            Your  instructions helped a little, but my problem was finally solved as explained below:


            I completed the download/installation of Flash Player 11, but it did not work, it seemed to be "disabled".

            I then  went to Adobe.com Flash Player Help (http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/flash-player-games-video-or.html)

            I followed the instructions:  Disable ActiveX Filtering (if using Internet Explorer 9)                                          Close Internet Explorer and then restart it. 

            Next I downloaded/installed Google Chrome (Flash player is integrated into  Chrome and enabled by default).

            My problem has been solved and the Flash Player/Google Chrome works perfectly.

            Thanks,Sam Jones
