Hi, Dino.

I suggest that you uninstall FlashPlayer once again from your computer using Adobe's program located at How to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plug-in and ActiveX control. Following that, check Add/Remove programs to ensure there are no other instances of Flash Player installed.

Shutdown/restart your computer and then install the latest version of Flash Player for IE and alternate browsers:
After the installation is complete, verify the Flash Player version for each browser installed at About Flash Player page.
