Macromedia Flash Player is not working on my browser

by islandporgy / September 14, 2006 8:06 AM PDT

For some reason when I go to a certain site and it call for a flash player. It tells me need to install Macromedia Flash Player I do and it still does not work. I am now getting messages to install Active X.

Some off the other sites or working but not all, I get some to work and some does not work.
I went to Internet options were when I reinstall Windows I always make changes. So I set it back to default just in case that may be the reason for what is going on. Even though I have reinstalled Windows XP around 3 months ago and nothing was wrong until 9/13/06.
Need some help Please:
Wendell H

say which browser you are using.

Most websites that use Flash Player need scripting enabled for it to work. If the Flash player shows when you download it and install it, then it could be scripting and/or the website in question. In Mozilla Firefox, I have the extention NoScript. I need to tell it to temporarily allow scripting in the pages that use the flash player.

Hope this helps.
