Internet Explorer has blocked ... control in an unsafe manner

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Adam Pritchard, Sep 21, 2007.

  1. Recently, Flash has stopped rendering in Internet Explorer. I go to the Adobe
    site to reinstall Flash 9 and the first the information bar drops down and

    "This website wants to install the following add-on: 'Adobe Flash Player'
    from 'Adobe Systems Incorporated'. If you trust the website and the add-on
    and want to install it, click here..."

    That's fine, so I click "Install ActiveX control...". The page reloads and I
    am presented with a modal dialog with the title "Internet Explorer - Security
    Warning", so I click "Install".

    Flash appears to install, but then I get a second information bar drop down
    with the following message:

    "Internet Explorer has blocked this site from using an ActiveX control in an
    unsafe manner"

    I then try and visit other websites that contain flash and flash does not
    render, I usually receive a message telling me that I need to install/upgrade
    my flash player. For example, I visited and receive the
    following message:

    "You need to upgrade your Flash Player.
    FWA requires Macromedia Flash, version 7 or greater. Please click here to
    Or, if you're absolutely positive you have Flash 7 or greater, click here to
    force the site to load. "

    Does anybody have any idea what might be causing these problems?

  2. Hi,

    You might try Manually uninstalling Flash and then Manually re-installing

    Download the following two files to your Desktop, the first file is the
    Manual Flash Uninstaller, and the second file is the Manual Flash installer
    file for the latest version of Flash:

    Flash Uninstaller

    Flash Installer

    Close all instances of the Browser and any other program that might be using
    the Flash Player.
    Disable any third party real-time Security applications that might prevent
    writing to the Registry.
    Run the Uninstaller you downloaded to completely remove Flash from your
    Run the Installer to reinstall the latest version of Flash to your System.

    Good luck,
