Windows 7: Problem with Adobe Flash

Problem with Adobe Flash

I have installed Adobe Flash in IE8 (32 bit) on my Win 7 Premium Home 64 bit system. Periodically I get messages from various web sites that I don't have Flash installed. If I re-install Flash that web site works but I later get prompted again to install Flash. It happens on numerous pages one example is the Finance graphs in Yahoo like L-3 COMM HLDGS INC Share Price Chart | LLL - Yahoo! Finance

I would any suggestions on this. I get tired of haing to install Flash over and over. I am downloading/installing Flash directly from Adobe so I presume I am getting the latest version every time.

Help please,

Frank

You could try these steps

I would remove all the version of Flash using Flash uninstaller and Active X Control
Run the CCLeaner
Reboot the download the lastest version of Flash then reinstall it

Check our Sticky thread by Shawn Latest Version of Adobe Flash Player

Hope this helps

Hi Frank.

1.Type "Internet Options" into Start (No quotes) and press enter.

2. Click the "Programs" tab.

3. Click "Manage Add-Ons"

4. Under "Show", select "All Add-Ons"

5. Find Flash in the list. (IF FLASH ISN'T THERE THEN OPEN INTERNET EXPLORER, CLICK TOOLS, THEN CHOOSE INTERNET OPTIONS AND START FROM STEP 2.)

6. Right-Click and choose Enable.

If that doesn't work, try installing a different browser from here: http://www.sevenforums.com/browsers-...-browsers.html

The problem may just be IE.

I've had some issues with flash and IE 8 too.
In my particular situation, it worked to update Flash to version 10.1. This is a beta version that has to be secifically searched for. (it handles HD video better with certain nVidia cards...some ATI cards too, I think.)

Anyway, research your video card and Flash 10.1 a little. If it looks like this may help, then, here's Adobe's link to v. 10.1
Adobe Labs - Downloads: Flash Player 10.1

Good luck

btw, the yahoo page you linked to showed up fine in my broweser, IE8 w/7 64 bit.

Thanks. I have done the uninstall then reinstall routine before and that did not help. I uninstalled again and this time reinstalled the beta version Bumpus mentioned. I will try it out andreport back.

I still am having problems with Flash. I have used the above mentioned Adobe uninstaller to remove Flash followed by re-boot followed by re-installation of Flash. I have done this procedure (remove-reboot-reinstall) a dozen or more times. I continue to get messages that Flash is not installed when I browse to pages with Flash.

If anyone has other ideas why the Flash install does not "stick" I would appreciate your help. Thanks
