I would unistall adobe flashplayer, then reinstall the most recent version. I would do the same thing with Java, unistall the current version then reinstall the most recent version. There seems to be a compatibility issue with windows 7 64bit systems with some versions of java and flashplayer. Note always unistall the older versions of Java before install the new version as the old versions are still installed even when you install a newer version.

Uninstalling flashplayer did the trick for me. Thanks! I had the problem on all new installed pcs from image, so this saves me a lot of time!

Well, actually its the auto installed Flash version I had a problem with, and not the one  that was on the image originally.

We had the same problem with our windows 7 image, once we updated the flashplayer and java, the problems went away and we created a new windows 7 image. There were some new windows updates we needed to encorperate in our new image anyway so it was worth creating the new image, since we put out new machines on a daily basis. As well some time we need to reimage a machine when a client's system becomes corrupted.
