Ie8 And Adobe Flash Player

I work on windows xp family. I've already installed adobe flash and macromedia players on my computer. Other browsers (chrome and firefox) work fine. But when i try to open a video clip, youtube for eg, in ie8, it displays a message that i need to install flash player. When i try to install again the later, the activex control warning message remains unresponsive on click and short while later, ie freezes showing the message that the site wants to install a module that can hurt your computer.

Leaving no means to install the player! Ultimately, i am brought to close ie through the task manager. I've uninstalled and re-installed ie8, but the same result!I wonder if ie has got any problem with the flash player? Or is there something that i am missing?Thanks for the reply.

Adobe Flash Player Not Working On Ie8

I have a 64-bit version of windows ultimate vista. Flash videos worked fine before upgrading from internet explorer 7 to ie8, now website videos such as msnbc, weatherbug display a message that a newer version of adobe flash is required. I install the download from the adobe site (message successful) but the message persists, no video. On 64 vista os, does the ie8 browser upgrade install a 64-bit browser that is incompatible with the adobe flash player? 

Adobe states that 64-bit browser support is pending post version 10, but not currently available. How does one determine if the ie8 browser is 64 bit or 32 bit? Is it possible to run in 32-bit mode for flash enabled sites? Update 8/6/09. My flash player is now version 10. X and the default ie8 version that i use is 32bit vice 64bit. That combination works with flash video.

Cannot Use Adobe Flash Player On Ie

Using windows xp home edition sp2 on ie8. I begin. It was all working fine until either an upgrade to ie8 or when switching from avast free to avast license. Following reference from various forums, i downloaded and saved from adobe the uninstall and install files as attempting to directly install from adobe site did nothing. Not much success, even when disabling all from the tray and disabling av. Finally, used file hippo and downloaded version 10. 1. 51. 66. When i check on adobe version test the site asks to run add on. 'adobe flash player 10. 1d51'

When confirmed it sees the player as the correct version and names the operating system as xp. When i go to manage add ons shockflash object is there. Double click it and the remove all sites button is highlighted. I click on this to allow all sites and close. However, try you tube and it dont work. Go to, for instance, club penguin and its looking for a flash player.come out of ie, try again and shock flash object is not in the currently loaded add ons, back to adobe version test and again its looking to run the previous add on that i've just allowed for all websites!

Please help. Easy solution is to use firefox, which works perfectly fine but ie is essential for home schooling do i have an active x problem?Internet security settings seem ok. Using avg free as av

Ie8 Adobe Flash Display Problem

I am having some display difficulties with adobe flash with some ie 8 browsers on both vista and win xp. Here is the description. On a test site we get skewing of some (not all) flash movie modules. The whole module is moved out to the right. The specifics with regard to the environments are – win xp and vista, latest version of ie 8, latest version of the flash player. This doesn't happen with all ie 8 browsers. In fact on one test machine we can log in via one account (an administrator account) and the site displays ok with no skewing.

But when we log in via another account (a non administrator account) it is skewed to the right in ie 8. We haven't seen any such problems with other browsers like firefox. Has anyone seen this? Is the administrator account phenomenon significant? I was thinking of doing some experimentation with the site but i don't really know where to begin. I guess checking the source of the page for the correct display against the skewed one would be a start. Any other ideas?

Adobe Flash Player Install

I looked at the site below but cannot install flash. I just got this computer and straight out of the box there are several features we could access on our old machine but cannot now and i think it is because of flash. Like i said i tried all the steps below (really! - Come-on!) And no luck. http://social. ollymax, you're not running 64-bit windows 7 are you? From the adobe flash player download page, you're downloading (saving) the installer, not running it (from the website) right?

Try this:
1. From internet options> security> internet zone, click on the default level button.
2. You still have the flash uninstaller and installer files saved on the desktop, right?
3. Restart in safe mode. Right click the flash uninstaller and run as administrator.

Start vista or windows 7 in safe mode Mspx

4. Restart into safe mode again.
5. Run the flash installer as administrator.
6. Restart.
7. From ie> tools> manage add-ons, make sure that the shockwave flash object is enabled.
8. Test flash player at http://kb2.
9. If unsuccessful, check steps 3 and 4 at http://kb2.

Adobe Flash Player Failure

For months i have tried everything i could find on the internet to successfully load and play adobe flash player 10 in windows 7. I am not the only one. There are numerous complaints on the internet defining the problem and offering solutions, none of which works. I did find one that said that windows 7 simply does not recognize adobe flash player 10. It seems every video on the web is based on the adobe flash player. My question is why hasn't microsoft responded to the numerous complaints and offer a quick fix?

Cannot Install Updates And Adobe Flash Player

My problem is quite simple but the answer is not! I cannot download any windows updates. I get no error message. I press download and it just sits there saying " installing updates " and it goes on for hours. All night last night it was installing. I have followed almost every thread in this section and tried everything  that has been recommended but nothing has worked. And they want us to install windows 7. I just want vista working  properly.

Can i format from my recovery drive "d"? I am running vista home premium on a compaq presario laptop. I also have two network adapters with yellow. Next to them in device manager. I tried uninstalling them but they reinstall themselves.

Installed Adobe Flash Player Activex

I finally was able to install the active x for adobe flash player which shows the file size in my control panel. The plug-in is also listed but has no value of the file size attached to it is it really there. Also there is no file that says flash player so am i correct in assuming its not there? And how can i fix this. I obviously am doing something wrong. If i have to go into the registry i don't know how to do this so if you know how to fix it please be explicit on how i have to do it.

Adobe Flash Player, Win 7, 64-bit Os

I recently upgraded to windows 7/64 bit and of course i'm having issues with adobe flash player. When i was running vista on the same system prior to windows 7, ie worked and flash worked therefore i was probably running ie 32.

When i try to execute ie 32 bit on windows 7 64 bit, the "circle/hour glass" appears and the goes away immediately with the ie 32 bit screen not displaying. Ie 64 bit does work except for any pages that need the flash player.

I have read many answers that say this should work until adobe releases the 64 bit product. I can't determine what is going on.

Adobe Flash Player Download Problem

I was told this morning i needed to download the latest version of adobe flash player, which is 10. 1. Upon attempting to do so, i was told i needed to uninstall any previous versions, which i did. When i tried to download the new version, i was then told it failed, and i would have to temporarily disable my anti-virus, which i am not going to do. Can anyone please tell me what's going on here? I would assume adobe is a trusted site-i do have adobe reader.

Adobe Flash Player Stops And Starts

Adobe flash player. Whenever i play a video on adobe flash player it stops and then starts again, this happens every 10 seconds or so. Why doesn't the video play without these pauses. I tried un-installing and re-installing adobe flash player 10. 1 but this doesn't take care of the problem. It also doesn't matter what site i am playing the video, aol news, youtube, etc. Or whether i use ie 8 or mozilla firefox as my web browser. I tried contacting adobe about this problem without success. Does anyone know what causes this problem?

Cannot Play Youtube Videos - Upgrade Adobe Flash Player

Cannot play videos such as youtube, i get a message saying "upgrade adobe flash player", but that's not the problem. Ever since i upgraded to ie8, whenever i go to youtube, the player won't play. It gives me a message that says i need to upgrade my adobe flash player. I've done that several times, and it doesn't help. I still get the same message.

Now here's the funny part. When i use firefox, youtube works just fine! Which tells me the problem is in ie. I would actually prefer to use ie instead of firefox (more familiar) but i'm at my wit's end trying to figure out what the problem is, or how to go about fixing it.

Adobe Flash Player Doesn't Work Correctly In Win 7 64-bit

Windows 7 with explorer 8 both in 64 bit. I can not back out of explorer now and go back to explorer 7 nor can i go to 32 bit. The main problem is the flash player from adobe.

Loses Installation Of Flash Player 10 For Ie8

I have win 7 (starter) (32-bit) on a new acer aspire one 532. I always logon to it with my own profile (this is the only one on the machine and has administrator privileges). Early on i removed the pre-installed mcafee which was causing problems with ie8 (and other apps. ).

Anyway in order to view youtube clips and play other swf files (e.g. Those on the bbc website) i have downloaded and installed flash player 10 (32-bit) from adobe's website - and everything was ok. At the same time i downloaded the version for opera, safari, chrome and foxfire. But then if i reboot / restart the acer it 'loses' the installation of flash player 10 for ie8 and i then have to re-download and re-install it - time and time and time again.

For some reason the installation(s) for opera, safari, chrome and foxfire remain ok and working. However the version for ie8 is always uninstalled during thre reboot / restart. I have also asked acer customer service but they have ignored my posts (well they have my money so i guess that they don't care).
