Have downloaded Adobe Flash Player 10 again but no use. Is there another flash player I can use.

What browser?
IE / FF security settings will be blocking the content.

Are you using IE Internet Explorer or FF Firefox?

turning off IE8 Protected Mode (Tools > Internet Options > Security > [ ] Enable Protected Mode) allows flash to work
