Flash 11 installed but not detected by websites

Can any body help?  I'm about to go postal here.  I am really hating Flash!  I'm trying to upgrade our computers because suddenly most websites quite working (saying we needed a newer version of Flash).  So round and round I go trying to get it working.


I finally gave up getting the stuipd thing to install with Group Policy Manager (there is a *major* problem with the .msi install package Adobe provides from V10 forward...even though it worked just dandy for 9 and down).  Instead, I moved to the Software Update Services route instead.


Now all of my computers have Flash 11 installed -- but half of them don't work!!!.  I can look in my logs and see "successful" install on all systems.  I can go into add/remove programs on any computer and see Flash 11 is installed.  However, web sites say that flash has to be installed.  Even going to the Adobe site on these systems comes up with a message saying that Flash needs to be installed.


I'll tell my users they can't use any Flash-enabled site before I start trotting around computer-to-computer to manually install Flash player!


Can anybody offer suggestions on how to fix this thing?  Centralized install is absolutly required.


Thanks for you help!
