Disney ad crashing my computer

I have a thin client that runs XPe SP2. This morning, I used it to log in to FT. Whenever I went to a page with the annoying Disney ad with those cartoon ducks, it would crash Internet Explorer. My guess is either some kind of non-standard Javascript, an ActiveX control or non-standard Flash.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We will investigate immediately and take whatever corrective action necessary. If you run across this ad again, please take a screen shot and send it to me, assuming it's possible to do so before the browser crashes, of course

What version is your Flash Player on your thin client?

Not sure if this would help but a while back a similar problem happened to another FTer and me. flash6.ocx was the file to blame. I wasn't able to pinpoint the specific ad as you did though.

I believe it is Flash 6.

Quite honestly all the Disney ads are obnoxious due to the heavy, heavy use of flash. Whenever the Summer Fun Pass one opens in both panes it takes ~20-30 seconds before the posts in the thread show.

Might I suggest http://www.ie7pro.com/ ? Someone here recommended it and I haven't seen many ads since on any website.
