Windows 7: Flash Website looks very tiny with IE9

Flash Website looks very tiny with IE9

I am a flash developer and I use swfojbect 2.0 to embed my flash pages in html.
The websites all look very tiny on the screen when viewed with IE9 - it gets fixed when I press 'compatibility view' - but I don't want users to have to do that to see my websites correctly.
I am not using antiquated coding methods so why is this happening!!??

Any help would be appreciated. thanks..

You can add a compatibility header to the page header to force IE8 mode, the following website has some instructions - Internet Explorer 9 Compatibility Quick Fix | Web Developer - Mat Wright

OK I tried that, but it turns out my sites don't display properly in any of the IEs after 6. IE6 is fine, all the others show my sites as being very tiny on the screen.
Any ideas?
Thanks

Did you try

Code:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE6" />

Yes I tried that piece of code, infact it is still in the header atm but is not making any difference to the display. The site still looks very small on the screen. You can see what I mean if you load this page: kattrans.com.
Thanks for any advice. I am trying to work out how I can fix this so that viewers don't need to press the compatibility view for a correct display.
