You are losing IE users because of the poor way that ActiveX controls are registered. I cannot install Flash 11 in my 64bit Windows 7 system because of a problem with registering ActiveX controls. Flash 11 installs just fine in Firefox and Chrome---so at the present time I have set Chrome as being my default browser. You might argue that the problem is with Flash but I would argue that if I can install Flash in FF and Chrome then the problem is with IE and not Flash.
How do I get back to IE as my default browser. IOW, how do I get around the "ActiveX control for Flash could not be registered?"

There is nothing wrong with Flash running on Windows 7 64-bit. I have had it running since Adobe foirst published quite awhile ago.
If you're having problems, there is something WRONG with your system, not Adobe Flash Player!!!

Not sure what your problem is. Flash has worked for me in the 32 bit versions of IE always. Adobe made a version for the 64 bit IE available relatively recently. It laso works, although I mostly use the 32 bit browser.
The obvious guess would be a security setting. Do you have ActiveX filtering turned on in IE? I've never used it, and I don't know if it would prevent the ActiveX control from installing, but it may be worth a look.
