mindjolt is flash based games...
Test your flash and shockwave here...
if the site offers to update say yes and then after your done updating reboot your system TWICE..
if that doesn't solve your problem use the guide below


First, uninstall Flash by using the Flash Uninstaller at the link below..

After that's done, then download the manual Flash player installer from the link below.. Run it to install Flash for Internet Explorer.

Once that's done, if you're also using Firefox, visit the site below while in Firefox, then download and run the Flash plugin installer but be sure to uncheck Free McAfee Security Scan (optional) button first

then Test flash and shockwave here...
test with any browsers you use...

if it shows you have them both installed and up to date...

You will need to check the add-ons within Internet Explorer, and ensure that Flash Player is currently enabled. When resetting IE to defaults one of the things it does is disable your currently installed add-ons.
Also, if you have a ...robust..., bloated, security suite it could be managing related security settings which we can check later.

Begin by opening Internet Explorer. You will want to select Tools ... Manage Add-ons ... Enable/Disable Add-ons. This will bring up a window with currently installed... add-ons.

What we're looking for is Shockwave Flash Object if you scroll to the right, within that window, the file name should be Flash9f.ocx You will see a ...Status... column which should say Enabled. If disabled simply click Shockwave Flash Object, and click the Enable radial button towards the bottom of the window. Close the window, and close/reopen the web browser.

If that's not the case you can check the security settings to ensure that you can successfully install ActiveX components. This is done by opening Tools ... Internet Options, and then the Security tab.
Click on the Custom level button...we are looking for the ActiveX category which is represented by a tri-colored cube icon. We are looking for the Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins option which needs to be set to Enable. If not already done so set it to enable, apply, and then close/reopen the web browser.

Check to see if the issue is resolved by visiting a website you know requires Adobe Flash Playerlike here..


If you're using Mozilla Firefox and using the add-on, NoScript, you have to allow scripting to get it to work. You can also switch and use the IE Tab add-on and get it to work.
