Many are experiencing problems of this nature and it appears Adobe is still working on a fix. I suggest following this thread on the Adobe forums:

http://forums.adobe.com/message/4516716?tstart=0

and if you wish apply the temporary fix suggestions there.

I followed Adobe's suggested fix, but it didn't solve the problem for me.
The fix is available on YouTube, and it involves adjusting settings on RealPlayer.

Is there any way to downgrade to a previous version of Flash, say 10.2 or 11.2? These are not available on Adobe's site.

Yes, in that article they give the following link to revert to a previous version:

I got a hold of Flash 10.2, but was unable to install because Adobe prevented the installation of an outdated version.

I think the options were 10.3 or the previous 11.x version. Since those were in the instructions perhaps they are the only ones that will work.

See if anything in the Adobe Troubleshooter helps, particularly the section headed 'A newer version already installed' ;http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/...r-windows.html

All of a sudden everything works!!!

BTW, the problem was only with Win 7. Win XP never had this problem.

So what version are you on at the moment? Did you get an update from Adobe that may have fixed the problem?

Yes, I was aware of that.

Everything is in the same state as it was when the problem began.

No notification from Adobe about any updates.

Very strange!!
