Hello Gary 3287 and welcome to geeks to go!

Let's run through some possible fixes for your flash issue (once/if the issue is fixed, leave off following the rest of the instructions):
  • Use the following utility and instructions to uninstall flash:
    How to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plug-in and ActiveX control

    Make sure you close all open windows (including IE) prior to running the utility. Once completed, use the following instructions to install flash again:
    Adobe Flash Player Download Center - Windows
  • Perform the uninstall as per the instructions above, then go to the C:\Windows\System32 directory and delete the folder called Macromed. You'll probably have to exit any web browsers you have open first. Try installing again after the folder is deleted.
  • Use the same instructions as before to uninstall the Flash Player, but this time use the following link to install it again (direct download link):
    Full Flash Player
  • In IE, go to Tools | Internet Options, select the Advanced tab, and click the Reset... button. Confirm the reset and then reinstall the Adobe Flash player.
Regards,

Ax

Thank you. I was able to finally get Flash Player 9 installed, so it says. The problem still exists. When I try to view flash content, in IE, it prompts me to install flash player, and will not open the item i'm trying to view. However Firefox will open them.

Try disabling your antivirus and/or firewall temporarily when you install Flash, as these can sometimes cause problems with the install.
