How do I get rid of pop up tool bar?

  1. Over the last 2 days whenever I go to a site I get a tool bar saying:

    This site might require the following ActiveX control:'Flash Player 8' from 'Macromedia Inc.'. Click here to install...

    It is very annoying, how do I remove this?
  2. click the bar and install it

    Ahh yes, the "Enable advertising on my PC" virus, aka Flash.

    Here's what I've done, and it's working very well:

    Use Firefox for my day to day browsing, but without Flash installed.

    Use Internet Explorer, with Flash installed, for the odd time that I really do want to view Flash on a website.
