I've uploaded a document with screenshots. Well, its more a query to know if you're seeing the same thing I see when you install Flash in IE. Do you see the same screens with the same options? You know after all of this it's probably going to turn out to be something really simple like dumping your Flash cache!

When you went to Control Panel, did you see both...
Adobe Flash Player 10 ActiveX
Adobe Flash Player 10 Plug-in
Were both of them there?
If they both were there, and you uninstalled them, did you then also see the "yellow activeX warning" bar in IE when you visited the Adobe site? I'm trying to find out if your computer knew that there was NO ActiveX Flash component.
After you reinstalled flash, did the yellow bar disappear in IE?

It looks like you're going to have to work a little harder! I hope you don't mind!
Go HERE and download the uninstaller for Flash and run it. Just read the page to get information about what to do.
Go to Control panel and uninstall Adobe Air, Shockwave Player 11, Flash Player 10 ActiveX, Flash Player 10 Plugin... and whatever else Adobe type players are there. Since I don't know what you have, you will have to decide. Also, I don't know what the Flash uninstaller will uninstall for you, so run that first and then go to Control panel to do your thing.
If you look on this board, there are a ton of threads for Flash problems. Its something very difficult to isolate so all we can do is try. I've read on websites that it may even just be the Flash player settings you have to mess with, but I'm not sure that would fix your problem. I've also read that Quicktime might be messing something up and needs to be uninstalled, then reinstalled after Flash is working properly, but then, I don't even know if you use Quicktime.
By the way, do you have msacm32.drv in the C:\Windows\System32 folder?

OK, I uninstalled all adobe programs including Photoshop, also uninstalled Quicktime...Went to Adobe site to reinstall and get the message that Java Script needs to be enabled...I click install and get a message about the yellow bar at the top, "click to install active x control" but no yellow bar appears...I have an install_flash icon on my desktop, should I use that?

Codecs may be corrupted

I noticed you are using realplayer, is that for dvd's also?
Have you tried Windows Media Player?

No worries! This kind of problem welcomes all advice.
Not meaning to overstep Makai... <snip>
I know you mentioned this before and I wasn't disregarding it... I was thinking about it. Yesterday, Flash showed the program sizes in my Control panel... that is, until I deleted the wavemapper entry in my registry trying to kill my internet sound in an experiment. Deleting the wavemapper did kill the sound in both IE and FF. I reinstalled the registry entry and sound came back so I thought nothing of it. Today when I look at Flash in Control panel, they indicate no size for both programs. Very wieird.
Flash still shows no size in add/remove programs
Just out of curiosity, where do you have your speakers plugged into? Are they plugged into a green jack on the back of the computer? If not, try plugging into the green jack.
Also, if you go to Control Panel>Sounds... do you have your sound set up for "Stereo" or "Surround Sound"... try setting up for "Stereo".
I'm still hunting...

If you can't play a dvd or if you do you get sound and no picture or video and no sound, I have found that either a audio or video codec is out of date.
Being that you are having a problem even playing a dvd I think the autoplay seems to be turned off.
