Windows 7: Adobe

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

If you want to keep using IE 9 64 you could switch to the YouTube HTML5 Video Player most videos have been converted to it & its much faster & responsive than the Flash version.
YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
If you join the trial all videos will play using the HTLM5 player to use Flash again for YouTube videos you have to return to the page & opt out.

First it was the continous download problem, got lots of answers, but all were beyond my brain. Thanx for trying.

Now a major problem. I use Adobe flash player & Adobe Reader all the time.

I have Win7 64 bit & IE9 64 bit. I have been try for 3 days to either of these running on my computer. They were working perfectly & sudenly they stopped working. Adobe RDR gives error 1606 & Flash saya will not run on 64 bit IE.

It gives 2 MS urls, both are not available, & Adobe solutions are betond me.

It seems Adobe is at war with MS.

In the meantime I can't play online videos & can't open PDF files.

Any easy solutions to this?

Why doesn't Adobe have solutions for these problems?

Are there any alternatives to Adobe?

Tully Again!

Finally I woke Up!

I just did a restore to a point about a month ago & behold every thing WORKS!!

You guys tried!! THANX

Not exactly sure what you did other than a restore point but happy you sorted the issue.

The restore may have gone back to a point where the shortcuts for IE were pointing to the proper, 32-bit executable.

A very good alternative to Adobe reader is PDF-XChange Viewer its in a different league as regards speed.

From my experience; I've always seen the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of IE right next to each other by default in Windows 7 64-bit. Under Start > All Programs (In the top section that is above the program folders). I've attached a screenshot of how mine looks.
