ActiveX doesn't seem to load

I tried opening http://mywishlist2.mylifemycard.com/index.html?src=springoffers and the message, "This site requires the Flash 7 Plug-In." In the middle is the button labeled. "Download it here" and below it is, "If you already have Flash 7 installed, click here to launch the site."
In Explorer, under Tools/Manage Add-Ons, Macromedia's Shockwave Flash8b.ocx is enabled.
When I click "Download it here", the "Macromedia Successfully Installed" shows up in 1 second, telling me it didn't have to download at all. If I click on "If you already have Flash 7 installed", nothing happens. How do I get Flash to load properly so the page will display?

You should also ensure that your ActiveX options are set to enable in the Internet Zone (Tools-Internet Options-Security-Custom Level).  Ensure these ones are enabled:

Download Signed ActiveX Controls
Download UnSigned ActiveX Controls

(You can set the remaining 3 ActiveX Settings to Prompt or enable depending on your own security preferences).

If this still does not help then try reinstalling Flash. Download the installer, close Internet Explorer and then run the installer:


Hope this helps.
