IE with Flash works in all accounts but mine.
Latest Adobe Flash player (10) is properly installed. Flash content will play on IE8 in anyone's User Account on this machine but mine. The only way flash content will play in my user account is if it is started as "Run As Administrator". Can actually run 2 instances of IE side by side, one started normally, the other started as "Run as Administrator". Oprah, U Tube, etc., will run flash content in the latter window, but won't in the former. Flash errors (in IE7} are something to the effect, "Can't run DLL", with line number reference, etc. No help from Adobe, HP (my machine manufacturer) or Microsoft without paying them a bundle. Just updated IE7 to 8, problem unchanged.

I've got to assume this is a user account problem, rather than anything to do with IE and/or Adobe Flash Player. I'd love to know how to fix my current user account, not just create a new user account. (A new user acct. does the job, but I'm somewhat low on disk space so recreation and duplication of all the stuff in my current account before deleting the old account is a difficulty, plus I'm just real curious what's wrong with my current user account!)
