Have a weird situation where when some online training site is launched which displays its training in Flash, in Internet Explorer it just shows the left half of the flash video.
I've tried adjusting the zoom level to 100% or smaller in IE but it doesn't fix it.

Tried resetting all basic and advanced settings, clearing temp files, clearing Flash temp from control panel, etc, to no avail.


In Google Chrome, however, the flash displays just fine.

I have a picture here first of how it looks in IE
then in the second viewing it in Chrome of how it should be looking

Software versions on the system are:

Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
Internet Explorer 11.0.9600.16518
Adobe Flash Player 12 ActiveX 12.0.0.38
Adobe Flash Player 12 Plugin 12.0.0.43

Hi.

Your plugins are outdated. Please update flash for IE (activex) and retry. If that does not solve it, please retry on IE11 on win8/8.1.

Sign up first at

After that you will find a link in your email to the latest MSI.

Now use GPO to install the software throughout your domain.
