Help a computer dummy.

My computer is telling me I need to download Flash Player as I cannot access all my games and some sites. Everytime I try, internet explorer and activeXcontrol stop me and will not allow it. I am at my wits end and do not know what to do. Help me. I am 57 and on a disabilty pension. I look forward to my crosswoeds and now cannot acess them.

    Thankyou both, Prayag78 and Johnyu05 for your answers. First Prayag78, I am using Windows Vista as that was what was installed on my computer when I got it. Adobe Flash Player tells me that it is compatable, but I do not think so. Thankyou for trying.

    Now Johnyu05, When I do click on the bar, for some reason I am not given the option to install anyway. I have tried this repeatedly. I have also gone into tools options and changed ActiveXcontrol to "promt' as directied by the trouble shoot help at the Adobe site. I have even tried to disable it all together. Nothing works. Do you know of any other flash player I can download for free with windows vista.?? Thankyou for trying to help me.I really do appreiciate it very much.

Hi shirls,
when you see that activeXcontrol, you will see an option there that says install, try to click it. or If you see the Yellow bar at the top, right click on it and select install.

Everytime I play farmville it freezes up

There are two possible reasons why farmville game freezes in your computer when attempting to load it.

First is your internet browser. You can tell if the internet browser is the one causing it. How? When you type in your browser, observe if it takes too long before it loads the Facebook log in page. If it does, then change your browser. Mozilla Firefox is highly recommended. Google chrome perform good too for Facebook site.

Secondly is Flash player. it is the one that manage the loading of games with 3d and animation. So if loads very fast in your internet browser, what you will need to do is upgrade the Adobe Flash player that is installed in your system. the latest version would be best.

Please rate. Thanks
