Hello Chris,

I assume that you are using Windows XP!

First try insalling the Flash from the link below.

If it does not resolve the issue, you can follow the steps below to resolve the issue.


1. Please press the windows and the r keys together to get the Run window.
2. In the Open field, type: msconfig
3. Click OK. The System Configuration Utility window appears.
4. Click a startup tab to display a list of software applications and
settings that can be disabled.
5. Remove checkmarks to disable items except the items listed below:
* KBD
* Recguard
* PCHButton
* ehtray
* USB Storage RW
* Remind_XP
NOTE: Ignore the unavailable items
6. Click OK when finished.
7. Restart the computer for the changes to take effect.
After restarting put a checkmark next to " Do not Show this message again"
and click Ok on the System Configuration utility window displayed to inform
you about the changes made in the settings.

Good Luck!

I'm running windows 7 on a Toshiba L455 and I keep getting a prompt that says; can not find "flash.ocx"


Flash is a programming language that many publishers use to create animations, games, and interactive programs for the web. Flash is also used for programs run locally on a users computer. To use these Flash based programs and web applets, the end-user must have Flash Player installed. One component of Flash Player is a file called "flash.ocx." If this file is missing or damaged, you may get an error message.

There seems to be two root causes of this error. A description and solution for each follows:

  • You receive the error message "Cannot find the file flash.ocx" every time you start your computer or each time you open your web browser (such as Internet Explorer). This is usually the result of a missing "flash.ocx" file caused by an incomplete installation of Flash. Here's how to remedy the problem:
    1. Download the Flash Player uninstallrom Macromedia. Save it somewhere convenient.
    2. Run the downloaded program and allow it to finish.
    3. Once the uninstall completes, restart your computer.
    4. Visit the Flash Player website and download/install the latest Flash Player version.
    5. That's it!
  • You receive the error message "Cannot find the file flash.ocx" at seemingly random intervals or when starting a specific program (other than your web browser). First, perform steps 1-4 of the previous solution. This will insure you have the latest version of Flash Player installed. If you still receive the error message, continue with the steps below:
    1. Navigate to the folder "C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash\". In this folder you will see a file named "Flash9f.ocx".
    2. Make copy of the "Flash9f.ocx" file in the same folder as the original (copy the original, then paste the copied file into the same folder).
    3. Rename the newly made copy to "Flash.ocx".
    4. If the previous steps don't eradicate the error messages, change your screen saver to one of the defaults that are included with Windows (such as "3D Text").
if the problem still persist please let me know.

Is macromedia flash player necessary for opening of html files?


It's not necessary to have Flash to open an HTML file, that's the browser's job. But if there's Flash content on the page, it won't play without Flash installed. You'll probably see a placeholder image where the content would be displayed, and may see an error message.

When i insert quickbooks cd and click install it says error need to install flash 7 macromedia.


Depending on the version of QuickBooks you are installing, it may require the flash player for some of it's help functions. Typically, the flash player the program requires is included on the cd.
There can be instances where you already have a later version, but the program is not reognizing it. This may indicate that the Flash registry entries are not in the Windows registry properly, and the Macromedia Flash needs to be reinstalled.
If you have already installed the program once, and the Flash installed, you may get an error message about needing to install, or that it cannot install the files named ************. In this case, you may try ignoring through the message.
If worst comes to worst, explore the cd, copy the Qbooks folder to your desktop. Inside the folder, you will find the Install file and the installation should go through.

Error - Kernel32.dll


Microsoft defines Kernel32 errors as follows: "The Kernel32.dll file is a 32-bit dynamic link library file that is found in Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Millenium Edition (Me). The Kernel32.dll file handles memory management, input/output operations, and interrupts. When you start Windows, Kernel32.dll is loaded into a protected memory space so that other programs do not take over that memory space. On occasion, you may receive an invalid page fault (IPF) error message. This error message occurs when a program tries to access the Kernel32.dll protected memory space. Occasionally, the error message is caused by one particular program, and other times the error message is provoked by multiple files and programs."
