Here's another flash issue that I have. Once in a while (perhaps once out of every 10 or 20 times that I boot up this win-98 PC) I get this error message during boot-up:
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Program c:\windows\system\macromed\flash\flashutil32_11_6_602_171 plugin.exe
- pure virtual function call
With that error message still on-screen, I run CCTask and sure enough, the above-mentioned flash EXE file is one of the processes running on the computer. I open msconfig look at the startup list - and see no evidence that flash had somehow inserted itself into the list. I run regedit, and search the registry for all occurances of "flashutil32" and again I don't see how or why that program would have been running as part of the boot-up sequence.
I dismiss the error and I get one final error about flashutil32_11_6_602_171.exe causing an illegal function call in module FPB.TMP. I do a search and find 6 copies of that file, each in it's own serialized subdirectory in windows\temp. Feb 22, March 13, 21, 28, April 4, 11.
The files are all 468 kb in size, and appear to be .exe files. File info says:
Description: Adobe flash Player Helper 11.6.r602
File version: 11.6.602.171
