When you go to that web-pages screen, do you see a bar at the top of the screen asking if you trust that site's Flash Content, and offering a choice? "Allow" or "Do not allow"
no. the web pages all look the same as before but with no flash content
First, confirm that ActiveX Filtering is configured to allow Flash content:
You can try to work around these issues by using Compatibility View:
If that is too inconvenient, using Google Chrome may be a preferable alternative.
If that's the case why was it working for a limited time? Why did flash player not stop working as soon as IE11 was introduced? It was only when I tried to up-grade to the newer version. And older versions will not work. There has to be something within IE11 that is blocking the flash player.
Here's what I'd do:
I'd ensure that the filesystem is in good shape:
Then I'd download the offline installer for the ActiveX control:
If you're still not getting Flash Content, I'd try resetting Internet Explorer's settings:
Before I started this thread I tried resetting IE, that didn't work. Haven't added anything to the computer. Tried the offline installer, good suggestion, still nothing. I did notice though, when I check under tools>manage add-ons> the shock flash object doesn't show up in the "currently loaded add-ons" , but does show up in "all add-ons" and it does say it's enabled. It is as if its on the computer just not interacting
Finally got it fixed, had to un-install IE and re-install IE. What a b!tch. because not all IE versions worked. The latest one does, IE11, but when you re-install it you can't tell it's there. There is no shortcut created and you can't find it doing a search in the search box, only the installer package comes up. To put a shorcut on the desktop you need to go to: Control Panel>Network and Sharing Center>See Full Map>Right-click Internet>Click Pin to Start Menu. Then click start and drag the IE icon onto your desktop. What a b!tch
