Computers on my network are suddenly getting a message saying "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem with and add-on and needs to close"  The add-on running at the time is flash.ocx .   The browser closes.  Restarting and rebooting do not solve the problem.

Go to IE,  then Tools pull-down, Manage Add-ons

Scroll thru list and find flash.ocx,  select it, then select "Update ActiveX" if it will allow you to in the lower right.  If not, Disable it.  Click OK
