    Hi I wonder if anybody else is having similar problems or has a solution. I
    have flash player installed on my PC however IE7 is not picking it up.
    Cannot find flash in manage add ons menu and I have re-installed IE7 and have
    downloaded flash again and it is still not working. Any solutions would be
    gratefully received.

    Actually there are ton of threads on this. "By Design" Microsoft has removed
    almost all of it's previous functionality in order to add the new tabbing
    system. Flash players and many standard addins no longer work. Microsofts
    answer for this is to disable and uninstall all addins and some how thing the
    internet is going to remove all multimedia. The best aswer for you is to
    uninstall ie7. You system will revert back to IE6 and things will all work
    again. However, in many cases services installed with ie7 and not uninstalled
    with the ie7 uninstaller will also cause problems. The only solution to this
    is to re-install service pack2. Make sure any time you are prompted about
    overwriting a file that is newer than the one in sp2 that you choose to
    overwrite the new file. Things like network connections and other problems
    will persist if you don't.

    The Solution to the Flash problem is:

    ""go to

    and then click on Download the Windows Flash Player 9 ActiveX control
    content debugger (for IE) (EXE, 1.18 MB) "

    To NetFodder:
    Pls log off the internet and never come back.
    Your solution to uninstall IE7 makes you look like a retarded newbie.

    Shockwave flash object shows and is enabled in my IE 7 addons. Works fine.

    Have you tried reinstalling flash player from
    note uncheck Yahoo toolbar if you don't want it.

    Ok maybe I was a bit too harsh.

    But.... you could atleast get your facts straight before you write 10 lines about the wrong

    I have the latest Shockwave - FlashPlayer and Java RTE

    I checked all these out by Playimg a few little Online Games - they all work
    perfectly well for me

    pps, not harsh I've been saying the same thing. The plane fact is EI7 is the
    biggest failure I've seen and before you go shooting to the wind I'm just
    some anti-ms religious fanatic go check the patent for the worlds largest
    network and you’ll see my name right there as the lead architect showing how
    to support 186.4 billion desktops under Active Directory (win2k not 2k3) and
    including every other ms product from SQL and SMS to using exchange 5.5 for
    multi-organizational hosting (pre-e2k). So before you start popping out
    statements like newbie do us a favor and learn to live life without the
    pampers pull-ups and maybe then we can have a conversation. Now why don't you
    do us a favor and stop kissing Dave Massy's butt and let's see if we can't
    help these poor people who have lost all of their productivity and get them
    back to using something where they can get their work done!

    Hey Jrosenfeld, can you do more than just tote, hey it works for me and maybe
    share the info on how you hacked the system to get it to work. Because You're
    the only one saying it works. Everyone else is have serious issues with it.
    The only answer we've gotten from Microsoft (at $35 a call) is exactly what I
    just mentioned.

    Lesley, if you are ABSOLUTELY sure you're willing to go through the
    headaches, the only method I've seen to work and it's not a 100% success for
    everyone is this:

    Uninstall IE7 and then also any other of the addins as well as shockwave and
    java. Do a reboot prior to doing anything else even if an uninstall doesn't
    ask for it. Then install IE7 and then the Flash and Java. Again, no promises
    but it's the only thing I've been able to get to work.

    oh BTW pps just to make this easy for you to understand,
    1. where in my answer was I giving him bad advice. Uninstalling IE7 has been
    the only answer given to us.
    2. How am I the retard newbie when my solution produces productive users and
    yours is something many people have tried with NO success (try reading a
    little before suggesting the same ol' thing)
    3. "log off the internet" What the hell, are you one of those idiots who
    still thinks the Internet comes on a floppy and is something to be put on
    your compootor -- hows that for harsh ;-)

    .... why on Earth should I want to Uninstall IE7 ? - as I said - my
    ShockWave- FlashPlayer and Java RTE work perfectly well - I have no problem
    with IE7 in this regard

    I was simply pointing out that problems with the above Software are not

    that is not the best answer. The best answer is to uninstall and
    reinstall flash from the adobe site. An uninstaller is listed there and
    the installer is on the same page. This has been successful for many
    people. Flash cannot just be reinstalled, it needs to be uninstalled first.

    I do support for internet explorer 7 and uninstalling and reinstalling
    has a high success rate. Flash add on is not disabled by design it
    just recognizes the settings differently, updates are needed.

    That answer should not have been given to you. There is a solution for
    almost every issue in Internet explorer 7. As I have mentioned before,
    I do support for the product, at 35 dollars a pop, as you have
    mentioned, and very rarely do I get an issue I cannot help resolve.
    Very rarely do I suggest an uninstall without intending to do a
    reinstall..................... I am sorry to say the technician you
    were speaking with was incorrect in his or her diagnosis..and
    solution.... Sorry for your troubles...............

    It did not work. I have tried everything but nothing does it. This has been a
    2 week headache. So I Have a solution of my own. DON"T Uninstall IE7. In fact
    don't ever open it again. Go to and download that browser.
    I have had it for over a year and have never ever had a problem with it.
    Acually the only reason I'm messing with IE7 is because of Messenger.
    Well I've had enough, So forget it I'm not going to worry with it anymore.

    THANK YOU!! :)

    I read the original problems and all other solutions and this solution
    solved my problem. I uninstalled the plug-in and reinstalled it and now I can
    access all the Flash sites that were not working.

    I am someone who has spent a whole day wasted uninstalling ie7 to find 1e6
    flash no longer worked, reloaded everything and all updates and now this fix
    on the Adobe site has fixed ie7 instantly - Why OH Why doesn't Adobe have a
    separate download for Flash for IE7 users that includes the fix????

    Thanks so much to the responder who gave the following!

    The Solution to the Flash problem is:
    I have been struggling with this for months and even resorted to using
    Firefox when necessary on certain sites...the above worked like a charm!

    Thanks ever so much,

    Are you suggesting uninstalling and reinstalling IE7 OR Flash Player? I am
    not clear on which one you suggest at the bottom of this post. Thanks.
