Can't Download Adobe Flash Player
« on: Fri Jul 08, 2011 - 00:03:35 »
Hello, helping me will certainly be a test of your patience since I am so computer duh.  This pc has Wndows Vista, 32 bit I think.  All was well, no problems whatsoever until it said here's the latest version of ie, download it and see how great it is!  So I did and then we couldn't watch anything on youtube or anywhere.  A window opened and said go here and download Adobe Flash Player 10.  What happened to the Adobe Flash Player we had???  We were watching with no trouble on the previous version of ie.

 So I clicked the link and couldn't download the flash player.  Read and read for days on end, tried to do what was suggested, but wasn't able to get it to download.  I tried so many things I don't even remember now what they were.

Then I went online to the techie sites and they were telling me things that were so far over my head I just gave up. I uninstalled the new ie and went back to the previous one but we still can't watch anything and I still can't get it to download Adobe Flash.  Could someone with a lot of patience please try to help me?  We haven't had even a tiny problem with this computer until I went for the new ie.  If anyone can help, it would be so appreciated.  Thanks in advance and I'll pray for your headaches.

Hi Lavender, try this link;

Click on Download Latest Version toward the right.
Then when the window comes up, click on run.

Hope it works.

Hello, thank you for your help.  I tried it and all went as though it had installed, but it didn't.   ::frown::

See if it is installed when you go to Add and Remove Programs.
If it is, uninstall it and run the installation again.
Maybe that will work.

Thanks so much for your help, Victor08.  Before I even got to read your second post there was an ad between the posts with a link that had something to do with the drivers?  Went there and ran that and it did something because when I came back to my pc tonight I went poking around here and there and for some reason (don't have a clue) I clicked tools, manage add-ons, clicked and going through the list found Adobe Shockwave Flash Object - disabled!  Guess you know I enabled it in a hurry. It had installed because the date was there, but for some reason it was disabled.

That did it!  I immediately went to youtube tried it and it worked.  HalleluYAH!!!  ::clappingoverhead::    ::disco::  Thank you, and whoever is responsilble for that link to fix the drivers.  You guys are great.
