Problem with Flash in IE7 ?

Maybe your are experiencing this like me: Your IE7 do not show flash content from some websites, even with Flash Player 9 installed on your system, and everything working fine with IE6 or Firefox.

The fact is for some reasons IE7 corrupt Flash Plugin, in result flash detection on websites do not work. And if you try to click on one of the "upgrade Flash plugin" button the browser consider it is already installed.

Here is a solution:

  1. Close all open programs
  2. Run Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller
  3. Reinstall the Flash player


If this do not work you can also try :

Thanks for the insightful solution.   This has been driving me nuts, but your run as administrator solution has my flash plugin working as promised.

Now any solution to Adobe Reader in IE7?
