Flash Player definitely runs fine on Internet Explorer 6 and 7 normally.

JAWS's HTML verbosity settings allow one to turn off Flash (see "HTML Verbosity Options" in the JAWS manual). I don't know whether this only affects JAWS's model of the document, or whether it changes Windows registry settings.

Another possibility is that the Flash or Shockwave Flash plugins have been disabled inside Internet Explorer itself using the Add-on Manager:

You could try installing Firefox and see what happens when the same websites are visited in that browser.

  I am running IE 6 and JFW 8 latest edition on a Windows XP machine and

than one website.
  Is this related to the way JFW is configured?

  I have a hunch that it might not be JAWS-related.  One way to find out is to 
have those people access the sites without JFW loaded.  If the error still 
occur, then it may be that the flash player doesn't like running on IE6 because 
it is optimized to run on IE7.  Just a guess.
