Problems with IE9 and Adobe Flash Player

I am using Windows 7, 64 bit. I have upgraded to IE9 from IE8.  I now can not watch any video, getting the message that need to get current Flash Player.  I have downloaded Adobe FP and it is recognized by the computer in the Manage Add-Ons in tools in IE9.  I have uninstalled/reinstalled IE9, similarly Uninstalled/reinstalled Adobe FP, followed all of the instructions in, still get the same message.  I have checked for missing/corrupted Windows Resource Protection files, none found.  I have used 32 bit IE9.  Also installed/unstalled Adobe Square FP for 64 bit Windows 7, but get same message.  Any ideas/suggestions?

Try the following (assuming you have Adobe Flash Player installed):


·         - Restart your computer

·         - Open Internet Options (located in the Control Panel)

·         - Click on the Advanced tab

·         - Click on the Reset button, place a check next to Delete Personal Settings and then click Reset.

·         - Launch IE9 and visit YouTube and the video should now play
