Flash won't run with IE7 - Macromedia Flash Player

:confused; I am running IE7 and have "successfully" downloaded Flash 9 numerous times (according to the Adobe website) yet it doesn't run.

    Default Flash won't run with IE7

    :confused;

    I am running IE7 and have "successfully" downloaded Flash 9 numerous times
    (according to the Adobe website) yet it doesn't run. I can find no record of
    it on my pc and keep getting prompted by websites that I need to download Flash
    (particularly frustrating as my kids look over my shoulder wanting to get into
    Webkinz but I can't!!).

    Looking for help as to why. Do I need to change some IE setting or do
    something else to get it to run? The fact that I can't find any reference to
    Flash anywhere in my PC despite the successful download is particularly
    puzzling.

    Can you see the version number on this detection page?

    http://www.macromedia.com/software/flash/about/

    We have seen other reports regarding this specific site.

    Darren,

    I can see the version # as 9,0,115,0. It says its installed.

    Also, its not just Webkinz, I got the same message from the website of a local
    company (A123 Systems.com) which doesn't run correctly for me.

    Interestingly, Wedkinz runs OK with Netscape Navigator (my default)but A123's
    website prompts me to install Flash 9.

    Hi trey3man,

    If you can see the version 9.0.115.0 from this site:

    http://www.macromedia.com/software/flash/about/

    Flash Player is installed and working.

    I would check to see that your IE settings are appropriately set to play this
    specific site.

    Darren,

    Thanks for your help. I know you don't support IE or NN but I'm sure you have
    extensive knowledge of each particularly related to their interaction with
    Flash. Offhand, can you think of anything obvious that might be causing my
    problem?

    Thanks again.
