Hi Gang
First of all I am new to the forum and must say I am enjoying it.Some great stuff and support.

Now lets see if someone can help me.
About a month ago my Adobe Flash was wiped of my PC. I have System Mechanic and I believe on one of its sweeps, there was something wrong with my original Adobe Flash so it was taken off. I don't have any sign of the old Flash in my system.
When I try to download the newest version of Adobe Flash, it tells me it was downloaded successfully, but I cannot find it on my system
When I went in to the Adobe site they advised me to check Internet Explorer ActiveX settings and make sure that both "ActiveX controls and plugins" and also "download signed ActiveX controls" were both set to prompt which I did do. This did not work and in fact I have this annoying Internet Browser box popping up all the time asking if I want ActiveX to continue working.
The next advice Adobe then gave me was to download the SubinACL from Microsoft to fix permission issues. Also make sure I set up a restore point in "systems restore" before I started.
I know a little about PCs but want to throw this out to knowledgable members to see am I doing the correct thing.
Any help or advice would be very welcome
Regards
Tom :thumbsup:

I've used that subinacl utility before...I fail to see what it will do for a botched Adobe Flash install. But...I don't claim to understand many instructions provided re computers :thumbsup:.

I would just:

Uninstall whatever is on your system now, http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html

Then, install the latest version of FP, http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

Hi Louis
Thank you for the advice.
Now that I know there are problems with Adobe, I will hold off with the SubinACL and try your links first.
I have set a System Restore so if I mess up I can hopefully revert back to yesterday.

Love the forum. Been reading some of the content. You guys (and Gals) are great people.
Will let you know how it went on Monday. I am away the weekend.
Have a great weekend all.
Tom :thumbsup:

I've been going round and round with adobe since LAST JULY!!! Trying to get their "latest" flash to work. Installed, reinstalled, done all their little tricks over and over. Spent hours on this.

They want me to use that subinacl.exe BUT the MS site says it's for Professional edition, says nothing about XP Home, which is what I have. So there's no way I'm going to use it and take a chance. In fact, adobe has a dire warning on their site, that they are not responsible, blah, blah, blah.

Now what? YouTube is making changes and I will be SOL soon. Cannot make flash work in Firefox (latest). Get error message saying to "upgrade" to the "latest" which I already HAVE on the system. But FF doesn't recognize it somehow. I've spent untold hours on this already, perhaps cumulatively over three whole DAYS.

I need to be able to download from YT as well as watch. Have the FF extension installed, but that does not work if the video doesn't play!

Anybody have any help?

You would be better served starting a new topic in the audio video section but the first question I have is have you uninstalled the old version of Flash using their uninstall tool? Forget SubinACL. It's a red herring.

Thanks for the advice. Will do in other section. Yes, have uninstalled, reinstalled several times. Done everything they recommended, except for the subinacl. Every time I check to see what version I have, it says it's the latest. But it still won't play in FF.
