""RE: Can't install Adobe Flash Player update

28th Feb, 2010 22:34


I have Windows XP with IE. My Adobe Flash Player 10 is broken. I use the removal tool that Adobe supplies and that now sits on my desktop. I shut down everything that I can think of, including windows explorer, the internet connection, and Norton before I run the removal tool. I look at the details of the installation to make sure that nothing says "delete on reboot"; if it does, I reboot.

I then run the installation tool in the same way from my desktop, but when I try to view a video it says that I need to install Adobe Flash Player version 10. According to the add/remove-programs portion of my control panel, the Flash Player is installed, but it isn't recognized when I try to use it.

When instead I follow the Adobe troubleshoot script, I go to the line "If you are still having problems, click here to download." I click as instructed, and when it gets to installation it says "Adobe Flash Player 10 has been loaded before. Reload it?" This makes me think that some file did not get removed by the uninstaller, but I can't figure out what it is.

When Adobe offers the Flash Player for download, it tries to give me some free time with Macafee, but I always uncheck that box before proceeding. Could that be a problem?

Any ideas?""



I'm new on here, can't ya Tell? Anyways I am having the exact problem this member had trying to uninstall Adobe Flash Player. It was on my laptop a few weeks ago and now I can't get it to down load back. When I go to "uninstall programs " in control panel it shows it listed but as mention above anything that requires flash player does not regonize it on my laptop. The only difference between my problem and his, I run Windows 7. I have tried the other suggestions made in the first thread "Can't install Adobe Flash Player " that's lock now.

Please advise
Thanks
Greg

@Thunder 31

Try reading thro' the various threads here :-
http://secunia.com/community/forum/?forum=2&vendor...
which may give you a few leads.
I've lost touch with Adobe probs as I use Chrome browsers which have Flash as an integral component/plug in. Sorry can't be of more help....but you did sound very agitated ! Regards,

If U want to double check Flash is working & the version installed click here: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

1. Does that link tell U it is successfully installed?

2. If yes are U using IE9?

Well I tried almost all the fixes I read, but feeling I missed something, so I eventually reverted my IE9 back to IE8 and problem solve...

Pity. I suspect U had ActiveX filtering switched on in IE9 hence my post (above) questions to U. This creates what appears to be an error message with sites using Flash in that they indicate Flash is required/not installed/lacks the latest version.

It is a security feature which requires switching on & off by the user & is not available in IE8.

Hmmm could you direct me to were I can find this security feature so I can turn it off or on. Then I will reinstall IE9.

Thanks

Top Row - Tools>ActiveX Filtering - if U click on ActiveX Filtering it will put a tick (check mark) to the left - it is then active - reverse that action to cancel the feature.
