If RealPlayer is your default player for the problem websites, it's possible that you need to uninstall, then reinstall the newest version..
IN addition, have you tried fully uninstalling Flash, then reinstalling it? If not, then follow the instructions below:
First, uninstall Flash by using the Flash Uninstaller at the link below..
After that's done, then download the manual Flash player installer from the link below.. Download it to your desktop and Run it to install the newest Flash for Internet Explorer. (Clicking on the link below will immediately bring up the download dialogue box.)
Once that's done, if you're also using Firefox, visit the site below while in Firefox, then download and run the Flash plugin installer
Hope this helps.

This is first post here so I'm sorry if I left out any important info. A few months ago I noticed that certain websites that have streaming audio aren't loading properly. For example, myspace, AOL music, and rhapsody. I've used these sites for a while but they all started giving me errors around the same time. On rhapsody, the Rhapsody Player Engine pops up and closes itself immediately when I click on a song. On myspace, the music player app isn't loaded at all. All I get is an animated myspace logo in it's place. On AOL music, when go the "Full CD Listening Parties" section, it doesn't load the music player and tells me that I don't have the latest version of Flash installed. I do have the newest version and I've reinstalled it many times. I've even tried older versions, no luck.
Even though I don't remember making any changes to my pc when this occured, I still tried disabling my ad/pop up blockers and accepting all cookies. Here's the strangest part though. I've been using IE7 so I tried FF and I got the same problem. Then I tried Chrome recently and on a fresh install with all the default settings, same problem. In all other cases, audio works fine. Playing files locally and even on video sites like youtube and google, no problems. I'm using XP SP3 and I have a Linksys router with no other firewall software installed. Can anyone give me an idea as to what could be causing this? Thanks.
