Adobe Flash and Internet Explorer 7

Earlier last month I was having trouble with certain websites such as YouTube or MSN Soapbox. It appeared as if the site failed to detect that the Adobe Flash player was installed whereas other sites such as the Adobe Flash Player installation page would detect the correct version of the player and even display the Flash movie. According to an Adobe TechNote, this could happen due to an incomplete installation of Flash Player.

If you’re experiencing a similar problem, try the following:

  1. Quit all running applications or simply restart your computer
  2. Run the stand alone Adobe Flash Uninstaller
  3. Run the stand alone Adobe Flash Installer
