an .ocx file is a Visual Basic control file. I guess this file has been used by whoever programmed your screensaver to use Macromedia Flash. I don't have the file on my computer, but I guess you could find it on the web if you looked hard enough.

I guess the easy thing to do is to change the screensaver to a different one.

I don't have it either, its an old(er) version of flash.ocx

According to this it should be:-

Note the path to the file. The path is typically:
C:\Windows\System\Macromed\Flash on Windows 95, 98 or WinME;
C:\WinNT\System32\Macromed\Flash on Windows NT or 2000;
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash on Windows XP.
