Adobe Flash Player ... even with regular updates, it crashes on me 3 and 4 times per day. I'm looking for a permanent, more reliable alternative. Does anyone know of one? I run WinXP Home Edition, version 2002, sp3. Firefox browser (and I use the plug in checker I found on this site, real handy). Hopefully, someone knows of a viable alternative (preferably with a simple, idiot proof download and install capability) Thanks.

No such thing. You need Flash to play videos that use Flash. What are you doing when it supposedly crashes? Error messages? My guess is Flash is not the problem. It's something else.

It crashes consistently, no matter what I am doing. Games, web pages...whatever I do that requires flash player, it crashes. There isn't any support/contact option (that I can find) on the Adobe website so I can't ask them for advice. I have heard that there are alternatives, but the only one I can find is for a MAC. I am looking for an alternative to Adobe.

There is no alternative. Maybe it's corrupted. I don't know. I find it hard to believe that it crashes all the time. I think you're exaggerating. Uninstall Flash using the tool at this link and reinstall. That might help.

I have deleted and reinstalled, and that didn't help. And, I'm not exaggerating. 3 to 4 times a day, and that's an everyday occurrence. I know there's one called Gnash...but I think that's just for MAC. I'm still looking.

Did you delete it, or did you uninstall it?
There is a difference.
If you uninstalled, did you use the uninstaller in the link provided by frankp316.
Using Add/Remove doesn't totally remove all of the Flash components, so the uninstaller is necessary.
