I downloaded a free Dungeon Siege screen saver from Microsoft home page.
After installing it, when I try to start the screen saver or go to Control
Panel and try to remove the program I get a

Error Widow that says "could not find the file (swFlash.ocx)". What to I do
the either remove or make it work?
Thanks

Hi Rick,

First instinct was to suggest installing Shockwave Flash, however
after some quick Googling, I found this solution:
"Copying an old swflash.ocx to C:windows\system32\Macromed\Flash worked. "

To find your old swflash file Rick, use the Start / Search function.
Let me know if you have any problems! :-)

Thanks Jimmy, I found the file in the same folder the other people found it
in on the link you gave me. I then copied it to the folder you said. Thanks
again
