You should download and install Adobe Flash Player from here. Ensure you are downloading the correct version for your Operating System and Browser.

If this doesn't work, can you let me know what browser you use?

I'll assume IE7 then...

Try the following:
Arrow Click on Tools then Internet Options
Arrow Click on the Security tab, highlight Internet then set the security level to Medium-high
Arrow Now click on the Programs tab at the top, and then click Manage add-ons
Arrow You should get an entry in there for Shockwave Flash Object - ensure that this is enabled (if not enable it) - let us know if this is not there
Arrow Click OK on all the boxes and try again
