installing, rebooting, saving it to the desktop and rebooting prior to installing, cursing, nothing works. It all started with an autoupdate of the Flash player to Flash 11. I am running I.E.11 on a Windows 7 machine. I am on AT&T Uverse with McAfee provided by the network provider. I have seen references to registry errors causing these problems, so I will try some type of registry scan/fix to see if that is the problem (if I can find one that doesn't cost $50 or come with 82 extra programs). This Flash player has really turned into a huge piece of s**t:(
This is a known problem with Internet Explorer 11, which Microsoft has been aware of since October 18 when they released their latest "untested" browser. The pages can't recognize the browser, so they don't recognize any of the plugins, like Flash Player. So far, Microsoft has made NO indication that they have any plan to fix it soon.
Microsoft's recommendation is to use Compatibility View for affected pages, and "pretend" you're using an different browser. Trouble with that is it has seen limited success at best, and you have to individually enable it for EVERY page that has problems.
I'm not big on "pretending" so I recommend actually using another browser.
ANY of those will work where IE11 won't, with the Flash Player Plug-in (For all other browsers), and Chrome doesn't even need that because it has its own Flash Player plugin built in.
