Adobe Flash Player continuing asking for install

Hi there, every time I get into a page that has a flash video, it ask me for installa flash player, then it works, but, why is not enough to install it only ones? why it ask me for reinstall each time a get a flash video on a page? Does the install not register correctly on windows 7 registry?

Thanks in advance.

If you are using the IE 8 64 bit browser then Adobe does not have a 64 bit plugin as yet.

I am using 32 bit version, flash player installs correctly ... but when I start Iexplorer later, and I access other web page with a flash video, it could not run the video and asks me to install flash player again, like if it doesn't register correctly on the registry on the previous install ... so I reinstall flash player from adobe page several times per day.

Try going to Filehippo.com and download the latest standalone install for Adobe for IE. Stop IE while installing.

Or you can just go to the Adobe FTP site and download any version you want.

Are you running Windows 7 x64? I understand you are using the 32 bit version of IE8, but I'm curious about your OS. Also, are you running any security applications?

I am running Windows 7 64 bits, IExplorer 32 bits. I have downloaded and installed Adobe Flash Player 10 from filehippo, but IExplorer continues asking me for install it each time I get into a page with a flash video.

If it's any comfort (but certainly not any help) My IE8 is doing this to me on my XP install. But IE8 on W7 is NOT.

It must be some kind of install glitch with the flash player checking it's own version number.

I'm assuming in my case that I had IE7 with flash installed, then upgraded to 8 then tried to upgrade flash again and the combination caused some wrong version setting to get stuck somewhere :/
