Q: Adobe Flash

I have Windows 7 64 bit and I am having trouble installing Adobe Flash. I looked on the Adobe site and it tells me to go to Start and select IE 32 bit. I have two programs of IE. One is clealy marked 64 bit and the other should be 32 bit. However no matter which version I select the 'About' states that they are both 64 bit.
I'm not sure what to do now but the bottom line is that I need Flash but do not know how to install it.
Has anyone any ideas please?

Preferred Solution: Adobe Flash

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

We have IE Say a user goes to MSN com The ad on the right is a Flash object Some of our users will see that object flickering when scrolling up or down on the page or when hovering their mouse over it It's quite annoying Almost all users are running Adobe Flash Player but I think I've seen this happen on systems with Macromedia Flash Player as well Other systems don't have the problem I've seen this happen on one system and not another while both seemed to have the same Flash objects installed Uninstalling all Flash players using Adobe's prescribed Flash Player uninstall tool seems to work at first but users later complain again Note that they just about always end up installing Flash Player again because sites ask for it I don't believe I've seen Adobe Object Flash V.

A:Ie 6 - Flash Objects Flickering - Using Adobe Flash Player 9 Activex R28 (shockwave Flash Object V.

More info: Adobe Flash Player 9, Macromedia Flash Player 8, and Macromedia Flash Player 10 all produce the same result--Flash objects that flicker when you put your mouse over any part of them. Moving Flash objects will flicker constantly while moving and stop flickering when the animation is done. SWF files (at least the one at work without a problem when using Adobe Flash Player 9.

If I don't have Adobe Flash Player 9 installed, the Win2K machines prompt me to install them for almost any site that uses Flash (I guess most recent Flash objects cannot be viewed with the older Macromedia Flash Players).

Any suggestions?

My friend recently asked me to help her download some music video flv files from the website MTVIggy. I normally use Orbit Downloader for saving flv's I like from youtube but it doesn't seem to work on this site. I've tried a program called Replay Media Catcher but ut also doesn't work. Does anyone know of a program/tool that is actually capable of downloading the flv files from MTVIggy?

Thank you for your help. It is greatly appreciated.

A:How to record rtmp:// flash video .flv stream from embedded Adobe Flash Player

As the site is owned by Viacom/MTV, my guess is that it is DRM (Digital Rights Management) protected and videos can't be downloaded. I normally use Real Player when I need to download embedded videos but I don't think it will work and I'm not aware of a free product that will download DRM protected videos.

A:Adobe Flash uninstall tool,& is there a better/safer flash player w/o the hassles?

The flash player for IE and Firefox is in C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash. The IE one is called Flash9f.ocx and for Firefox its NPSWF32.dll.

You can view current version, by going to a page with a flash object on the web page, right click on the Flash object and select About Adobe Flash Player 9 and it will take you to Adobe site and display version.
You can also get version from the files about on the Version or Details tab of its properties.

As for removal, just either use the Uninstall tool in the same folder (See above) or delete all the files in the folder to remove it.

What's the big difference if any between shockwave player and flash player? I see both in the control panel.

However, one says I have flash player 10, but I have just now downloaded their newest version 10.1. And that's been the second time at least for the same update. ??

The other says I have shockwave player 11.5. Both are Adobe.

By the way, in the control panel and over on the right side, there's a column that lists how often used and also where you can delete a program. But with the new version, altho it's listed as loaded on the left side, the right is blank except for the word delete. In other words, no listing for size like all the other programs.

After doing quite a bit of reading today,I decided that the Adobe PDF viewer is a resource hog. I uninstalled any traces of it I could find in my add/remove programs part of my pc. Just a few minutes ago while reading another post here at BC, I discovered I had to install Adobe Flash player to view an article thru YouTube.
My question is how does flash differ from the pdf viewer? They're both an Adobe thing,right?

I opted to download a small viewer called Sumatra,by the way.

A:Adobe Shockwave 11.5 & Adobe Flash 10 - do I need?

Hi, Adobe shockwave and flash are fundamental for experiencing the whole Internet.

Without Shockwave and flash almost no Internet games would work, most online Videos won't work (YouTube won't work unless you ask it to load the movie in HTML 5 from and tons of other stuff wouldn't work to its full potential.

You can live without these 2 plugins from Adobe (1 of my friends doesn't have them installed for moral reasons) but I wouldn't recommend it until HTML 5 really becomes wide spread.

A:why can't I get Adobe Flash...I always had it?

"tried following instructions"No idea what instructions you mean or what they were.Go here (from each browser if you have more than one) and see what version is installed: necessary get the latest version from the blue link named "Player download center" in the text just above the table.If that doesn't help let us know what browser you are using and whether it is the same if you try an alternative browser (such as Firefox). That might give us some clues.Your spec says Windows 7 but you have posted on Win 8 - which is it? If it's Windows 8 you should be getting flash updated as part of Windows. However on the blue link it should be possible to download a "full flash file", Save it somewhere then double click the downloaded file to install flash. This sometimes works when all else fails.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

Is there a better alternative to Flash? If not, are there ways that I can manage it?

A:Do I need Adobe Flash

Adobe Flash Player is needed to view most of the videos on the Web, including YouTube. There's a setting making it update all by its own so you shouldn't be getting any prompts. Furthermore, it's used for online games and other animations. In a nutshell, it's just about everywhere on the Internet, and without it, the experience will be quite different.

Hi grits.Go to Adobe and your OS and browser should be automatically detected. Just click Agree and Install. NEVER NEVER just delete stuff. Anything that can be removed will be in Control Panel ADD/REMOVE and should be uninstalled from there. BUT - Do not uninstall anything unless you are positive it is safe to do so. Most upgrades will simply overwrite existing files so you do not have to do any more. Turn off your browser before installing this upgrade.An exception to this is Java which writes a complete new version each time so you do have to uninstall all older versions. (Latest is JAVA 6 Update 10).Those scans are handy as a guide only. A stray . or 0 will throw the results out so do not rely on them.Cheers

PSI just complained that my Flash wasn't secure, but the version that it detects is the one previous to the one installed, according to Program And Features. The one shown installed is the current one.

I had this problem when I first installed PSI, but found that when I installed Flash in a video player that I oft use, that is not a browser, that it declared that all was well.

At this point, I have no idea of where that older version might be installed, nor why PSI didn't complain about it before? How can one determine where all installation point might be?

Right was tweaking pc last night ever so slightly..

Every thing was working great..

Booted up pc this morning and notice a few small problems

Like 'flash' not working. It just stays blank no load icon or nothing? Just idle.

I tried updating it etc etc/ And google the probling tried those things but a no go-er . Kind of confusing really and frustrating..

Any help on this matter


A:Adobe Flash

look at the internet options and just with one test site. put it at its lowest setting and check againg if it works , if by then it works . you have found the problem if not
reinstall flash player i would say

but it seems that the browser isnt loading the plugin propperly in general . and that would be solution

what more problems did you have ?

eventually if that doesnt work just use windows system restore and go back to when it did work .

and redo the tweaks a step at a time

good tweaking its end result is mighty fine , how ever it also takes lot of time mostly

hope this helps

I have Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit. I received a pop up which said there is an update available for Flash. I went into system requirements and I saw Vista 32 bit as one of the OSs; 64 bit is not listed. I've always downloaded updates to Flash in the past but lately it looks like Adobe has revamped the download process. I used to get just a dialog box and then download the update; now it takes you to their website. Anyway, is it OK to download a 32 bit Flash to 64 bit Vista? Maybe I've always been downloading 32 bit; it never occured to me to check because of the way the download used to work. Thanks.

A:Adobe Flash 32 bit?

Flash Player is for your web browser, so, yes, you still need the 32-bit version because your web browser is 32-bit, even on 64-bit Windows.You only need Flash Player 64-bit if you want to use the 64-bit version of Internet Explorer which is included with 64-bit Windows.

Everytime I visit a site that uses Adobe Flash, it tells me I need to update to the latest version.. I download and re-install, and it works for awhile.. But eventually it asks me to update to the latest version again.. I keep updating to the same version, there is nothing new.. Why does it keep asking me to update, when I have the latest version?

A:Adobe Flash keeps asking to update

Try downloading, and running the latest stand alone Flash Uninstaller: |MG| Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller Download

Then do the same with the latest Flash version:
IE - Download Flash Player (IE) -
Non IE - Download Flash Player (Non-IE) -

Then once you have done this, go to: control panel > Flash Player and in the flash settings, select "don't look for updates to flash". If you do this, you'll be responsible for checking for flash updates every so often yourself. You can do that be bookmarking this site: Adobe - Flash Player

Adobe Flash will not stay installed on my system.
I have Windows 7 Ultimate - 64 bit with ie9.
Everytime I start my system, I have to install Flash PLayer.
When I shut it down, it deletes the program but the flash icon is present in control panel when I restart my system.
I have uninstalled Adobe Flash and reinstalled the lastest dwonload but it will not stay installed. When I save the program to "my documents or desk top and run the program, the icon disappears and the program installs only to delete upon shutting down.

first use the Adobe uninstaller. Do not reinstall, yet.

Uninstall Flash Player | Windows

Next, run sfc /scannow

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let me know if it found anything.

Every time I open a website on Chrome or, I see a pop-up saying that Adobe Flash Player was blocked because it is out of date. On Firefox, a pop-up also says that Firefox has prevented the unsafe plugin "Adobe Flash" from running the web page that I visit. It is really annoying. How can I solve this issue?

My Adobe Flash Player is no longer working. Everytime I try to install the Adobe Flash Player 10.1 I get this message: The installation encountered errors: The ActiveX control for Flash Player could not be registered. I have tried using the uninstall flash drive from Adobe's website and it will not work.

Please Help!

I installed the latest version of Adobe Flash Player from , but when I go on youtube to watch videos, it doesnt work and says that "you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player". I then checked on Add/Remove Programs to se eif I've got Flash player, and it doesnt say I do. It only says: "Adobe Flash Player Active X"... not just "Adobe Flash player".

I installed Norton 360 yesterday, and since then youtube videos havent been working.

Someone please help.

I am runing Windows XP SP2 and am unable to install Flash Player from any source. I used the uninstaller successfully (I believe) but no luck. Has anyone had to resort to editing the registry for permission problems or am I missing something easier?

In my other computer, I use FF 36.0.1 and have installed the latest version of Adobe Flash player for FF. Recently, I been having a lot of problems when trying to watch videos from YouTube or sites that require Flash to be on (ESPN). Right now, I have it on (Ask to Activate), so sites that don't require it, it's fine, but when the sites do require it and I allow it, the pages tend to hang for a long time, and I tend to get the message "Unresponsive script" and I'll get the option to Continue, Debug, or Stop script. I've tried pressing continue or stop, but the pages tend to hang for a very long time, and no videos appear. I've tried uninstalling Flash then re-installing it, but the problem still persists. Would appreciate someone's help with this matter.

BTW, the computer is a Compaq Presario C700 using Vista (32-bit) with 2GB.

I have Adobe flash player 9 installed on my computer. I am having trouble with the flashplayer addon. I didnot add it it is just there. This computer was a 98 when i bought it. I have upgraded to windows xp sp2. I installed internet explorer 7 on it. Seems like when I have internet explorer 6 installed I donot have this problem. But there are certain sites that will not work without internet explorer 7. I don't know what to do. Any advice would be appreciated. Happy New Year. Darlene Mitchell.
