I can't see any Flash animations on my computer...I know that Firefox automatically filters them out, but I can't see them with IE either. Can you help me figure out why Flash isn't working on IE? I have no idea where to start...

Happy New Year

Try this

http://www.filehippo...flashplayer_ie/

It will install over the top of the existing version which may be corrupt

When I click 'download latest version' the next page opens up, where it reads 'download will start automatically'. In Firefox, I then get the message 'the document contains no data' and with IE the get the standard 'cannot find server' message.

Does it matter which browser I use to download? I was able to download it with FF after trying with IE and getting this jumbled message:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html (View Source for full doctype...)>

After downloading with FF, I still am unable to see flash stuff with IE. I think my IE is screwed. THanks for your help.
