You need flash player 9, if you have 10 installed you need to dl the old version and the uninstaller for 10  from here. Link

P.S. Always start with the small hammer and work your way up.

Yeah....but use internet explorer, and Flash Player 9....not Flash 10.

Make sure the pic is the right size, also.

If you had flash 10 installed,Adobe says you will need to use their uninstaller to remove it properly.Click on the link I provided and on that page you will see (TechNote  tn_14157) which is a link to the uninstaller.You may have to reinstall 10,uninstall it with the uninstaller,restart your computer then install Flash9(139Mb).
