Unable to play desired media after geting updates

Mar 16, 2009 12:08 PM

Up until a few days ago I was happily able to watch video clips on the BBC website. Since, I am advised I no longer have the required version of flash media player. I follow the link to install the required version (have done this mutlitple times now) and Version 10,0,22,87 has been installed successfully. After reboots and many attempts to watch the video on BBC I still get advised I no longer have the required version. So I have gone straight to Adobe updates directly and installed v11. This still didn't work. So I have re-installed Version 10,0,22,87 as directed via the links given in the BBC site again and still cannot watch the media. Can anyone advise what I am doing wrong? I follow the links, install the updpates, restart (even though this is not prompted) but still cannto play news items. I run windows XP with internet Explorer 7.0 so am installing for correct operating system.

    Is it the Flash Player or Shockwave Player you are having difficulty with?

    FWIW: when I look in my Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs dialog I
    see "Adobe Flash Player 10 Plugin" listed and when I "Click here for
    support information" the version is If I click "Adobe Flash
    Player ActiveX" (which I assume is what IE uses) the version is
