Adobe Flash Player apps won't work on my Internet Explorer 7 browser.

All of my settings are positioned to allow flash and ActiveX. I downloaded Adobe Flash Player multiple times within Explorer. But heres the thing, I was having the same problem with my Firefox browser, but everything was fine after downloading Adobe Flash. I really don't want to use Firefox, I want to fix this problem with Explorer.

I know there is some issue with Microsoft and ActiveX, up until last week, I was promted to click the app to allow me to intereact with it, now I dont even get that far, all I get is a red 'X'.

Check to see if the add-on is disabled. I've seen this happen a couple of times, no idea what causes it. Tools > Manage Add-ons > Enable or Disable add-ons.

Hmm... Maybe try to add a site you are trying to view to the trusted zone? See if that helps.
Can you get any other plugins or ActiveX controls to work?

I don't have anything constructive to say as we have the same problem with one flash element out of like...20 that is doing the same thing. All the other ones are working fine. Please post your solution if you find one!
