If you are talking about Adobe Flash® CS3 Professional, then Adobe would have available any of the last patches for this. Since the software they are now running is over CS6 now, your CS3 version is old. Check here for latest patch for the CS3:

If you are are talking about Adobe Flash for IE or Firefox or Chrome, I would recommend you uninstall Adobe Flash using Adobe's special uninstaller located here: only after you use the "normal" uninstall process. (below)

Process to uninstall Adobe Flash for Browsers:

1: Using Start : Control Panel : Programs or Add/Remove programs : Programs and Features : Select Adobe Flash Player XX ActiveX and Uninstall it. (Right-click on this or select menu Uninstall)

2: Under Programs and Features still, select Adobe Flash XX NPAPI and Uninstall it (Right-click on this or select menu Uninstall)

3: Verify you do not see any more Adobe Flash Player listed. If so, remove those as well.

XX = Version number of Adobe Flash currently Installed. In my case, it is showing 19.

4: Close out of Programs and Features

5: Run the Adobe Flash special Uninstaller from the link provided above. This program will help remove any "left-over" files from Adobe Flash Player.

6: Reboot your system

7: If you have the CCleaner program, I would run that before step 8. If you do not have the free CCleaner program, you can skip this step

8: Try to download Adobe Flash Player again for your browsers. Even though you may not use IE, make sure you install that version first before your browser of choice. For me, I reinstall IE Adobe Flash Player, then I install Adobe Flash Player for Firefox.

Adobe Flash Player offline installer Website:

If you try this process your Adobe Flash Player should work again.

After you reinstall your Adobe Flash Player, test the install by going to this website with the browser of your choice:

Click on "start" then click on "control panel". Find and right click on "programs and features" and open. In the list you should see "Adobe Flash Player" with a number after it. If the munber is not 10 (Adobe Flash Player 10 Active X), then yiu need to unistall that and, dowmload and install it from here;
Make sure you restart after uninstall and again after install. If you want the Google toolbar, click on the box, I unclicked it incase you didn't want it.

I've had the same problem recently. The only fix I could find for it was uninstalling and reinstalling my browser. If you still use Internet Explorer I would suggest switching to Firefox or Chrome.

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

I am having a problem with taking games i've played off my list without it coming back again once i've played a game and went back to the list and it be there again.......can you help me?

Facebook runs best on Mozilla Firefox. So if it is not your software it will be hard to load up programs especially facebook games. And if you are using this browser, upgrade now to the latest version.

To load games easily, you will need to download special software that will help to load the graphic of games. Download Adobe Flash player and Adobe Shockwave Flash. Install this software and you will find it easy to play games with facebook.

download this files
1. Mozilla Firefox
2. Adobe Flash player
3. Adobe Shockwave Flash

Let me know if this files help you with your games. Please comeback and give me some ratings. Thank You for using Fixya.

How i can upgrade version of flash of farmville

You don't, you upgrade Flash.

But if you're using a portable device to play the Facebook game there is no solution. The newest version of Flash is not supported on any portable except maybe Andorid phones. On a PC you can just install the latest version of Flash from Adobe's site.
