Default swf won't open???

I'm a newbie. What am I doing wrong? I have created or downloaded several Flash MX 2004 movies, ranging in size from 35KB to 600KB, but none of the swf files will open up.

Here is exactly what I'm doing:
1) See swf file on my C drive (it can be ANY swf file, even one straight from a book's CDROM), and I click on it.

2)An Internet Explorer browser window opens up, and the loading bar progresses very slowly. After about one minute it stops about halfway. It never fully loads. I never see the flash movie.

I can play a Projector of each of them, and I can also play them easily when I "Test Movie" my fla. But I can't get an swf to open other than in "Test Movie" mode -- and I obviously want others to be able to open one if I email one to them or put one on a website.

I'm sure the answer is simple, but I can't figure it out. Please help me out. Thank you!
