I have a Dell studio laptop (6 months ago top of the range)

Installed flash through the adobe website, but it is having problems playing flash, some web pages just will not show video.

could this be a security type question as my security settings are to high, or is it something else.

Windows 7

1. Do you have the latest version of Flash add-on installed? If not so, try to load it again from Adobe.
2. Do you encountered any update promotion when try to open webpage with flash file, if so, just click to update it.
