UPDATE: well after not finding any help from anybody...(Adobe, Microsoft, Spectrum, Tech Net, Google, Bing and ask.com). I started thinking about what has changed with my computer in the last week, hmm...nothing really...no new programs installed, Windows is Up to Date, no Virus' or Malware, everything runs just fine except when I try and use Adobe Flash Player to watch Live TV on my Spectrum (Time Warner Cable) online connection or any other video that requires "Flash Player" to be enabled.
NOTE: last night I went over to a friends apt. who has a brand new HP i7 laptop with Windows 10 and he is running V 18.104.22.168 and he can access Spectrums Live TV just fine.
So instead of reinstalling IE11 or doing a whole computer reformat to try and fix the problem, I deleted Adobe V22.214.171.124 and went back to V 126.96.36.199 and.....wait for it...waaaaaaaitttttttttttt....everything WORKS GREAT again.
Apparently V 188.8.131.52 is incompatible with Windows 7 and IE11...So, I went to my Control Panel/Adobe Flash Player settings and change the settings to "never check for updates" and all is great.
So if you are running Win7 & IE11 :
V26 = BAD
V25 = GOOD
Problem Solved and I just like to pass this along to anybody else who may have this same problem.
Flash Player 26 is very much supported on Windows 7 and IE11.
Flash Player forums don't receive a lot of traffic anymore, and staff only participates M-F during normal business hours, in between their normal workload, as such, it's not uncommon for comments, posted on the weekends, to take a few days to be replied to by staff.
At this point, it's going to be pretty difficult to determine why Flash is no longer working on your system. Usually a simple uninstall/install fixes issues, but you went above and beyond that deleting all sorts of registry items, may not have been required.
But when I go to a website that pops up the message bar at the bottom of my screen saying "This web page wants to run the following add-on "Adobe Flash Player" from Adobe Systems Incorporated" and I click the "ALLOW" button, the screen just flashes and nothing happens and the bar with the question is still there.
This is most likely the IE settings preventing Flash from launching. If you haven't done so yet, reset IE to it's default settings and see if that works. See https://support.microsoft.com/en-US/help/17441/windows-internet-explorer-change-reset-sett ings
everything runs just fine except when I try and use Adobe Flash Player to watch Live TV on my Spectrum (Time Warner Cable) online connection or any other video that requires "Flash Player" to be enabled.
Please provide a publicly accessible URL to the exact site (not just time warner cable, but the exact URL to the video content) that is not working.
m_vargas, well Hello there, yes I did "Reset IE 11 to it's default settings" in one of my attempts to fix the problem, no dice, doesn't help fix the problem.
You will probably need an account to log in, I have one because this is my Internet and TV service here in Charlotte, NC.
But like I posted to the "comment" that I originally posted, I have solved the problem by rolling back to a previous Update. I also have sent the solution to 3 of my friends that have been having the exact same problem and it fixed their problem too.
...it might not be Win7 & IE11, on every website, but I know it fixed the problem when using the Spectrum Live TV access deal.
have a nice day and thanks for your effort.

P.S. OMG did you hear the bad news about Dr. Who...as a woman !!! no offense but he's suppose to be a MAN...trying to be all "Gender Correct"...(what would Rose do with her/him ?) just like last year when they brought that lesbo "Bill" on board, the ratings took a dive...50 bucks says the show will be cancelled or a new Doctor will come in before the new season gets half way finished....like David Tennant...."I'm Back, did ya miss me".
