I m trying to install Flash Player 11 in a PC with windows XP Pro SP3. Everything looks ok, but when i go to youtube only black screen. Right click gives only "About Flash 11" option. Same with IE 8 and Google Chrome. With Mozilla its ok cause of HTML5. When i try to install flash in Mozilla it cant, and says to try manualy (download and install as i ve done before).
Disabled Anti-virus, checked for malware and virus, reset cache, history etc, went to Flash player advanced settings (throught Control Panel), done ALL steps with installing-reinstalling everything. Checked Permissions, addons and plugins, same story. Any other idea except reinstall windows?
For the video issue, does it make any difference if you toggle hardware acceleration off?
Use this installer link to install on Firefox:

Can you provide the full error message, or better yet, a screenshot of that message?
For IE8, see http://forums.adobe.com/thread/885448
Yea i checked, actually the most strange is that Flash not working in all 3 browsers, Chrome, Mozilla and IE8. After installation, everything looks ok, i can go to Control Panel and see the Flash settings there (just some delete from storage etc options), and generally speaking the installation seems to finish with no problem. But when i go to Adobe check page, or in youtube, looks that is not working. One thing i dont know is if windows have a choise of what player to use forn flash content. (maybe something else its checked for play this content).
I reinstalled and install again flash through ALL the steps in Adobe page, including registry tip with a microsoft tool (last step) . Of course reformat is a solution, but i dont think is logical to need reformat just for a program.
The drivers for the Intel G33 are pretty old, so the logical step would be to disable hardware acceleration. But since you cannot go to local settings, this is unfortunately not possible. (Pity that the native control panel does not allow that setting!)
Two things I would try if I were to encounter your situation:
I ll try it and send feedback. One thing that confuses me, is that in IE8 and Chrome, it doesnt say that Flash is not installed, its just saw a black screen (video didnt loaded). In the other hand, Mozilla plays youtube video (with html5 support) so its not problem with Youtube or something. Anyway, i ll try later Pat your suggestions and i ll post the results (hope to be good results).
Thank you all for your help, without you i couldnt find the solution.
burnedtoast check your firewall, probably something blocks the adobe server. If you have other Adobe products installed, maybe you ve got "tweak" hosts file (windows/system32/drivers/etc ).
Of course you can download manually the Flash player and probably you ll not have problem. If the problem persists only in Mozilla, clean cache, history etc, and in Tools- General -Manage addons, that Flash is there and enabled.
