Flash not working

Hi,

Since I installed Win7, I can't get any newer flash sites to work. I have reinstalled flash and made sure that I have the most recent release, but most sites still say "you do not have the required flash" or whatever.

Any thoughts would be super appreciated. (I'm dying due to a lack of online TV.)

Thanks.

What Internet Browser are you using ?
Have you tried other Browsers like Google Chrome/Safari/Firefox etc. to see if you get the same results

I am not using a disk cleaner.

YouTube flash is actually working. It seems to be more advanced flash sites. For example: watch.ctv.com or veoh will not work. Possibly something like flash version 5 (*purely example) is working but not version 8.

When I go to watch.ctv.ca, I get the following message:
"Express install is not supported by this version of the flash player. To upgrade please visit..."
Again, reinstalling has not yielded any success.

Shockwave

I think you may need shockwave in addition to the regular flash player try that
