Try Firefox web browser | Faster, more secure, & customizable, that way your getting the latest up to date version.

Ok. I'll give it a try.

Thanks.

P.S. I did download the 64bit version of Flash not the 32bit version. It took a bit of poking around to find it, but it was there.

Not sure why you still think there's a 64 bit version of flash for Windows.

There isn't. Guess you read right over the posts in the thread.

Majorgeeks is an official mirror of Firefox and other Mozilla Software, so they get it at the same time, or even before it is posted to Mozilla's main pages.

Ok. I'm back.

I uninstalled the x64 of FF. Went through the regedit and VERY carefully took out everything that had Firefox in it, nothing else. Then just to make sure, I went through again deleting all mentions of Shritoko and Norokmora (i can't remember the spelling of the names, sorry).

Then I rebooted. I had downloaded a copy of the latest FF before rebooting and I did install, in the 64bit version the FEBE extension and backed up my bookmarks, passwords, history, etc. I then ran the installation and presto, it worked. I was running Firefox. Went straight to the add-ons page, installed FEBE and restored everything I had backed-up.

I have everything working now. Thanks Deacon and Airbot.

Thanks to everyone who chipped in.

I have here a couple of links that I followed to get the 64bit flash:

Adobe Labs - Adobe Flash Player 10.1
Flash Player on 64-bit operating systems

zigzag3143, yes I did start FF in safe mode, and id did run but, of course, without all my add-ons etc which make life easier.

I'm just glad I have it working before going off on my travels again.

Thanks again, everyone.

Yeah, when you had this posted at the time, there wasn't any 64 bit flash, at least that anyone knew about. Then it was actually announced amazingly day later.

Adobe previews 64-bit Flash Player 'Square'

You must have got wind of it before it went publicly known. So I take back my "there is no 64 bit flash speech."

Glad you got it worked out.

Just got lucky. I got so p***ed off with the whole thing so I spent a few hours searching and digging.
