Flash problem

Hi

I am researching for a car and on the BMW website, I click on a link for a video. A box comes up with the message "FLASH PLUGIN REQUIRED: In order to view this section you will need to install Adobe Flash Player. You can find the latest player here:" I know I have the latest version, but antway I follow the link, download the version, install it and get the message that Flash is installed and ready for use. I go back to BMW, click the link and get the message again. Can anyone explain what is happening? On other sites, I often click on a link and absolutely nothing happens. No page opens, no messages, nothing. Is this related? Any answers would be appreciated. I am running Windows 7 and IE9

Thanks Mike

Right

I just opened Norton and changed the firewall setting for Flash from 'Auto' to 'Allow' and the video now plays. Will it be safe to leave it like that?

Turn your Firewall off and see if it will work.
