    I've read the Winpatrol pages over and over and I'll be danged if I can
    figure out the difference, except maybe they mention access to some
    database or other.

    Also, why in the %$#@ do people with such helpful sites insist on my
    installing flash-crap before I can see all the information. Leave the
    flash-crap for kiddie and game sites.

    The only difference is access to their database which provides more
    in-depth descriptions of the malware, along with your choice to support
    continued development of their product. Flash (which is an ActiveX
    control) is not required to view their web site (all it does is add
    their animated banner).

    Ok. The problem with that flash-crap is that one doesn't have clue what
    one isn't seeing.

    Thanks for answering.

    In order to prevent web crawlers from walking across a web site to steal
    its structure and create an identical web site, some are now using Flash
    instead of HTML code to present menus and clickable objects. If they
    want to remain compatible and usable by visitors that don't have the
    Flash AX control installed then they need to provide a non-Flash version
    of their web site, but they won't if their point was to make it
    impossible to use (and steal) their web site unless you use their
    Flash-defined interface. So you might not like Flash but you will find
    some web sites where you won't be able to see or use them unless you
    have Flash installed.

    I take it you are using Firefox or have configured IE to disable ActiveX
    controls (of which Flash is one) and why you cannot use Flash to view a
    web site.
