In IE7 is there a way to keep Flash turned off most of the time, but to still have the option to enable it when required?

This is only slightly relevant, but FlashBlock is one of my must-have add-ons for Firefox.

Flash seems to crash browsers more than anything else - best to keep it in check.

...and it helps protecting your privacy. What Flash-enabled sites has your computer visited since you bought it? Look at macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/… to see that list... –  Arjan Aug 21 '09 at 10:44
