flash.ocx is part of Adobe flashplayer (used to be Macromedia).

Did you uninstall either one or stop any startup aps or processes from them?

In any case, you need to uninstall flash player, reboot and then reinstall it.

Obviously some ap in your computer is requiring it - possibly your screensaver or wallpaper if it is supposed to move or change.
