It's possible you have it installed but it may be an older version and the site needs the newest version to display properly. Let it install the newest version and see if that fixes the problem.

Plug-ins help web browsers perform extra tasks.

If you are using IE, then look in this folder
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\PLUGINS
For a file like this
NPSWF32.dll
That is the plugin file for Flash. If not, then IE will not do Flash. Have to install again.
My Flash plugin is in my Netscape browser.

Also, Most Virus and Spyware scans are likely to work better in Windows Safe-Mode.

Thanks, guys. I wasn't having much luck with anything, then I went into my programs and removed Adobe Flash player 10, then re-installed it. Working now. Thanks again.
