I'm being driven scatty by this. I can't remember how many times I have downloaded this system successfully (according to the message at the end of the process), but I Keep getting a warning near the top of the screen that I need to run the Flash add-on before I can do what I intend. I also cannot get 'Street View' to work withour reinstalling Flash Player again. It is so irritating. My operating system is Windows XP with Service Pack 3. I have AVG, Spybot, McAfee (all disabled as I don't want it. With this information, can anyone please tell me what I should do to get the blasted Flash player to do its stuff and leave me alone to do mine?!!!
Upgrades, and updates are available to patch security issues, compatibility, and bugs. That's why they are necessary.
And blocking them will make your pc outdated, and a security risk for you. Also Maybe there is a registry issue, try to fix it with ccleaner, and then update your flash player, close and restart your browser, check for errors on your system again, and fix them with ccleaner. And then check if it asks for the update again. IF that is the case, upgrade your explorer to latest version. And reinstall flash player by uninstalling, and then reinstalling it.
northumbria61 - thanks for info on cut and pasting. Used this to input your run command, but couldn't understand the resulting list of files etc, so abandoned this. 124 - closed everything down, uninstalled all Adobe Flash, download manager and Reader programmes. Restarted computer and re-installed all Adobe stuff. Then tried to use Street view, and am again prompted to install Flash Player 10 or better, then Activex, whereupon Street View worked. However, on exiting Google Maps and then going back, Street View again need Activex. I'm going to bed, and tomorrow will explore closing down AVG or Spybot and do it all again. Thanks for your help Neil
