My website is having a problem at IE browser due to a small Flash animation. The problem is when I open my website in IE all the links stop working.

The same website works fine with Chrome, Firefox etc.

It works fine in my IE8

I'm using FF at the moment, but I tested your link in IE8. At first I saw a link to download and install the Flash Player instead of that map, but when I did that, (Adobe Flash Player plugin version, it worked fine.

That tells me that the problem is with settings or plugins in your IE8 browser.

Which links don't work for you, links in that map, or any other links in that web page?
