    I have a similar problem I will post along with yours and hope we both get a working answer.

     

    Here's the deal. My desktop used to play flash content from various web sites, now it has stopped. I've uninstalled programs I thought may have been causing the problem. I've uninstalled Flash Player and reinstalled, even going through the registry and deleted all reference to Flash Player before reinstall. I've checked some of the sites I've been having problems with on my laptop and they worked fine, so I took the laptop to the desktop and compared IE 8 settings between them and set the desktop to the same as the laptop. I've even disabled IE add ons I thought may be stooping Flash from loading correctly and tested after each disable. About at wits end. BTW the desktop is running Vista Business SP2. Anyone have any suggestions or answers for my dilemma?

    same problem, I am trying to finish my taxes and need to get to a site that requires flash

    when I go to trouble shooting, the grey box that is supposed to show your version is blank, but flash is in my programs and I also receive a popup that the install was successful,  I have restarted also

    I contacted adobe and they say they have no online support for flash

    I'm running adobe on the windows 7 64bit version. It tells me to update to the newest Adobe version. It doesn't matter whether or not I use google chrome, IE or whatever browser. Also, some applications, like "Jodix Free WMA to MP3 converter", that utilize the flash player are not working.

     

    I already tried to manually uninstall and reinstall flash using the "uninstall_flash_player.exe" application and manually uninstalled flash. (I got the uninstall file from the official adobe page.) I also removed the leftover files and reinstalled the newest version as suggested. Nothing has changed though. Flash keeps on telling me it needs to update itself whenever I got to pages like YouTube and my computer programs that utilize flash still do not work. Help, please.
