Trying to access message board on fox.com and keep getting their upgrade page which is telling me to download the latest version of Macromedia Flash Player. I go through the entire routine but keep getting this page back. I was able to access the page this morning, now I can't. I running Vista on a new Gateway computer.

I just attempted to access a message board at that site and got the message that my browser was ignoring their cookies, which is unlikely to be true because it is set to accept them. It makes me wonder if their software is the problem?

You could try running the flash uninstaller from the Adobe site (it's not Macromedia any more) and the try to install the latest version of flash; http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_14157&sliceId=1 Running it a couple of times shouldn't hurt because you may have several versions installed.

If you use IE you will need this version; http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/static/styx/English.html or this one for Firefox, Opera etc; http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash

Thanks, I found a standalone version of the player for IE that worked. Some further searching on other sites revealed that this is not a unique problem for Vista Home Premium version.
