shame on you!

Have you ever been able to view online video's?

If so you can reset IE default setting and plugins and try again.

Dude had issues with this for ages on vista 64 bit.
I did this and it now works:
1 - uninstall flash player with adobes tool

2- reboot
3 - re install flash player 10 and plugin if needed.

Then should work

Thanks QEMS2

for your help but my issue got resolved by trying

Right-click C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil9d.exe
The letter changes with each Flash version, so may be "FlashUtilb.exe" or "FlashUtile.exe"
Select "Run as Administrator"
Follow the steps to complete the Flash Player installation
Restart  computer
