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.

Check for updates or just update adoe flash player
Adobe Flash Player allows users to view videos made with Flash, a common online video format that can be viewed by both Mac and PC users.

Because technology is consistently emerging, Adobe frequently updates its Flash player. Downloading an update is free, and may be required in order to watch videos online.

You will need at least 128 MB of RAM available on your computer to update Flash player, and Internet Explorer version 6.0 or later for Windows XP, version 7.0 or later for Windows Vista and Internet Explorer 8.0 or later for Windows 7.

Open Internet Explorer and navigate to Adobe's Flash player download site.
Click the download link and follow the instructions on your screen.


Click "Allow" or "Install" if your security system asks if you want to download the file.
Avoid running other programs while the download is going on.

Flash player tests itself by showing you a brief video when the download is complete.
If you do not see this video, the player has not been successfully installed and you must try the download again.

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
or you might try
http://adobe-flash-player-non-ie.soft32.com/
11.4.402.278Free
Adobe Flash Player is a cross-platform browser-based application runtime.

Unable to view youtube vids , it says that I require adobe flash player. When I try to download adobe,it tells me I do not have system requirements. Also unable to re-calibrate touchpad. Have tried reset?


http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
You may need Java. The first link is for Java. The second link is for Flash Player. You must make sure you don't have any prior versions of either app. If you have Java, Find your Java icon, click on it and click on update tab. When installing Flash player you ahve to be out of all other windows and not signed in to anything that will interfere ie, messenger. If something is stopping you downlaod, a window will come up telling you what it is. You can get out of that app and finish download.

Could someone please tell me why I can't install adobe flash player 9 on an Acer Aspire T180-0A7Z? I keep being told that installation is complete, however when I go to play a video, it asks me to...


  1. Restart: In some situations, Windows or Internet Explorer needs to be restarted in order to complete an update. Restart your machine, and test Flash Player before moving to Step 2.
  2. Reinstall: Refer to the steps in Try this first: How to fix almost all Flash Player issues.
  3. Repair the browser: The next most common cause of problems is an error with the browser. Often a browser upgrade or changes to the browser may require a browser repair and reinstallation of Flash Player.

    To repair Internet Explorer: Choose Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. Choose the browser from the list of programs, click Change/Remove, and choose the Repair option. Restart after repairing the browser, and follow steps in Try this first: How to fix almost all Flash Player issues to reinstall Flash Player again. If Internet Explorer does not appear on the Add/Remove list, Repair is not an option, and you should move on to the next step.

    Other browsers: Follow the steps above to see if your browser has a Repair option; if it does, repair it. If your browser (such as Netscape) does not have a Repair option, you must reinstall the browser in order to repair it. Try Steps 4 through 7 first before moving on to Step 8 to reinstall the browser.
  4. Security level: Your Internet Explorer security level may be set to High or a custom level which does not allow viewing of ActiveX controls.

    To view your Security level, from within Internet Explorer, choose Tools > Internet Options, and in the Security tab, choose Internet.

    Though your browser security settings should be chosen by you or your system administrator, the Medium: Default Level will allow you to view Flash content. For any Custom Level, ensure that both "Download Signed ActiveX controls" and "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" are not disabled. (Enable or Prompt will work).
  5. Permissions: Your permissions may not allow you to install ActiveX controls or plug-ins. If this is a possibility, refer to Permissions can affect installing Adobe Flash Player for more information.
  6. Update your video drivers: This step is especially important if you experience a freeze or crash when installing or using Flash Player. Right-click on your Desktop and choose Properties > Settings > Advanced > Adapter to view the manufacturer's name. Refer to the manufacturer's website to download drivers or for assistance with installing the latest drivers.
  7. Reinstall the browser: Download and install the latest version from your browser manufacturer's website. Download and install the latest Flash Player from the Flash Player Download Center.
