I to am unable to download anything from the internet or view any video's. Tried to update or reinstall Adobe flash player and it will not download from the Adobe site or the Microsoft site. Cannot view video's from any site including through my E-mail. All was fine until XP sp-3 was installed through automatic updates and shortly thereafter my E-mail program was updated by my DSL service I have set my security setting to the lowest setting but to no avail. Still no downloads of anykind. Can you give me any suggestions. Thank you in advance, JJ

Disable all add-ons to your browser. TOOLS>MANAGE ADD-ONS
Clear browsing History, temp files, and cookies. TOOLS>INTERNET OPTIONS>BROWSING HISTORY
If Adobe still will not work....
Go to CONTROL PANEL>ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS>SET PROGRAM ACCESS AND DEFAULTS and choose windows media or realplayer as your default media player...it is just as likely that an Adobe update caused this as SP3.

Hello,

Check for Highjackers, Malware, Viruses, or anything else that could have screwed with the OS. Sounds to me you had something wrong with your computer before SP3 was added. Personally if it was me I would back up all my data to a CD or thumb drive and wipe the computer clean and start over. You could try System Restore and remove SP3 but that only bandaids the issue.

Have a good one.

How do I uninstall acercaDe.dll? or install flash player.


I'm shooting from the hip, but, on a video problem, the puzzle piece usually comes from the browser being unable to use Adobe Flash or Microsoft Silverlight.

1. Make sure your computer is getting automatic updates from Microsoft.

2. Download and install the latest version of Flash from
www.adobe.com.

I apologize for the sketchy reply. If you need help with either of these, post again here, and I'll amplify.

Can't download adobe flash player nor can I. View you tube material


Hi

You don't say which operating system you are using.

You don't say where you are trying to download Flash Player from. If it is not from the official Adobe site, then the source file may be corrupted.

Flash Player may be installed/partially installed but corrupted and the download can't rectify the corrupted files.

Flash player is required to view YouTube Video clips. This is why you cannot use Youtube properly until you have resolved the Flash Player problem.

Uninstall Flash Player and all its components in Add or Remove Programs > restart the computer > download and install the latest version of Flash Player from:

www.adobe.com

Restart your computer after the download > try YouTube again.

Update Flash Player regularly to keep it up to date (you should get regular alerts to update).

I hope this helps.

I can't see youtube movies


Some countries have banned Youtube.com, and if it happen on your country, you should not watch youtube video.
If not, You should update the latest flash player and make sure that the internet is connected. Or you can download these Youtube videos to your computer with Aneesoft Free Youtube downloader.

Trying to download adobe flash player 10.1 but the internet explorer keeps blocking it...maliscious content....not sure what happen to my old flash player...but can't view anything on you tube...happened...


Internet Explorer is telling you that the content *MAY* be malicious, not that it *IS* malicious. Click "allow" to install the Adobe Flash Player.

Get sound fine but video wants to start, then


just go to the adobe website and click on the update flash player button, it should automatically update your flash play. Alternativly use this link to download and install it manually.

http://download.cnet.com/Flash-Player/3000-2378_4-10001055.html

That should sort out the problem, sometimes your web browser will block the updates from Adobe due to security restrictions. Also you need to be an administrator on your computer to install the update.
