Windows 7: Flash doesn't work on Win7

Flash doesn't work on Win7

Hi everybody,

I'm new to Windows 7 (64 bits build). Everything worked fine until yesterday. For some reason Flash contents (videos, etc.) cannot be played anymore, either on Firefox or on IE8. No error message is showed, the browser just freezes.
I have updated both browsers and the plugins, but the problem persists and I have no idea of what to do.
Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance.

It's because there is no 64bit flash yet.

When using flash, IE should just use the 32 bit. That is what happens to me.

Go to search go to all programs and make sure that you have IE on both the 32 and 64 bit platform. You should see IE 64 and just IE.
