    I just reformated my hard drive and am now having problems with an illegal operation concerning flash.ocx.

    I've tried uninstalling flash and reinstalling it but it didn't work. Maybe someone has another suggestion, if all else fails i'll have to reformat it again.

    After you uninstall Shockwave Flash, go into Find - Files And Folders, see if any FLASH.OCX or SWFLASH.OCX files are still there, then delete them.
