I use firefox4-- now I cant install adobe flash. (Had it before) It will download, run, and says installed, but it doesnt. I cant run videos on my emails or use the enhansed viewer on ancestry.


You need to install the latest version and make absolutely sure you have no prior Adobe Flash Player software installed in your system. Click on "start", then "control panel". Find "programs and Features" and right click on and open. Find all software with any reference to Adobe Flash Player and uninstall it. After uninstall, restart system, go back to programs and features and make sure all software for Flash Player is gone. Then go here;
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
When you go to download the player you need to make sure you're out of all apps taht will interfere with download,ie, Internet Explorer, MSN Messenger, Facebook, etc. If you are in something taht intereferes a window will open and give you a list if things to exit. Do this and you will see your list go away until good for download. Finish your download and restart. Go back to Programs and Features and look for Adobe Flash Player 10.

Hello, i would like to ask why my adobe flash player 10 crashed? my videos has no images only audio..please help,, thank you...


When tiy installed your Adobe 10 was it an upgrade on a new install? Whenever you upgrade or install the Flash player you have uninstall all prior versions first. What you might try is uninstall then reinstall. Java is important also.If you don't have it you should get it. If you do ahve it make sure it's updated. To update Java, Get into "control panel", right click on the Java icon and click on the update tab at the top of the window. Hopefully this works for you.

My widows is VISTA. I am trying to download ADOBE FLASH PLAYER 10. But it is not working now. So, tell me how i can download it. Shihab


Hi.
Here is what I found on the network regarding your problem.
It might help you.

Here's the scenario: you download the latest and greatest version of the Adobe Flash Player. After it finishes installing, you go to a site featuring Flash content and are greeted with a message notifying you that you need to install Flash Player, but didn't you just do that? To properly update your Flash Player, you need to run the installation as Administrator. Follow these steps to properly install Adobe Flash Player:
For Vista (32 bit):
1. Open Computer.
2. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\.
3. Scroll down and open the Macromed directory.
4. Open the Flash directory.
5. Right-click FlashUtil9b.
6. Select Run as Administrator.
7. When the UAC prompt appears, select Continue.
8. Follow the Flash Player installation wizard.
For Vista (64 bit):
1. Open Computer.
2. Navigate to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\.
3. Scroll down and open the Macromed directory.
4. Open the Flash directory.
5. Right-click FlashUtil9b.
6. Select Run as Administrator.
7. When the UAC prompt appears, select Continue.
8. Follow the Flash Player installation wizard.
Once the wizard completes, Flash Player has been properly installed and will now function properly.

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.

Try to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player Active X and Plug in and then reinstall it as there could be traces of previous versions in the computer which are interfering and making it difficult for the browsers to properly display videos on your computer. You can do this from the computer user settings and manipulating the "Add/Remove" programs list.

I have windows xp on my computer and I can't uninstall adobe 9.1.1, how can I get it off my computer?


Due to recent enhancements to the Adobe Flash Player installers, you can now remove the player only by using the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller. To remove Flash Player, simply download and run the appropriate uninstaller for your system using the steps below.
  1. Download the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller:
  2. Save the file to your system, choosing a location where you can find it (for example, your desktop). Macintosh users may need to open or unstuff the .hqx file.
  3. Quit ALL running applications, including all Internet Explorer or other browser windows, AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger, or other Messengers. Check the Windows system tray carefully to make certain no applications are still in memory which might possibly use Flash Player.
  4. Run the uninstaller. This will remove Adobe Flash Player from all browsers on the system.
Note: The uninstaller cannot remove files currently in use.
If you have any instances of the player open in your web browsers, instant messaging clients, stand-alone SWFs, or projectors, then the uninstaller will complete but some files may not be deleted. If this occurs, then close all of your applications and run the uninstaller again to ensure that all files are removed.
Note: Internet Explorer users may have to reboot to clear all uninstalled Flash Player ActiveX control files. If you're not certain, select the "Show Details" button in the Flash Player uninstaller. If there are any log lines that begin with "Delete on Reboot..." then you'll need to reboot BEFORE running the Flash Player installer again.
