Windows 7: Adobe Flash Player 10.3

Uninstalled and reinstalled FP 10.3 twice with a restart after each operation. No go. Flash Player stuff either simply doesn't show or shows way out of position on the page. This is the very first time I've run across this problem (or any problem whatsoever) in all the years of using Flash Player with IE.

Anyone else experiencing this problem, and, if so, any suggestions as to what the problem is and how to fix it?

Got the same problem after upgrading as well

Doesn't bother me much though as I use Chrome as my default browser anyway, but it's a shame it wasn't found & reported during the beta phase.

For reference mine is IE9 on a 32-bit Windows 7 install.

I get flickering, and flash content being out of place.

Try https://browsercheck.qualys.com/

on scanning your PC (takes a couple of seconds ) it flags any issues you have and if you allow it updates Flash for you.

Didn't fix the issue for me stve. It def involves latest flash update, because everything was fine up to that point. I'll just use chrome or firefox till a cure comes along. Thanks for your effort, and the link to the browsercheck. I can see where it could be helpful in a diff scenario.

Give Chrome a solid week, and you'll forget that IE9 even exists!

Since 1981 (no, that's not a typo), every machine I've ever owned has been "Microsoft pure". This will be the very first time I've had to opt for the product of another maker where the product is one that Microsoft also makes.

Damn shame.

Thanks for your help.

Hi AC,

It isn't a Microsoft problem, I assure you. Your faith in MS is well-founded. My x64 machine runs it perfectly. There's something else wrong... have you tried running the pages you're trying to view in Compatibility View?

I have indeed tried Compatibility View (it was the very first thing I tried). No go.

I suspect you're right that it's not Microsoft's fault here but Adobe's. But as things stand, makes no difference whose fault it is. IE9 is simply unusable without a functioning Flash Player; ergo, my switch to Firefox 4 for as long as the IE9-FP10.3 problem persists.

oh man it's shame adobe took down 10.3 RC for IE 64bit, because that's working really well for me.

anyway, here is what i have; for IE-32bit, I have

Name: Shockwave Flash Object
Publisher: Adobe Systems Incorporated
Type: ActiveX Control
Version: 10.2.153.1


& for IE 64bit,

Name: Shockwave Flash Object
Publisher: (Not verified) Adobe Systems, Inc.

I fixed this problem on my computer by opening IE9-tools-advanced-then ticking use software rendering instead of gpu rendering. Apply and close.
