download and install Firefox from www.mozilla.org. That's another browser. Then install Flash into it. Might work.
Sometimes it's easier to use something that works than to find out why something else doesn't work.
I have a compaq c300ea laptop with xp media center 2005 installed, the problem i am having is on certain websites the flash player wont work even though it is installed, i am using ie7. Youtube and speedtest.net will work fine but the main site i wanted it to work on it doesnt. I buy my music from play.com but before i do i like to sample it but this requires the flash player, for some reason it wont work, below the front cover of an album there is a red circle that is meant to have a play button there but i cant see it, when i press it i just get a stop button and no sound.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and installing the standalone player but non of of that has worked, i have also looked at the security and the activex is enabled.
Can anyone help, it is really buggin me.
