The Macromedia Flash OCX is a small plug-in which renders the SWF movie on your system. The Flash OCX (also referred to as the Flash Player) is available free from Macromedia. Over 98% of Internet users have the Flash Plug-In installed.

unclick google toolbar if you dont want it

Go here and download and install Adobe Flash Player 9.0.45.0. This is a newly-released version to replace version 9.0.28.0.

Some websites require this program to be installed in order to properly view them, so it's considered one of the "must have" programs for your computer.

Click Start - Search - All Files And Folders, select the hard drive C: to look in, type in

*.ocx

then click Search. It'll display several .ocx files, including those for Adobe Flash Player, which are in the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MACROMED\FLASH folder.
