    Thanks a lot for this tip. I was searching for an add-on like this. I do not use Internet explorer very often. Of course you can block flash inside IE8, but it’s not very comfortable. Unfortunable the flash & picture switcher does not install in my default user account (only in admin account). But I do only surf the internet with an account with lower rights.
    Windows Vista/IE8

    regards heinz
