I am not able to view photos or videos (YouTube) online as of yesterday. This problem started after using advice gleaned from a sister forum to fix a problem with hijacked search function in Google, but it may be just coincidental. Every time I try to view a photo or video, I get this message: "An old version of the Flash plugin was detected. Please upgrade your Flash plugin." I then click on the link provided, which takes me to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
where I download the upgrade to my desktop. When I click on the red icon (I now have 4 of them) "install_flash_player.exe", it appears to be installing, with the green striped bar going from left to right, and in a few seconds it says, "Completed," although the green striped bar never disappears.
Should I uninstall and try reinstalling? I looked in my Control Panel under Add or Remove Programs, and the first thing listed is "Adobe Flash Player 10 Plugin."
Thanks for any help you can give.
