How Do I Download Flash in Chrome?

Apr 21, 2012 3:16 PM

The evil yellow/orange bar appeared at the top of every single page of every website. It was quite annoying. So I went to the Adobe website and copied the following instructions:

How do I fix almost all Shockwave and Flash Player issues?

You can resolve almost all difficulties encountered with the Adobe Shockwave and Flash Players by taking the following steps:

For Windows:

Uninstall Shockwave Player 10 via the Control Panel. Go to Add/Remove programs, and choose Macromedia or Adobe Shockwave Player.

To remove the Flash Player download the uninstaller here: ceId=1

*IMPORTANT; After uninstalling both Players, restart your computer.

Then reinstall both the Shockwave and Flash Players here:


I followed the instructions to the letter. (rather simple, wouldnt you say) Uninstalling was easy but every time I try to download, it tells me I have Chrome and it is taken care of automatically so It wont let Me do anythingq


Does anyone know how I get my flashplayer back? Aw snap it crashed.

    Flash is built-in in Chrome and not a plug-in. Reinstall Chrome entirely.

    Uggh, sounds severe. Have you deleted all Chrome caches? Is the Google Updater doing something? If this doesn't work, I recomemnd you uninstall everything from Google, flush the caches and try again. Something is seriously wrong here...

    Yes. -->C:\Users\Bill\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome. And also check the Add/Remove Programs system control panel and uninstall Chrome, the Updater, Google Earth and whatever otehr of their tools you may be using and start with a clean slate.
