IE7 and flash player

    I've just installed Vista Home Premium--full version, clean install not an
    upgrade--and something has come up which has me baffled. After installing
    all my usual programs--Office 2007, Adobe Acrobat 8, Zinio Reader, Repligo,
    Mobipocket and I've tried both AVG and Avast for anti virus as I thought one
    of them might be the problem--but there seems to be a problem with IE7...I
    go to a web site which requires flash and get the prompt that I need to
    install flash player and I do. It shows that it's installed when I check
    the control panel but when I re-open IE7 and go to the site, I still get the
    prompt that I need to install flash player. I've tried uninstalling and
    reinstalling with both of the aforementioned AV programs, with them turned
    off, and have tried downloading the flash player in zipped format and
    installing it with IE7 closed.

    The bottom line is, I'm out of neophyte guesses as I think I've tried every
    conceivable method to make it work. So, I'm posting here as there doesn't
    seem to be an English IE7 specific group. I've listed all of my installed
    programs just in case there's some sort of conflict with one of them. I
    should mention all of these worked just fine with IE7 when I was running XP.

    Any thoughts, anyone?

    Fantastic...worked like a charm. I just wonder why I couldn't find this on
    their site. I found a set of instructions regarding removing it but it was
    via my control panel. Then, I found their zipped version and, as they
    suggested, ran it but without any luck.

    Anyway, thanks so much for the URL. As I said, it's now working like a
    charm and my possible regrets over moving to Vista are somewhat lower. :)
