Hi, paint11.

I don't know what is causing the problem. Perhaps uninstalling Flash and reinstalling will help. I suggest a restart after uninstalling.

Hi, 24c. Did you have the same problem as paint11 or you mean you've updated Flash?

I've updated although Secunia PSI says that the new version is a Code 5 Security Threat whereas the previous was only Code 3.

Hi, Joan.

You may want to verify that you have indeed obtained the current version for both IE and any alternate browser you may use. Unfortunately, Adobe has a different version for IE and non-IE browsers.

Go to About Flash Player page to verify the Flash Player version for each browser installed.

If the Flash update was installed on only one browser, another update is needed:

Hi Corrine, I have the the current version and it's verified via the Flash Player page, and I only have IE8 installed on this machine.

OK I went to Secunia to check it out and there have been others who noticed it and I believe now it's been fixed by them, I'm just running another Secunia scan to see what it comes up with.
