Cant get Flash to work

  livewire 18:20 28 Apr 2008

I wonder if anyone can help... its driving me crazy!!

No matter what I do I cant get flash to work inside IE. Flash objects appear as solid white and when I right click it says "Movie not loaded".

The installation is successful from the Adobe website and is also successful from the standalone installer. Flash works fine in Firefox but never in IE.

I can do a system restore and it works for about half an hour, but then it breaks again :(

I have no idea what more I can do!! :( :(

Any tips from the pros??

If you have SpywareBlaster.Under tools make sure that you do not have Flash Killer enabled.

Well ive figured it out!

I kept system restoring back and back and now it works... according to System restore the only change that I made was "Installed AVG 8"

Perhaps that is the culprit!!

Seems to be working OK now, altho I have no anti virus installed!

I'd rather forego Flash than browse without an AV.

Why not put back AVG 7.5
