Lately, I cannot view flash movies in IE7 as I had been able to up to a couple months ago. It says that I need to d/l the latest player. I had updated Flash Player not too long ago. All my setting in the Tools>Options are correct. I keep getting directed to install the latest version of Flash Player. Any clues? All runs fine in Safari. Thanks in advance for any help. Kirk

Hello again, arphot.
Click the little gear on the top bar (should be labeled Tools) and select "Internet Options"
Click the advanced tab.
At the bottom of the window there is a button for an IE reset ;)

READ THE WINDOWS! MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GETTING IN TO!

Good luck!

Monty, I uninstalled FP and can't get it to reinstall. This is weird cuz Safari plays the flash . . . hmmm. I didn't try the reset cuz I figured that I should try the lesser involved of the 2 suggestions 1st. I'm gonna take a breather here as this stuff is frustrating. I'll try again tomorrow. :huh:

Well, it turned out to be Microsoft Silverlight (the new experience beyond flash I guess) that was screwing with my FP. As soon as I uninstalled it, I got back the Flash on IE.
