Same problem as Murph127.
HP Pavilion dm4, IE10(32bit), Win7 64bit, latest version of Flash.
Tried downgrading to IE9 - no succes.
Tried downgrading to previous version of Flash - no succes.
Also tried the uninstall/clean install as Murph - no success.
Checked the two things you suggested, Pat.
Flashplayer addon was already enabled, and ActiveX filtering is not enabled.
The things is, when I go to this site to check my installation, it tells me that I will eithersee my version diplayed in the box, or an errormessage indicating I have issues with my Flash installation:
Well I'm seeing neither - just a blank box.
I have the same problem on another HP laptop (Folio 13, Win7 64bit, IE10 32 bit).
I'm pretty sure this all started when I installed IE10 sometime in March when it was released - but how come downgrading to IE9 did not do the trick?
Checked it - I've already got the newest driver installed!
Murph I had similar trouble with Win7 64bit Ultimate using IE10. Found out that Java was not installed properly. Suggest you start by having a clean install of both Java and Adobe Flash. Make sure Java is working properly. The Java site is quite good and you can test that is working before downloading Adobe Flash. Hope that helps.
Same issue here. The fix that seems to have worked for me on multiple computers is to open IE10, hit the Tools cog at top right, go to Manage Add-Ons and make sure "Shockwave Flash Object" is Enabled. Good luck.
Assuming you've checked to make sure that Shockwave Flash is enabled in IE's addons manager and you do not have ActiveX filtering enabled, Could you check to see if you have the following Windows update installed?
If so, please first try updating your video drivers and if it still occurs uninstall the update and try Flash Player out again.
Shockwave Flash enabled - check.
ActiveX filtering disabled - check.
Latest video drivers installed - check.
Bingo! Now the Flash player is working in IE9.
The only issue is that now the update to IE10 fails with error code 9C59, but that's a different issue I will search for answers to.
Thanks for the assistance!
Hi everyone - did everything above, no joy. Fixed my problem by changing rendering on Internet Options, Advanced to software rather than GPU. Hey presto! Sorted

Thanks. Was there a driver date field in the Display Devices section? The latest version from Intel is dated 3/21/13) and has a version number of 188.8.131.52.3062. You might want to look into updating this driver if possible, it might allow you to turn GPU acceleration back on.
Chris I did that so many times and it won't let me download the latest flash player on my Windows 8. I will hold Dell responsible for selling a defected product. When my new PC arrived, I checked and it came with pre-downloaded 32bit version and my PC is 64bit. It also came with a pre-downloaded primitive version of Adobe Flash Player that won't even let you update it to the latest. Very Frustrated and I will never purchase Dell computer ever.
Hi Chris - did as you suggested however used Intel Update Utlity downloaded driver update however turned the screen almost unreadable (bright red)??!
That's not supposed to happen... I've actually never seen a screen do a color shift like that with a simple driver update. Can you try installing the driver again? Which version did it install?
Hi Chris - Intel Utility scanned machine (HP Pavilion dv6 (6c77sa)) and suggested ver. 184.108.40.206.3062 (220.127.116.1162). Interestingly HP Software & Driver download site lists this as the latest version - 2012-04-12 , Version:18.104.22.1686?
Postscript - found a thread on Intel Support Community where an HP user with similar machine (HP Pavilion dv7) had same problem - thread ref 33191. Problem is dual graphics on these laptops (Intel/AMD) and seems you have to update not only Intel but AMD and Catalist Control Center drivers - how complicated!
Now this is a tad frustrating.
Without having installed any new updates since I assumedly fixed my problem, the issue just now reappeared i.e. Flash non-working in IE9 but working fine in Firefox.
So back to this thread.
I tried above option (changing rendering on Internet Options, Advanced to software rather than GPU) and that also worked for me.
The frustration is not knowing what caused this to happen again - I do not allow any automatic updates on my computers as I want to be in (sort of) control of what gets updated. So now I just wait for it to happen again.
The recommendation to uninstall KB2670838 was the only thing that resolved my client's issue. Thank you very, very much!
Symptoms: In IE9 and IE10 could view flash video clips (Youtube, etc.) but not animations/sliders, Firefox and Chrome had no problems with anything Flash related.
Running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit
Downgraded to IE9 from IE10 and then back up again. Made sure latest Shockwave flash object was enabled in add ons and had ActiveX filtering turned off.
Tried removing Flash uisng various methods, rebooting, reintalling, even installed older versions of Flash with no luck.
Finally uninstalled KB2670838 and all is well in IE10. Also changed Windows update to not automatically downlaod and install any future updates so as to keep KB2670838 at bay.
Suggested to client to ditch IE and just use Chrome, but she prefers IE. Go figure.
Thanks again for the great advice!
Here is solution I used for IE10, Window 7 64 bit:
1. Internet Explorer> Tools (or Alt + t)>Internet Options>Programs>Manage add-ons (Show: All add-ons) verify that the Shockwave Flash Objects are enabled.
2. From Safety on the IE Command Bar (you may have to right-click the IE menu or IE toolbar and enable the Command Bar) uncheck ActiveX Filtering.
If that helps, it would be safer to re-enable ActiveX Filtering and make an exception for the affected sites. See this article:
How to use Tracking Protection and ActiveX Filtering:
Hi Chris, since this is an acknowledged bug that seems to be impacting Flash pretty heavily, are you guys going to work on a patch or just leave it to MS to fix?
This will/would be a fix from Microsoft. They might have already done this in a recent KB update as it seems like the number of these reports have died down over the last few months.
I can't even download or install Flash player add on in Internet Explorer. I have a program that requires it and IE 10 to access it's library of 3d objects and it does not work. I have clean installed about 10 times. Firefox and Chrome work. IE 10 cannot even install. I've been trying to remedy this for over 6 months now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
just tried all the methods mentioned above, still can't able to make this works.
As many posters above I have been suffering with the same problem for months...Mine got solved by following a suggestion to install the latest version of Intel's video hard ware driver. Go to the Intel website and have their hardware utility scan do a ..well...scan for the latest drivers...and install what is suggested. This is the link:
As others have suggested, you should check and see if you have the latest driver for your display adapter! I tried everything else, when I noticed some others had suggested this. I uninstalled Flash Player, updated my display adapter driver and then I re-installed the new version of Flash Player. Now it works just fine.
It seems this version of Flash Player is very particular, and won't work with older display drivers.
buon giorno avevo firefox lo scancellato e aggiunto e installato chrome ok
I think I figured it out.
tldr; change sound format. sound driver not working correctly. My driver is "Conexant 20751 SmartAudio HD"
1. Go to Control Panel > Sound
2. On the Playback tab click on the speakers.
3. Click Properties
4. On the Advanced tab click Test
6a. If you heard sound then test flash again else Goto 6b
7a. If Flash works then Party!!! else Goto 6b
6b. If flash doesn't work or the test failed/froze then change the format
7b. Restart computer
8b. Goto 1
repeat this process until you find a format that works.
You could also try reinstalling/updating the sound driver to fix it.
