I have been using this flashplayer for a long time. However, since updating to IE 9 it no longer works as it should. First I had to download it each time after closing down the computer, which was just a minor nuisance. But now I cannot download it at all. The Flashplayer download page pops up, but then nothing happens any more; even the File Dialog Box box (run / save / cancel) does not appear. I have done just about everything I could think of, such as unchecking ActiveX Filtering, enabling scripting etc, but without getting any joy. Sometimes, though, I can download the flashplayer when I go to a different website that requires flashplayer - but only sometimes.

It works fine with Firefox though. HOwever, I am one of the few who prefer IE to Firefox.

Anyone with any good ideas?

Have you tried going to the advanced section under tools-options, and click reset? This will reset IE to its defaults.

Is your OS 32 or 64 bit and are getting the matching player?

I have used chrisd87 suggestion and it worked. BTW I have OS 32, and I did indeed try (in vain) to download the matching player.

Thank you very much for your effort.
