I have windows 7 SP 1and IE 10 but can not get Flash Player to work


Still, come on people, you're idiots, haven't you read 'red' that IE10 does not support Flash properly, you just clicked Download???
To fix this you might try to go to Tools-Manage add-ons-Then enable the Flash player if it's disabled.
If that does not help, you'll need to go back to Internet Explorer 9.
Just Uninstall IE10 but for safety install any other browser.
