    A few months ago I began having issues while attempting to install Flash Player and [COLOR=green !important][COLOR=green ! important]QuickTime[/COLOR][/COLOR]. I'm currently using Firefox 7.0, plus Internet Explorer 8 as a backup browser. In Firefox, the installation is successful, but whenever I restart the computer, it requires another installation. However I attempt an IE installation, I get the "failed to register" message, citing problems with the ActiveX control. Prior to all this, I hadn't any problems with either browser's handling [COLOR=green !important][COLOR=green ! important]the [COLOR=green ! important]Flash[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] Player. I've tried several corrective methods online, but nothing seems to fix the problem.
    I've also had issues with QuickTime installs; install attempts have been met with the "Error 46: Could not load or find the QuickTime ActiveX control" message.

    The ActiveX control seems to be the culprit in both cases and I'm beginning to suspect it might be a registry problem, but I'm not sure. I'm a bit at wit's end with this and would appreciate any help correcting it. I've listed [COLOR=green !important][COLOR=green !important]my [COLOR=green !important]computer's[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] specs in my profile in case you need any of that info.
