Macromedia flash web site loads halfway and then stops

I hope I'm in the right section.

I have a new computer so I had to reload Macromedia flash and shockwave.  I've never had a problem in the past.
I am trying to load a flash page and it only loads halfway.
I have tried it in both browsers, SeaMonkey (mozilla)  and Internet explorer.
I have disabled pop up blockers and enabled Javascript.
I went into SeaMonkey's Javascript console and I have lots of errors there.

I turned off "free download manager", Intel Audio, MSN messenger,trying to think of things that would affect both browsers.

Here's one of the Javascript Console errors:  
Error: Error in parsing value for property 'white-space'.  Declaration dropped.
Source File:
Line: 65

Anyway, the google page only loads halfway and then the browser says Done

Here's another error but this is for Expert's exchange website:

Error: Error in parsing value for property 'font-size'.  Declaration dropped.
Source File:
Line: 1005

    I would try IE again, but download the latest Flash player first. Set your security settings to low (just to test). If the file works, then  you'll know that it is something in the browser's config.

    Please configure your firewall/spyware and Internet Security properly.

    I turned off the firewall and it went further.
    I don't have any spyware software.

    I went into IE security and it is set at medium and will not change, so I added the site to "trusted sites".

    I've done everything that I can think of including tearing my hair out.

    I forgot to say that I have uninstalled and downloaded Flash about 3 times, Iammontoya.

    I have yet to come up with a solution for this.
    My macromedia flash appears to be working.
    I have seen posts where others are having the same problem.  It has been suggested that the particular connection is too slow to get thru the loading of flash.
    Still looking for suggestions!
