Question about Microsoft Windows 95 + Internet Explorer for PC

Can't run Adobe Flash in Internet Explorer unless in Admin mode

I have an HP with Vista. I installed Adobe Flash but I think I have screwed up my security settings as it only works when I right click IE and use administrative mode. Does anyone know the proper security settings that I should be using? Thanks a bunch!

    Not only did this not work, but I lost my homepage as well. Instead of Google, I got AOL plus a recurring message from Microsoft about phishing. It also removed my site history, a bunch of sites that I log into on a daily basis. I now have to go back and re-enter each site, which is a pain, but not the end of the world. I also changed my home page back to Google.

Man you have to download the supporting mozilla firefox , internet explorer and adobe flash player.
that means these softwares must support your windows vista service pack 1.but i personally advice you that you have to upgrade to windows 7 ultimate or home edition.most of the softwares supports windows 7.i think that you got the solution.

Adobe activex flash player does not work.it did download,but Ican't get it to work.I have vista & explorer 9,I tried everything on the adobe site.


Try uninstalling the flash player first then visit the website:

https://ninite.com/

Scroll down to the section called "Runtimes" and click on "Flash (IE)"

Then Scroll all the way down to the bottom and click on "Get installer"

Download the .exe file and save it on your desktop

Run the installer, remember to close your browser first.

After it installs close the ninite program and open IE (internet explorer) again and visit a website that requires flash (like youtube)

Downloading adobe flash player be come a problem on my computer


When you download and install Flash Player from the Adobe Flash Player Download Center, the download uses the Adobe Download Manager. Instead of using the Adobe Download Manager, you can download and run the Flash Player installer manually.
  1. If you haven't already done so, Uninstall previous versions of Flash Player.
  2. Select the manual installer depending on the browser you use. Select one of the following:
  1. A File Download dialog box appears. Select Save. (If you are using Firefox, select Save File).
  2. Print these instructions and then close all applications.
  3. Open the folder in which you saved the file.
  4. Double-click the file name to run the manual installer.
  5. Select the license agreement and then select Install.

  6. When the installation completes, select Done.
  7. Go to http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about. If the installation was successful, the page displays the Adobe Flash Player version. For more information, see Determine the Flash Player version you installed, if any.

I play a game on facebook, and every time I go into the game, a screen says my plugin has crashed. What do I do to fix it?


Depend on your OS. If is Windows IE, some issues has found on this.

Try this :
our version of Windows is either a 32-bit operating system or a 64-bit operating system. A 64-bit operating system can run both 32-bit applications and 64-bit applications.Your browser, such as Internet Explorer, is either a 32-bit application or a 64-bit application. Flash Player works only with a browser that is a 32-bit application. On a 32-bit operating system, your browser is always a 32-bit application. However, on a 64-bit operating system, your browser is either a 32-bit application or a 64-bit application. Make sure you are using a 32-bit browser by following these instructions:

Windows with Internet Explorer
To make sure you are using a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer, follow these steps:
  1. In Internet Explorer's Help menu, select Help > About Internet Explorer. (In some versions of Internet Explorer, select the question mark in the upper right corner to select About Internet Explorer).

    ieversion2.gif
  2. If you do not see the words "64-bit Edition" next to the version number, you are running a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer. Continue to Determine the Flash Player version you installed, if any.
  3. If you do see the words "64-bit Edition", go to Flash Player on 64-bit operating systems (TechNote 6b3af6c9) to continue troubleshooting your Flash Player installation.
Windows with other browsers, such as Firefox, Google Chrome, or Opera
No official 64-bit version of these browsers is currently available on 64-bit Windows operating systems. Therefore, unless you are using a test version of a browser (not typical), your browser is a 32-bit application, and therefore, works with Flash Player. Continue to Determine the Flash Player version you installed, if any.

2. Determine the Flash Player version you installed, if any

Before you troubleshoot Flash Player installation, determine the version of Flash Player you have installed, if any. You can see if it is working and whether it is the latest version available for your operating system. Follow these steps:
  1. Go to http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about. If you have already successfully installed Flash Player, the page displays the Adobe Flash Player version as shown in the following image:
    flasht23.jpg
    Note: The version number in this example might be different than the version you have installed.

    If you have not successfully installed Flash Player, you will not see the image.
  1. The same page http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about has a table that shows the latest Flash Player version available for your operating system (for example, Windows or Macintosh) and your browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Firefox). If the version information shown in step 1 does not match the latest version shown in the table, upgrade to the latest version. To upgrade, continue to Uninstall previous versions of Flash Player.
Note:Internet Explorer uses a different Flash Player than other browsers such as Firefox or Google Chrome. Therefore, if you sometimes use Internet Explorer and sometimes use another browser, you might have installed a different version of Flash Player for Internet Explorer than for other browsers.
red-line-22.png
3. Uninstall previous versions of Flash Player

Before you install Flash Player for any Windows browser, uninstall all previous Flash Player versions and restart your computer. Follow these steps:
  1. Uninstall all previous Flash Player versions and restart your computer. For Flash Player uninstall instructions, see Uninstall Flash Player (TechNote tn_14157).
  2. Restart your computer after uninstalling.
  3. If you are using Internet Explorer, continue to Verify Internet Explorer security and ActiveX settings. Otherwise, continue to Download and install Adobe Flash Player.

red-line-23.png
4. Verify Internet Explorer security and ActiveX settings (skip for other browsers)

Make sure that Internet Explorer security default level is set to Medium. This level allows viewing ActiveX controls, such as Flash Player. To set browser security to Medium, perform the following steps:
  1. Open Internet Explorer.
  2. Choose Tools > Internet Options.
  3. Select the Security tab.
  4. Select Trusted Sites zone.
  5. Select the Default Level button. (If the Default Level button is dimmed, continue to the next step).
  6. Move the slider until the security level is Medium.
  7. Select Apply.
  8. Select the Internet zone.
  9. Repeat steps 5 - 7. When done, select OK.
