How do I fix a problem that keeps saying: "Click to activate and use this control" for Flash Images on My Website

My website says that there is an error on page. It comes up like normal but all the flash graphics say either "Click to activate and use this control" or "Press Spacebar or Enter to use this control"; then some of the graphics won't even work. Is it something I did? If so, how do I fix this?

Thanks,

you have a pop-up blocker, preventing activex from starting.  disable the pop-up blocker on your site.

do you have MSN/ AOL/ Yahoo/Google toolbars?

Locate the Icon that say "PopUp", usually, if you click on this it ask you to allow popups

I turned off the pop-up blocker but it still says "Click to activate and use this control" for all my Flash Animations. Can it be something I did in Dreamweaver itself? Is something wrong with my server? Etc.

I would appreciate any and all ideas that you have...because I don't know what's going on. To see my problem, go to FrontierAIDS.org and try to click on my Flash animations.

I think it is your .fla animation.  make a blank page, insert the .swf file and post that link for us.

Here is the link to a blank page with my Virus swf file that I created for you -

http://www.frontieraids.org/Images/problempage.htm

I just created it like I normally would any page by inserting the flash file. Everything was working fine before, the flash animations just started doing this about two days ago and I can't figure out why. I'm sure its something I did while working on it, but I don't know what that could be. They've been up on the site for 3 months and then start asking me to "Click on them and stuff"; go figure...

Thanks guys,
