Flash Player

I keep getting messages that I need to install Flash Player to view certain sites. I then get told that it has been successfully installed, then I get the message again telling me I need to install it. I have followed earlier threads and have uninstalled and re-installed, then I'm back to square one. I rather think it has something to do with security settings on my computer which is blocking it but I don't know where to look or what to look for. Thanks.

When you uninstalled did you use the Adobe uninstaller, it is the only effective uninstall for flashplayer?

install click here

Yes, I used the Adobe uninstaller. Thanks

Hi, to find your security settings in IE go to Tools>Internet Options>Security then by clicking on each of the icons in that window you can adjust your security settings by moving a slider.
It won't hurt to experiment!

I've tried that but I still get prompted to download and install Flash Player

I had the same problem after using regseeker, and deleting everything it found. I could not view the videos on youtube.( javascript turned off or flash player not installed)

I cured it by removing flashplayer in add/remove programs and downloading again from the youtube site.

Just to add, when you are in add/remove make sure there is only one entry in there for java, j2se runtime environment 5.0 update 9 is the latest version, for security reasons it is better to remove any older entries.

Actually the latest version is Update 10...:-)

There are two versions of Flash Player, one for Internet Explorer and the other for Firefox etc. See:

to download either or both (I use Firefox as the main browser and IE occasionally).

Thanks Stuartli

Just downloaded update 10.

I'm going to mark this as resolved. I've come to the conclusion that my problem is linked to running RegScrubXP. I'm not sure why.
