My internet explorer hasn’t been displaying Flash multimedia since IE6… now I’ve upgraded, still no Flash!!

I’ve tried using fixes provided to me on tech forums, and nothing works. I’ve used Registry cleaners to detect problems in the registry with the install, both after uninstallation using the flash uninstaller, and with it installed post-reinstallation. I’ve tried installing Flash with every program closed, I’ve tried retsarting ad-nauseum… nothing works!!!!!

Now, Flash is no longer displaying in my Yahoo Messenger either, which is affecting my ability to use plugins. No one seems to have any idea what the problem is.

Firefox displays flash PERFECTLY.

I’m running Windows XP w SP2, IE7, the latest Firefox, and Yahoo Messenger 8.1.

Active X Settings are set to allow in IE.

I believe this problem is influencing the way Flash displays in Yahoo Messenger, as well.

Answer:

Look at your security settings and allow active x in your browser.

    Got to FireFOx. It is much better and helps protect against Spyware etc.

    Download the Flash Player Uninstaller here:

    Shut down your browser, then run the Flash Uninstaller. Go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall Java.
    Reboot, then go to http://www.java.com to install the latest Java runtime and http://www.adobe.com to install the latest flash player.
    Reboot, If you still keep getting the message, go to Control Panel > Internet Options, Advanced tab, and click on “Restore advanced defaults”, then restart your browser.
