Selective enabling of add ons

    It would be nice if IE would allow me to enable add-ons for certain web
    pages. For example, I need flash installed to access my Bank. But I get
    annoyed by all the flash-based ads on other websites. I would like to enable
    flash for my Bank & youtube only.

    Method 1.

    Tools>Manage Addons, Select "Downloaded controls" from the Show dropdown,

    Select your Shockwave Flash object.

    Double-click it to show the properties dialog.

    'Remove all sites' will remove the add-on from all websites. 'Allow on all
    sites' will allow the control to run on all websites.

    Method 2.

    Turn on IE8's Inprivate Filtering and use the "Choose content to block" to
    manage third-party content on the pages you visit. Most Flash animations are
    hosted by third-parties. You can block the content streamed by them.

    Why is a secure Bank site placing Flash on their secure pages?

    Problem: There are 3 versions of 'Flash' floating about (3 separate
    CLSID's), some XP machines may come with an old version pre-installed. This
    version does not show in the IE Addons Manager.

    Regards.

    IE7Pro works on IE8 also.
    You can block anything you want on any sites you visit.
    Ads, Flash, etc......
