Ok
Then you can't do that step we can move on to some settings.

open IE
tools/
internet options/
programs/
manage add-ons button/

Do you see any entries in there for Shockwave/Flash?

if so highlight it and make sure its enabled down the bottom.

I am down to my last suggestion I am afraid
reinstall IE

Internet Explorer

On the right of this page there is a link titled
Download
Get the latest version for your PC.

Click it download IE for a fresh install.

If that doesn't fix it then I am stumped.

Its targetted at IE but it will search for any other needed upgrades.
any of the missing updates could be causing this problem.

SP2 and IE are the most likely culprits thou.

You can do it manually
