Recently my flash player quit working on me in the middle of a youtube video, it just quit playing and said i needed to install the latest version of Adobe. So i went and uninstalled it, rebooted, and installed the newest version. It is still telling me that i need to install latest version. I have done several uninstalls and reinstalls, but with no luck. My computer is showing that it is installed and working, and no problems with installation, add-ons are enabled for browser, but it's still not registering that i have a flash player installed. Please help. I even went through and did a clean installation of flash player.

You need to use the uninstall tool at the link below or you won't be able to reinstall it properly.

Since we're talking about Youtube, try Chrome. And on Firefox, the uninstallation and reinstallation is different. You can do that in Addons. But the fact that it's not working in either browser indicates something else is going on and someone who knows a lot more than me needs to investigate.

Finally!!!!! I just figured it out. I had to go into my firewall and disable block animated adds. I'm so happy that i figured this out. I've been working on this for about a week now.

Thanks for letting us know what the solution was. I'm sure this will be helpful to others.

Hi Ribdigger870!
In which program did you disable block animated ads? That sounds like it should be part of the browser but I can't navigate my Firefox since they got rid of the Options tab. :blush:
Thank you.

This website is really bad on the user friendliness. It took way to long to register and they did not tell me they were sending an email that I had to finish the registration. The security feature thing is really unfair, you can not see the letters clearly, I find that with most sites. really, are we that worried about security. Anyway, since I did not get an answer with all that other stuff  for the adobe flash possible problems; I felt that I should help . If you are having problems with the product go to this website http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html#main-pars_heading_6

I had problems with my computer and had turned off the managed add on shockwave flash object thingy, please can you rename that to shutoff adobe flash player , what's this shockwave, punishment for using this product. Why would they not warn you that flashplayer would not work at all without it and when you use flash why would it not tell you that is disabled in your add ons. Just another victim of bleeding technology.and bleeping, I bleep at you for wasting my time with your nonsense

 If you are running windows Internet Explorer, click on the safety tab on the top right of your command bar, uncheck ActiveX filtering.
