For about 3 months now i have had some flash issues which i believe i have tried everything i can possibly think of. I am using 188.8.131.52 currently up to date and my main browser is firefox, however this issue happens on all browsers.
I, whenever a new update, do a clean install as per your site instructions. However the last 2 updates it seems that it installs fine, works fine and then once i have restarted my laptop stops working within a browser and has to be reinstalled. The files are still there, it doesnt tell me to reinstall, but it doesnt work, nothing works, so i reinstall and it starts working again.
I have made a new admin acct on my laptop, no joy. I have done at least 100 clean installs, no joy. I have tried many browsers, no joy. I have tried the windows fix for allowing flash you describe, no joy.
I am out of ideas, i continue to reinstall everyday for it to work and its very annoying, please someone help.
Windows vista 32bit
Say i open youtube, it will just be a black section where the video should be. I check to make sure its still installed on the browser, all the files are still on the system, so i reinstall, and as if by magic its working again.
I have seen this symptom dozens of times here at the forum, and normally a clean install fixed the problem permanently. I don't know why it does not for you.
Things to try:
If that still does not fix it, hopefully someone from the Flash Player team can step in (after the weekend is over in the US).
