    Abobe Flash

    Hi,

    I have Vista Home Premium and IE7, with automatic updates enabled.

    However when I visit some sites such as www.liveleak.com I get the message
    "Adobe Flash 8 or higher required". Installing Flash 8, or 9 seams to go
    well and I am prompted to restart IE7 for it to be enabled. But the www
    sites still say I need to install Flash.

    Any help please?

    Regards
    Doug

    Are you using the 32-Bit or 64-Bit version of Internet Explorer 7?

    I just visited the LiveLeak site you mentioned (using both the 32-Bit and 64-Bit versions of IE 7) and I never got the message that Flash was required, when I was expecting it to come up with the 64 Bit version . . .

    Re: Abobe Flash

    Question. When you install Flash, do you do so manually, or are you responding to a popup message within the browser itself?

    And could you please give another example of such a flash-enabled site that produces this error. I never got this at LiveLeak, and cannot identify any flash content there anyway...
