Tried This Yet?

First uninstall your current Flash by downloading and running the standalone Adobe Flash Uninstaller from the link below:

After that's done, then download the standalone installer for Internet Explorer from the link below:

(Please note, clicking on the links below will immediately bring up a download dialogue window.)

If you also have Firefox, Opera, or some other browser that doesn't support ActiveX, download the standalone installer from the link below and install it also.

Once that's done, then visit the site below using all your browsers, just to make sure Flash is working.. If it works correctly at the site below, showing "Successfully installed", then the other sites which request something different are incorrect.

Hope this helps.
