Flash player problems -XP

Hello,

I run windows XP and I am running into problems when my browser tries to load flash.

With IE 7, On some sites that require the latest version of flash, it asks me to download the latest version of the flash player. Even after I installing the latest version, it still asks me to download.

WIth Firefox 2, Flash player crashes or does not load when loading websites such as abc.com video player.

When i try to view sites that have video content it will be blank and tell me to download the newest version of adobe flash player, but when i try to do that the green processing bar either goes nowhere or it says that installation is complete but the completion video can't run and it brings me back to square one

Hello,

You can uninstall Flash Player from Control Panel/Add Remove and then in FF you can go to Toos/Add Ons from the menu bar and if Flash Player is still listed , click on uninstall.

Once it is uninstalled use a Registry Cleaner to mop on data debris before proceeding further. If you need one let me know I'll send you a link.

Let me know if you get stuck doing this or let me know when you're done by commenting back and I'll guide you further.

Regards,
Worldvet

    Hello,

    If any of you have installed SP3 for XP, then this is your problem. Microsoft has just acknowledged this fact a determined by Symantec when man people expected that had acquired a virus. Note, that his failure in SP3 leaves Flash Player vulnerable to a backdoor attack on your computers.

    My best advice is to go to Control Panel/Add Remove Programs and uninstall SP3, run a virus scan from an online scanner, uninstall Flash Player, run Registry Fixer and fix the problems it finds and then reinstall Flash Player.

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

Adobe Flash Player is a cross-platform browser-based application runtime.

I'm running Windows XP. Using IE8, the youtube videos won't play. There is no warning or anything, just the video is black and there is no play button. On Google chrome, there is no problem with playing...


Well Sunkengarden, the videos you are watching on YouTube or any such websites are the Flash Player Applications. That means, the Browser on which you are trying watch the videos, needs Flash Player Application to be installed on your computer. Such traditionally most widely used flash players are Adobe Flash Player and Microsoft Silverlight.
While you are using Google Chrome, there is no problem just because of Google Chrome already have in-built flash player within it. But the problem remains for IE or other Browsers.
Different Web-Browsers use different types of Adobe Flash Players (IE type or Non-IE type). So, for best results, I recommend you to install both the IE and Non-IE Adobe Flash Players on your computer to have all the browsers play the videos without any problem.
Download the Flash Players by clicking on the following links:
Hope this helps,
Regards, Mrityunjay.

My you tube can't load on this computer.


Hello
The browser you are using may not response on some sites due to virus infection, clean your system with updated virus remover, if problem persists then try some other browser like Opera, Google Chrome etc.
Google Chrome is the best for YouTube viewing.
Good Luck

Says adobe flash player wont run on a 64 bit system, since having new laptop with windows 7, keeps saying adobe flash player cannot operate on a 64 bit system, so wont load zynga poker


Flash does work on Windows 7 64 bit, it just runs in 32 bit mode. Try using a 32bit version of the browser you use and installing flash there. Also make sure you are installing the latest version of the authentic adobe flash from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Try opening Internet Explorer and install adobe flash player from there, then open up Firefox once the installation has finished and it should update there as well.
