    Hello:

    I'm also having a problem with Flash. I can't get IE7 to display video
    previews of anything like files on YouTube, etc. I was told to download the
    latest version of Flash, which I did, and still nothing (everything works
    fine in Firefox). I think the problem is that there's so much security crap
    that's active by default in IE7 that the average user doesn't know what to
    enable or disable in the bewildering array of options that have to be
    selected. All I want is to be able to see the sites I'm on; with this version
    of IE, I spend all my time trying to allow things that the browser prohibits
    by default. It's like a flippin' video game, with the pop-ups and warnings.

    Any tips on using IE7 as an actual, functional browser? Or should I give up
    on IE altogether and stick with Firefox?

    Thanks.

  3. Try this: http://docxp.mvps.org/b1n/FlashRepair.exe
    If still no joy:
    Try uninstalling Macromedia Flash Player:

    Hello again:

    I tried all the links in Vincenzo's post: the repair had no effect, though
    it said "successful." I then uninstalled Flash and reinstalled it. No
    difference. This is especially frustrating since when I first downloaded IE7
    and had the same problem, downloading the latest version of Flash fixed it.

    Then, because of other issues in IE, I reverted to using Firefox as my
    default browser. When I came back to IE to try to make it function properly I
    once again selected IE as my default. That's when Flash seems to have taken a
    hike.

    Does anyone know if there are some obscure settings somewhere in the myriad
    cookie/security/zone/advanced dialogues that I can try? And can someone
    verify that IE7 is, as I suspect, actually designed to make smart people feel
    stupid and frustrated?

    Thanks.
