Cant download Flash!!

Hi there,

I cleaned up my pc the other day using C Cleaner and Reg Scrub .. all worked fine until I tried to access You Tube. It would not allow me to view the movies unless I installed Flash - which I diid but still it doesnt work. I tried another site again needing Flash .. I followed the download link and again the PC installed Flash but the site was still unviewable.

Any ideas anyone?

You will need to uninstall flash player first click here reboot and then reinstall.

for some reason the filehippo link seems to cure most without the uninstallation,no idea why though.

Anotherthread with the same problem,though i do not know if they all uninstalled first click here
