HOW TO disable Flash in IE7 and Firefox

There are tricks to disable pesky image ads & iframe ads but annoying Flash based ads are a different species.

When Flash starts to be a nuisance in IE7, you can easily disable it by going to Tools > Manage Add-ons > Enable or Disable Add-ons and in the dialog box that opens, select the Disable radio button in the Settings panel.

Firefox 3 is expected to have a way to view, disable, and enable plugins using the Add-ons manager (accessible from the Tools menu). Luckily we don't have to wait till it arrives. According to this MozillaZine KB article, you must close your browser and either remove the NPSWF32.dll file associated with Flash from your Mozilla application's plugins folder and place it in a backup location or rename the plugin file. To rename the plugin, add an "X" in front of the file name.

..the Flash plugin may also be located outside the browser's plugin folder.

The Flash plugin may be installed in the C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash folder, so check this location also, even if you've already disabled the Flash plugin by removing or renaming the file "NPSWF32.dll" in your Mozilla browser's plugins folder.
