I recently purchased computer with Vista Home Premium. Flash player was working ok initially in IE7.
Now it does not work any more. I went through knowledge base and tried to follow some of the suggestion in the forum by right clicking on flashutil.exe and selecting run as administrator etc.
Still I am not able have the problem fixed. I tried downloading Firefox. Still the same issues.
My flash player version is 9.

"version is 9."  Could you be a bit more specific?  (Provide the point subversion numbers.)  I found this:

Did you go out to adobe and download and reinstall flash? That is what I would try first.

Uninstalling and Installing flash player worked finally. But for some odd reason my connection to www.adobe.com takes quite a long time on my vista browsers. This does not happend to any other web sites.

Adobe's website has flash stuff all over it. I wonder if that may have slowed it down. Is it slow now that you have reinstalled it?
