I am posting this for a friend of mine, she doesn't like to join forums but she is having a computer problem and
after I searched for a "fix" for this issue she is still having problems.

She has an asus netbook which is running linux(unsure of version) up until recently she was able to watch shows
and movies on sites like hulu, now when she tries to view a show on hulu she receives this error message,
"Express Install is not supported on this operating system."

I suggested that she uninstall flash and then reinstall the upgraded version because I had read that doing that
helped other people on another forum. The problem is that she cannot find the file to uninstall and I was wondering
if doing this will fix the problem and if anyone here knew how to find it and could maybe write out some sort of
directions on how to do this procedure. I have never used Linux so I have pretty much no knowledge of how it works.

I would greatly appreciate any help with this, my friend doesn't have a tv so her computer is her entertainment and
it seems like the only places she can watch videos is youtube and cbs.com

Try typing this command into a terminal window:

uname -a

This should tell you the distro you are running along with some other useful information.
