Flash Player Update Not Working

Post by ftboomer » Sun Oct 05, 2008 2:09 pm

As of Thursday, This is what I get when I go to youtube.com.


"Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player."



Using 11.7.15 SR1. Went out and did the upgrade of the Shockwave and Flash players. Checked all my IE and Avant settings and everything looks good but I still can not view youtube vids.

Everything works well in Orca.

**edit - OK, Forgot to check IE8 but I get the same thing in IE8. Thoughts?

Ok
So the only thing I may suggest so far is to reinstall Flash.
Please download the Flash installer here
Then,Please close your web browsers (IE/Avant etc) and all the programs that may use Flash (Windows Live Messenger etc)
Then, Please go to Start>Control Panel
If you're using XP, Please go to Add/remove programs
If Vista, Please go to Programs and Features
Please find Adobe Flash Player ActiveX and uninstall it.
Then, Please run the installer to reinstall the Flash player.
