When using IE8 to access certain sites (like farmville.com), I am advised I need to download the latest Adobe Flash Player for my Vista. I did that, and installed the Active X control when prompted, but still am receiving this error. I tried to downgrade to IE7, but that did not resolve the issue (which just started about 2 weeks ago). I just upgraded back to IE8 and still have the problem. What am I doing wrong? All my Internet Options are at default.
I tried removing Flash by itself, all Adobe programs, and all Adobe Programs and IE8, then reinstalled each one by one starting with IE. I am still experiencing this issue. Since it does not occur when using Firefox, I assume it is some security or privacy setting I have enabled, or disabled, but I cannot figure it out.
I also just recently received assistance in a recent BleepingComputer topic for problems with Windows Explorer crashing. That issue was resolved and I have continued, as I was before experiencing any issues, to scan my system regularly with:
Norton Security Suite (Antivirus, Firewall, etc.)
Spybot - S&D (manual scans, SD Resident, TeaTimer)
What else can I do to resolve this?
