Adobe Flash Player issue in IE8 on Windows 7

March 18, 2011 at 14:28:47
Specs: Win 7 64 bit, Intel Core i3 M330
Has anyone had success fixing an Adobe Flash Player issue in IE8 (doesn't work) on Windows 7 (64bit, w/o SP1, then installed SP1; Flash issue still exists) after removing a Browser Hijaacker? I've done all the troubleshooting per Adobe w/ flash player and M$ w/ IE8. Final straw was to install SP1 (didn't help either).

Flash works in Chrome tho'.

MOOOOooove! OH and you're welcome!

Are you trying the 64bit IE or the 32but IE (you have both you know)? The 32bit version of internet explorer works well with flash, but the 64bit has trouble with graphics, I think that most websites are not fully supporting it yet.

Did you try uninstalling flash and reinstalling it?
Look in Tools>Internet Properties>Security tab and see if your security tab in set too high (Med to Med High is normal).
Look in you browser add ons for anything that might be conflicting.

There was a Browser Hi-jacker on the system & probably some residual corruption from removing it, so I doubt IE9 would fix this issue from what I'm reading online. It was a customers laptop, didn't install IE9, ran out of time, she needed sys back. Appears to be a fairly common issue with IE8 & Flash, with issues going back to 2008 & longer. I hate Adobe - bloated, unsecure crap.

Google Chrome played Flash just fine. For the first time ever, I've switched my own default browser to Google Chrome (10.0.648.x) from IE7 & 8. Chrome has improved greatly from when it first came out.

My first choice is FireFox. I like the way Flash and Reader are add ons in a place the browser programmers left for it, rather than separate programs that are integrated with it. (I think Chrome is similar to this)

I use IE 8 almost exclusively and the only problem I have had with flash is from time to time it wants to update itself every time I open my browser I guess I am just lucky.

Likely
