Hello,
I used to have the new flash player working fine, then late last week my internet explorer kept crashing saying it was an ad on problem and advised me to download the newest flash player.
On saturday i tried to do this, all works fine, i install activx, click run, etc.
It gets to the final screen where you sopposed to see the movie once its downloaded and nothing happens!!!!!!
I can hardly view any of my web pages....please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After having been asked to update my Flash Player, from 9 to 10... I could no longer watch YouTube.com video's, nor could I watch Myspace.com video's etc. Because every time I would try, I would get a message error stating, that, my Java Script was either turn off, or, I needed to update to the latest Flash Player... Yadda! yadda! yadda!!

And, well. Needless to say... after having dedicated most of my weekend to solving this issue... Here is what fixed it, for me anyway!! LOL

NOTE!! I too read everywhere online, that, I needed enable a couple of settings within my Internet Explorer / Internet Options / Security. THIS DID NOTHING!!

If you are running Windows Vista, and you update to Flash Player 10??? You need to download, unzip, open, and run THIS Debugger exe file from the Flash Player website.

I finally got flashplayer to work in firefox running Vista. Go to the folder: C:\windows\system32\macromed\flash

Right click on "uninstall activex" and run as administrator
Right click on "uninstall" (whatever the other one says) and run as administrator

Rename the folder flash.old

NOW download flash player and install (remember, install from a folder with right click, not from download) run as administrator

NOW install flash player.
It worked for me!
I tried what Joe say-did not work. Did the installing through the administrator. This was the answer!
Thank you swan sailor

Yeah I have had the same problem with this. I have windows vista.
But does the flash player affect iTunes because that hasnt been working correctly either since i have been getting these messages about how I need to download the latest version of adobe flash player. I tried and tried but what happened to me happened to you. SO maybe go to there solution center.
joe you are the man i owe you a beer
thanks Joe...very useful...i tried everything but nothing helped...ur link helped me to iron out the prob within seconds :)
I tried Joe's solution above, and just wanted to say thanks. It worked fine. Now as long as I log in to Internet Explorer as the Administrator the Flash Player works fine.

thanks so much joe, i was having the same problem, and i was getting frustrated already. it tried your solution and it works fine
i had this problem for months.. tried uninstalling, reinstallation, runing the debugger, deleting flash, internet explorer, everything.. nothing helped. eventually but the bullet and got someone to fix it for me - www.fixedlikemagic.com was the cheapest and easiest by far - you dont even have to move your computer.
