I have tried fixing this myself before asking any help. I have looked over the forum to try to find a fix. I have done pretty much everything suggested before. I have uninstalled, installed java6 update 6. However, I can not dl adobe flash player. For some reason it wont install. I have enabled active controls and everything. I have uninstalled and tried to install adobe flashplayer. I ran a test from the adobe website and it says that I have the right version. Does anyone have any ideas?

To uninstall flash use the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller here. Then try to reinstall.

Negative. It just one day decided not to work. So I updated javascript to the new one.
I removed all previous versions of javascript and reinstalled it. I also did the same thing with
adobe flash player.

To uninstall flash use the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller here. Then try to reinstall.


I have done this about 10 times with no such luck. I go to the uninstall on adobe's website and unistall app then try to install the new one. The installing the new one is the problem, the activex or something will not let me dl the adobeflash. The activex works on everything else. I have used the test on the adobe website and it says that I have the current adobe flash player. This is why I am thinking it has something to do with the javascript.

What internet browser are you using.

Also, try cleaning out all your temp internet files.

Java & Javascript aren't the same thing and shouldn't affect Flash anyway. What browser do you use and look in Add/Remove Programs to see what version of Flash you have.

If it's the activeX Flash player you are talking about, you can check its status on Control Panel>Internet Explorer>Browsing History>Settings>View objects.

Its usually pretty obvious which it is at it will say Flash player or shockwave player etc. If it shows as 'damaged' just delete it and start again.

Ok. I checked what you said and you were right. I had 2 things that were damaged. I had the shockwave player damaged as well as some funky numbering. I removed both of them.
Should I uninstall everything again and start over ?

I would start over and uninstall it and reinstall and see if it works after all those advices given from everyone.

You may try this as it has worked for others:

To repair problems with your system:
  • Download Dial-a-fix from djlizard.net
  • Unzip the file and double-click Dial-a-fix.exe to start the program.
  • Press double green checkmark - "Check all"- to turn everything on.
  • Close all other open windows.
  • Press "GO" to start processing all checkmarked items.
  • REBOOT your computer afterwards, important.

Ok did it. It fixed the myspace music problem. Shockwave ( i believe is what its called) is working again. That is good news. Youtube is still not working or any other video websites.
