    I just need some tips on what to do next, or if you want to skip the
    long post is there a way to restore IE 6 (running on Windows Media
    Center Edition) to its virgin state (complete reinstall.

    The reason why I need this resolved is for a WinForm based app that
    uses the embeded IE control. It's loading Flash documents locally,
    describing the problem in this way gets to the core of the issue I am

    So here's the problem:
    I have an .HTML file saved to a local path c:\htmldocs and inside that
    HTML document I am using the object tag to embed Flash.

    <object id="ContentSWF">
    <param name="movie" value="">
    <param name="quality" value="high">
    <embed id="SWFMovie" src="myflash.swf" width="100%"

    So the swf I am trying to load myflash.swf is in the same directory as
    the .html file. I can open the html file from c:\htmldocs using
    FireFox and it works great. I can also load it from IE 6 on my desktop
    system and IE 7 on my Vista desktop, again... no problems the HTML
    loads the local .SWF file is loaded as expected.

    However on my notebook PC it will not load locally, instead I just see
    the IE ActiveX place-holder icon where the .SWF should be. I have
    taken my notebook and matched up all security settings available
    through IE options and the two are identical.

    I have also tried reinstalling IE 6 from the vendors Windows Media
    Center DVD-ROM. (using the ie.inf file method) the install proceeded,
    but the problem persist.

    Does anyone have a clue what might be causing this? If not, is there a
    way to repair or reinstall IE 6 back to its virgin state (registry
    keys restored 100%, bookmarks wipped, I don't care... just want it
    back too the way it ways initially).

    Please help.

    Below are things I've tried:
    * I went to Adobe's website Flash settings manager and made sure all
    is well.
    * I have removed all anti-virus software from the system
    * I reinstalled the Adobe Flash .OCX from Adobe's website
    * I tried opening the .HTML file from a different folder (I copied
    the .swf along too of course)
    * I tried using FireFox to open the local .HTML on the computer
    expericing the problem, using FireFox it works just fine.
