Ok, I'll try to make this short. I have Windows XP. There are three profiles on my computer. My son's is the only profile that runs without a hitch when it calls for flash player.
I go to the adobe site and it tells me that I have Flash 9. But everywhere I go they say I have an old version of flash player and I need to upgrade It's quite infuriating. :thumbsup:

Sometimes an unistall of flash and reinstall fixes the problem. To uninstall Flash 9 or higher you must use the uninstaller found here:

Oh yeah I tried using Adobes removal tool. The same one your link goes to (because there is a newer version since November 2006) then I reinstalled with no positive results.

In Add/remove, uninstall ALL old versions of Adobe/Macromedia Flash.
Sometimes Java script can cause this problem, too. If you don't have the latest, which is 6.0, go here for the latest version after uninstalling your present version(s):

Which is the 4th one down for end users.

Hi saved, :thumbsup: to BC

Some of the older flash players like to leave a file behind in the Macromedia folder in Windows System32 folder. I don't know if this what is causing your problem but cleaning them out manually may be worth a try.

Go to the Secunia website and run their software inspector:

http://secunia.com/software_inspector/

If these files are present it will detect them and it will tell you their names and locations. I forget the individual file names but the ultimate location it will give you is here: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash.

If they are present then navigate to that location and manually delete the file(s) the security inspector names in its report. Delete only the file(s) it names, leave the other files alone because they are part of your current flash player. This may or not be the cause of your issues but I believe in ruling out the simple causes before searching for the hard ones.

Let us know if this works or not.

Also you may find out that other applications you have installed are out of date, update them to be safe.

Good Luck :flowers:
