Flash Installed But Not Working

I really like the new MS Virtual Earth Radar on weather.com, it is much better than its predecessor.  Anyway, it suddenly stopped working and kept prompting me to install Flash, then I would hit the link, install etc., and Adobe reported that Flash 9 was successfully installed...However, the radar still didn't show up and some other interactive real estate sites were not either.

This seemed to start happening after I switched to the very cool and new my.yahoo Beta, but I do not think that caused it.  I am also running Vista with IE 7 of course.

So I started Googling around and found out that other people had the same issue.  The solution is to unistall flash and then re-install it.  This is something I should have done, but didn't...so I thought I would share this with everybody.

To uninstall Flash you must use their uninstall executable which can be found here.  Good Luck!

Well I've been using the uninstall util to remove Flash, then reinstalling it freshly every few days, since early March now. It works fine for a few days, then just stops working again. In other words, for me at least, the uninstall routine is NOT a permanent fix.

I note that Adobe release a new version (build 9.0.45) within the past few days. I have now installed that - hopefully they are now fully Vista compatible....
