browsing web sites

I have often visited the web site '' I have it bookmarked in my favourites list. For the last two days, if I try to access the site I only get a black screen with a white line outline and a small icon in the top left corner showing a tiny red square, a blue circle and a green triangle. All my other favourite sites work OK. Have you any idea what has happened or what I may have done wrong.

If you are using IE try using Firefox as a browser click here. It is good.

You need to install or re-install Macromedia Flash Player - click here
IF you have Spywareblaster, make sure the Flash blocker is not enabled (click Tools).

VoG and Splork, I've tried these and still no joy. Funny that this is the only site affected and friends have accessed the site with no problem.

Is the Flash ActiveX control enabled in IE Manage Add-ons window?

Hi all Problem is now cured. I un-installed flash player, accessed the site and was asked if I wanted flash player to be installed. I chose 'yes' this re-installed the program and I was able to access the site again. I admit I don't fully understand the logic of this but so what, it is working again. Thanks to all for help.
