hello iam new to the postings in the group and I have a windows 7 64 bit laptop.  my problem is if any one knows the answer is about the adobe flash player.  I already have it installed and everytime I watch or try to watch a video the adobe flash player blocks my view and has a message to either deny or allow.   I click deny and is still there.  anyone know what to do.   I figured it was a virus trying to get into my pc.  I do have virus protection.   thanks for taking my question.. take care :bubbles:

Did you download from Adobe Website?

 

You could try uninstalling : http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html

 

Then reinstalling: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?no_ab=1

 

Make sure to 'untick' any add-ons before downloading.

 

You should also look at this: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/help06.html

 

If you haven't ran a Malware scan with your AV I would do so before performing the above.

 

Good Luck

Sorry for the confusion. 'UNTICK' means the same as UNCHECK'.

 

When downloading programs from some sites there will be a box or boxes that are automatically 'CHECKED' and will be included in the download as an add-on if you do not 'UNCHECK'. Examples would be a Google Toolbar or making Chrome as the default browser.

 

So before downloading any programs look closely.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Good Luck
