.

Easy 100 for you ;)
Use export movie to export the flash file as a .sfw.  Open it using the shcockwave standalone player.  In the player, go to File create projector.  That will create the .exe file for you.
