Thank you Kim and Hans for your replies. I am so confused and frustrated with all of this and have spent so much valuable time on it. I would really appreciate being able to sort this out.

Kim, I did what you said and apparently it wasn’t installed despite being listed as installed in Control Panel/Programs and Features.

I uninstalled it and reinstalled it (and it went exactly as before) and yet it was inexplicably able to do what Hans said and delete the MISSING bit on Alt-F11/ Tools/ References.

See attachment for what shows on Control Panel/Flash Player 32-bit. Apparently PPAPI Plug-In Version is via my Google Chrome browser. Should I have installed it via Internet Explorer?

My laptop is 64-bit and that is what it told me as well, when I was downloading it, but didn’t give me an option to download a 64-bit version and didn’t say that the version I was downloading was 32-bit – could this be the problem? If so, I haven’t been able to find a 64-bit version – and no problem arises when I download this apparently 32-bit one. Surely there must be a 64-bit one.

Hans, could you give me the link you used, to download Bubbles.ppt please - perhaps the problem is that I am installing the wrong version and/or from the wrong link.

I have recently installed AVG (not the free version) via my service provider, on my "new" secondhand laptop. Could AVG settings be interfering with it?

Ah - try installing Flash Player for Internet Explorer. Here is a direct link to the installer: Flash Player for Internet Explorer (ActiveX). This should install the ActiveX control that you need.
Regards,
Hans
