I already install the adobe flash player, but still i cant play my games in facebook.


Perhaps the newest version of Adobe Flash Player isn't installed.

Sometimes you have to use the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller, then download, and install the newest version of Adobe Flash Player.
.
Adobe Flash Player may not automatically remove the old version. If the old version isn't removed, the new version won't install.

This is Adobe Support, (Adobe Support Center), and the download page for the Uninstaller,

http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html

On line 1 click on the blue - uninstall_flash_player.exe (229KB)

In the small box that comes up click on Save File.

Now in the other small window that comes up look at the heading at the top.
This is where the file will be downloaded to.
Write it down.

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads in the heading.
(Desktop, Documents, and Downloads for Vista, and Win7)

1) If it has Desktop in the heading the file will be on your desktop screen.

2) If it has My Documents in the heading, click on Start, then click on My Documents.

3) If it has Downloads in the heading, click on Start, click on My Documents, double-click on Downloads.

When you see the file name - uninstall_flash_player.exe - double-click right on it.
Follow the simple instructions of the Installation Wizard.
(Just click on Next, Next, and Finish)

When you are done restart your computer.
Now go back to Adobe, and download the newest version of Adobe Flash Player.

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

After you have installed the newest version restart your computer if it does not state so.

I have a problem with Adobe 9 on a new computer running Windows 7. In any browser with a pdf page, Adobe brings up a window with a question mark and OK box after which it goes blank or black and freezes.


I have fixed the problem by opening adobe going into accessibility setup assisstant and Set Adobe to not display in the browser under Adobe's internet settings. seems to working fine now.
Or can can try to install adobe again (just repair it when it asks)
Or you can install Foxit - another PDF reader that isn't as bloated as Adobe.

I can not get any audio on youtube.


make sure you have Adobe Flash player installed on your PC.
And that your browser isn't blocking the content.

If you can't hear sound within videos embedded on other websites or blogs,
your computer may be blocking third-party Flash content. To correct this, follow the steps below:
  1. Visit http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager03.html
  2. The Adobe Flash Player Settings Manager should display.
  3. Check the box labeled: "Allow third-party Flash content to store data on your computer."
  4. To ensure the check sticks please click one of the tabs at the top of that box and then click back to the (Global Storage Settings Panel). The box should still be checked.
  5. Once this is complete, close all browser windows and try playing an embedded video.
Please be advised that this action stores a Flash cookie on your computer. Flash enables this by default upon install.If this step doesn't help, please check your Antivirus and Firewall software to see if you're blocking third-party Flash content.

According to Microsoft's website Adobe 6.0 is not compatible with Vista. They suggest upgrading to Adobe 9, which they have listed as starting at $159, according to Adobe. I have a program I have used for that last few years from a company called Foxit software. It handles all my adobe needs from editing and creating documents to reading them. The software is free and I suggest you give it a try. The response time to open a document is at least 50% quicker than adobe, and it is not constantly need of updates every time you open it.

Here is the link from Microsoft
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/Details.aspx?type=Software&p=Adobe%20Acrobat%20Professional&v=Adobe&uid=6&pf=0&pi=1&c=business%20%26%20home%20office&sc=small%20business&os=32-bit

I m looking for recovery cd of my notebook TX 1301.


HP TX1301 - you should have got one with your computer or at least a utility on your computer which creates recovery discs using your own blank discs.

See this for Windows XP http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=bph08097

Windows Vista
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=&product=81351&docname=c00810334

If you are running Vista and you cant boot your computer , insert the vista installation disc into the drive , start the computer off the install disc , click repair my computer when you get the "Install Now" option to access vistas recovery tools from the disc

When opening a program adobe reader opens with a blank sceen and tells me that it could not open (the program) because it is not a supported file or it has been damaged


what file are you trying to open? adobe reader only opens documents in pdf and adobe format. when opening a program, right click then choose "open with" option, and select the appropriate program to open the file with. most of them open with internet explorer or ms word.

When I scan an exesting document through my printer into PDF Master I can not type in the blank lines that I need too fill in.


not sure if pdf master allows this functionality...but it may..you should consider upgrading adobe reader to allow this function to work.. www.adobe.com and downld the latest adobe reader.

also when you scan you need to specify that you want to take the fill in options.

only works on printed documents not hand written ones.

try paperport much better product.
