One thing to try: uninstall flash using a utility from Adobe, and then install it afresh.

If you are using windows 7 X64 along with IE in x64 you are out of luck!
Adobe is working on a x64 version. The existing X86 version will not work.

Go to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash and run the FlashUtil file with all IE windows closed. Reboot, and then try those websites again.

Deacon, thanks for the suggestion. How ever NO JOY!
Using 64 bit IE adobe flash does not display any image.

You shouldn't be using the 64 bit version of IE. My instructions above are for reloading Flash for the default, 32 bit version of IE. You can delete your shortucts to the 64 bit version, because it's useless.

Deacon, thanks for the insight. But if you had read this message thread I addressed the 64 bit IE issue.
I suspect Phillipc is using a 64 bit browser.
The OP needs to use a 32 bit browser to get flash to work.

Phill, if I could suggest that you open up your browser and click your mouse over the tools drop down menu on the top right side of yor browser and move down to the "Manage Add Ons" option and take a screen shot for us.
Attached is what mine looks like.
