Ok, for the past few weeks now I can no longer watch/see swf files. Example: My fiance' sent me a link to a swf, I click on the link, my browser window opens loads the page, but all I get is a image place holder. So I tried to right-click save as, deal to save it to my desktop and open it from there. I then get a warning asking me what program to use to open the file, I choose select from list, flash player is not there, so I goto the macromedia website and download and install the player. It says that it installed sucessfully, I try the swf file again, same thing. I search the HD for the swf player, and I can't find it anywhere. I have gone through this process about 10 times, searched everything I can find about this and no luck at all. I hope someone has an idea.
