Hi, I can't play .swf files in Internet Explorer (7 Beta 3).
The page loads, but it's just blank, and it says "Done" at the bottom left, with an exclamation mark in a yellow triangle. If I double click this, I get the "Problems with this web page might prevent it from being displayed properly etc etc" error message. I have the latest Flash and Shockwave players from Adobe.
The files I am trying to play used to work perfectly. No idea why they don't work any more.

This sounds similar to a problem I had with internet explorer over the summer. It may be part of the security settings that microsoft has made for IE - which I haven't been able to reverse. have you tried viewing the particular page in netscape or firefox/mozilla? I suggest downloading one of those browsers if you don't already have it. I have found that I have problems displaying Flash objects using IE but not netscape.
