It seems to go into a loop, one day I had flash on my IE but then it stopped working, now each time I get to page such as youtube, the active x control pops up i install it, it reloads the page after it installs, then same thing happens where it says i dont have it and the active x repops up again asking to install, so it just goes into a loop... by the way it works on firefox tho :flowers:


I took a screenshot of what I get after I install it, its either this screen

or it will just ask over and over again to install it.


Ive tried uninstalling IE from the windows components then reinstalling, didnt help, tried uninstalling the flash active x control and still didint help, tried changing the security settings on IE nothing :thumbsup:

I would try uninstalling Flash using the instructions at this page and then re-installing it.

Are there any security/tweaking programs installed that might be preventing flash from installing?

1) If you have an XP install disc and you are running IE6: In Explorer click Tools > Folder Options > View tab
In Advanced Settings make the radio button 'Show hidden files and folders' show a dot. Uncheck 'Hide protected operating system files'. Click OK. Open up an Explorer window and navigate to C:\WINDOWS\inf . Right-click on the file ie.inf and choose Install. There will be a popup asking you to load your XP install disc. Do so and IE6 will be reinstalled.

It's best to go back into Explorer and turn off those 2 file/folder visability options to avoid accidental deletions in the future.

2) Try installing or re-installing IE7.

You can uninstall IE7 from the Control Panel...Add/Remove Programs applet in XP
You can repair IE6 by uninstalling and reinstalling SP2 using the Control Panel...Add/Remove Programs applet in XP

If neither of these works, then I'd have to wonder what setting is causing this in your IE (since Firefox works). Try setting everything back to default (and running IE7 without add-ons).
