3 items remaining Pages with FLASH files don't load completely

I'm developing a website that contains some flash. When the pages load the indicator bar says that they have not loaded completely, when in actuality they have. Usually it's (2 or 3 items remaining) It appears that many sites have used SWFObject (previously known as Flash Object)
http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flash/articles/swfobject.html
 to work around this problem. Does anyone know how to implement SWFObject or have a different solution for this problem?

My site is www.tease-teez.com/sexcited.htm

Ok, well I have 2 computers on which I'm having the same problem.  I purposefully am running an older version of flash in order to see what my customers see (in particular the non tech-savvy users). This problem most likely will not arise in browsers that have updated flash configurations. Adobe has addressed this problem here:

http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flash/articles/swfobject.html 

but I am having problems implementing the script on my page.

just had a look at the source code for your page and there is a file called flashspacer.gif that appears twice in the first block of "object" code for the swf movies

.gif files are not objects and this code is sure to be screwing up the loading on the browsers you are testing it with

the same thing occurs once in the next block of "object" code

in Dreamweaver's 'codeview' replace the whole page's html with this..
