I'm not sure why this is happening but recently the flash
player stopped woring with some instances of flash content but not
others. For instance, I can't view the flash content on the
Adobe.com home page but if I go to the Adobe Studio home page the
flash content works just fine. I have no idea what's causing this
problem or where to begin fixing it. I can't even view teh Flash
Player advanced settings because they require flash. Anyone else
having trouble like this with IE7?
I have noticed the same thing. IE6 displays just fine but IE7
does not. By Reviewing SWF pages within the same web site some
display properly and others indicate there is a error when viewing
in IE7. Any help would be appreciated.
After reading this thread and still using IE6 - i upgraded to
IE7 and it installed without a hitch -
tested several flash sites and they all worked fine - it has
to be something system-specific -
maybe a popup blocker of some kind?

I agree that system configurations and installed software
differences are likely culprits. Last week I upgraded my laptop
from IE6 to IE7, shutting down all apps and disabling virus and
spyware stuff. No problems seeing Flash player stuff.
However, Monday morning I got a pop-up message on my desktop
from Microsoft that an important upgrade was waiting... click here
to install upgrade. Not knowing why the "auto update" feature
didn't kick in, I did the sheep thing and just followed
instructions - "click to upgrade". I had several programs open on
my desktop (PhotoShop, Flash 8, MS Office, 3 browsers, etc), along
with my "High" security level of virus suite protection. Then I
discovered I was upgrading to IE7 - not what I wanted to do just
then, but oh well.
When the upgrade was completed, I discovered some sites did
not display Flash content! Now, I have no idea which of the 95
processes shown in the Task Manager could have been responsible,
but I doubt that it was Flash Player 9.
I think my system and Registry stuff is pretty clean, at
least better than the average PC user. Yet, I had a problem.
Interference caused by something, and all without any warning
I will never know the cause of this problem, only that an
uninstall and re-install from Adobe and all was well.
