Go here and download and install the free flash player http://www.macromedia.com That should fix it. Advice - don't install 'beta' software till it's a finished, fully tested product unless you have a spare PC to test beta stuff on. I have to say, Microsoft are taking a long time to get their antispyware utility out of the beta stage -- but I suppose that's to be expected since they've been criticised in the past for rushing stuff through. Seems like it's removed the flash player your wife was using instead of merely blocking it. As for flash being a security risk - it's quite safe if you have a firewall installed.

Thanx but i tried to download the flash player and nothing happened. My wife has comcast as her homepage and it uses flash player 7. I downloaded #7 but i still can't get her home page interface to come up and she also can't play pop cap games ie. bejeweled. I then went over to my side to see if this problem would also be on my side as well and it wasn't. I was able to play bejewled on my side with no problems i uninstalled antispyware beta and that didn't fix the problem any help will be greatly appreciated
