Are all my files will also deleted or corrupted if i uninstall the flash player??

Nope, Uninstalling Adobe Flash Player will simply cause your youtube videos and other things requiring flash player to stop working. You can also easily reinstall Flash Player without any damage being done to anything if needed.

I hope I was able to assist. If I was, please don't forget to rate my solution.

I keep getting this error: adobe flash player installer/ uninstaller 10.1 r10.2 has stopped working Its making everything run slow and the view of pages are very odd and plain.

Please try these steps:
1. Try to uninstall flash player by use Add/ Remove programs.(Start - Control Panel- Add/Remove Program)
2. Go to Adobe website download latest version of Flash Player and installer it. Adobe Website will verify the installation for you. Go here for the Flash Player

This can be done under administrator account only. If new message say you can't uninstall because program is in use, please open Task Manager and End Flash Player task then keep doing the uninstallation.
Hope this will help.
Thanks for reading.

My yahoo messenger application is not responding

Use info below to delete present version completely then if you want to try 9 again and are using Vista go here for help.

Messenger 9 for Vista users and XP users with 9, Mess 9 has many unsolved problems and missing features that messenger 8.1 or 8.0 has. Plus now the updated Windows Firewall will not let Messenger download correctly.And is causing 9 users to have problems now.. The only option that might help is going to the control panel and turning off the firewall to download and install then turning it back on.Then click on windows fire wall, Exceptions tab. make sure messenger is checked,if not listed then add it to the list.then click save.
.If the fire wall still causes problems,then revert back to 8.1 or 8.0 these and all versions of messenger can be found here;
You need to remove version 9,or present version, 1st to get another version to work. To remove Messenger version Use Unwise located middle of page of Messenger Folder.Make sure Automatic is checked! then continue to uninstall..Or use control panel ,Vista-program features or XP-add/remove this is the 2nd best way. If you just delete the Yahoo file to remove messenger,you will also lose the shared file that contains things needed on other Yahoo sites. Your contacts are stored online But if you want to save your old messages archives,they are saved on your PC in the messenger file you are about to delete.Go here and copy them to a new folder
Start>my computer>c:drive>program files>yahoo>messenger>profiles>(your ID)>archive>messages
The latest update for Flash Player to #10 Is causing things to not load,Can not log in,or Messenger just crashes upon opening..Use the link below for a download of Flash player # . You have to remove the present flash player,add/remove programs in control panel,Reboot then download from here.

Display driver r300

First try uninstalling the r300 driver from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find and reinstall the driver automatically. Then adjust the hardware acceleration to the highest setting. If these don't work, then go to or and download a couple of video playing software programs. On second thought, go ahead and down load the video software, it won't hurt anything, all it will do is help. Look under the video section at these sites, and download the video players for the internet. This software aids in watching internet based video.
