Windows 7 32bit, Flash, Java, All Browsers, Streaming Video

Ok i'm having the same problem as lots of other people.

I go to bbc.co.uk/iplayer, i click on something i want to watch I get there and the page appears but with no pre-video image or play button.

I have just down graded from windows 7 64bit to windows 7 32bit as I thought this may have been the problem, due to flash 64bit problems. So I have a fresh install of windows 7.

I have tried quite a few things, please see the list below:

1. Both firefox, chrome, ie 9 & ie 10. All with no flash or java installed, i know this is not right, but something interesting happened. The website did exactly the same thing as before, there was nothing telling me on the bbc website that flash was needed and go here to download it.

2. Installed different versions of flash and java, and in combinations of old & old, old & new, new & old, new & new.

3. I have tried older versions of browers, this made no difference.

4. My wifes computer does the same thing with firefox and chrome, but ie 9 does work correctly. we copied all settings from internet options, ie 9's settings from her's to mine. Still nothing.

5. I have tried clearing cashe, nothing changed.

6. I have removed flash and java. then just installed Google Chrome, as this has flash built in. I then tried bbc iplayer and still nothing. I then install java, again nothing.

7. There have been other website as well as bbc iplayer, that are not working.

These problems happen in all browsers on my computer and on all browsers except ie9 on my wifes computer.

My system:
Amd Athlon II x4 635 2.90Ghz
Geforce 8800GS
4Gb Ram
Running Windows 7 32bit

My Wifes System:
AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual core 6000+
ATI Radeon 6450
4Bg Ram
Running Windows 7 64Bit

However our Sony Vaio plays all video types on all browers, running windows 7 32Bit.


Youtube runs fine on my computer. When I check flash version on adobe site the flash created box appears telling me my version. It seems odd that some types of flash run whilst others do not. When they're not working, there is no error message, just an empty box where the flash item should be.

Any ideas?

Update

I have just tried this shockwave test and nothing happens, the box is empty.

Adobe - Test Adobe Shockwave Player

When I go to Flash Player version information | Adobe .. This works fine.

I can view Live tv on the bbc website, but still can't watch anything else there. Also got shock wave running on ie10 but not on chrome.

Anyone got any ideas?
