I.E. 8 not displaying Flash content

    I am currently running Win 7, IE 8, and flash 10.0.42.34. I can view Adobe's
    site and it states I have the latest version of Flash and things seem to work
    fine. There are other sites, such as www.motionmro.com that only display a
    gray box for the Flash objects. This issue is repeated on several computers
    in my office but not all. 99.9% the issue appears on computers with dual
    monitors but I am the only person with windows 7, everyone else is XP SP3.
    I have changed security settings to as low as they will go, disabled all
    firewall, anti-virus and anti-malware software. I have reset my IE settings.
    I have used both the windows install clean up tool and the Adobe flash
    uninstaller to remove Flash and then re-install both via activex installer
    and the distributable file.
    I have also searched multiple blogs, help files, knowledge bases, etc...
    with no results. I am sure there is a quick and easy registry setting that I
    can change, but have no idea where to look.

    Thanks for any advise.

    Are you using the 64-bit version of Internet Explorer? Adobe has not
    released a 64-bit version of Flash.

    How about if you use the following link instead of the one you posted:
    http://www.motionindustries.com/motion3/jsp/mii/index.html

    Does the Flash content load if you use this link?

    Good luck,

    You're welcome.

    I doesn't appear to be a client side problem, but rather a web site markup
    problem.

    Using your original link, I could not get the flash content to load here
    either in any version of IE(6,7, or 8). So I tried it with Firefox and was
    automaticly redirected to the link I posted before the Flash content would
    load in Firefox. So it's a problem with the site and not with IE or the
    Flash Player.

    Good luck,

    Donald Anadell
