Flash Player not working on any browser - IE - Chrome - Firefox.

All are the latest browsers, have removed and reinstalled Flash palyer so many times it ain't funny. Causing problems with Farmville and quite a few other sites. It just seems not to work.

Running Win 7 Home.

Please help.

Welcome aboard, Aljesh

Are the flash players not working at all, or they are crashing in between ?

No not really, only once I have managed to get a showing that something is working. But you got to the test pages or youtube or any flash videos and it doesn't work.

Follow the instructions for Uninstall Flash Player , and then Install Adobe Flash Player again.

Install Flash, then uninstall using Revo in Advanced mode: Revo Uninstaller - How toTo Completely Uninstall Programs

If that fails, create a new User account to try installing Flash. Does it work now?

Does Flash work on other sites besides the ones you mentioned. I like greg like to use REVO. If you don't get rid of the old ones completely before installing the new ones you can have problems. Many programs have uninstallers that don't do a good enough job in my opinion. Sometimes Windows 7 add and remove doesn't do a complete uninstall either. Also take a look in your downloads using Windows Explorer and see if you have any Flash exe. files in there. If so remove them with a right click and delete.

What does it show if you test flash version?

Find version

Does it show flash player is installed and working?

Boot into safe mode with Networking

Safe Mode

In safe mode open any of the browsers, surf to youtube and try and play any video (you likely will not have sound). Do videos play? If so, try a clean start to see if they will play in normal mode with minimal services/startup items.

Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

If that also works, you have something conflicting. Follow the tute to enable items and track down what is interfering.

No flash does not work on anything else. Even more so now. Youtube just won't display and play anything. Other test sites don't display.
