I use Windows XP SP3 & I use Internet Explorer. Every time I try viewing a newsclip or video, I'm alerted I need to download Adobe Flash Player. I HAVE Flash Player, so I uninstall it and go to Adobe.com and reinstall the 'latest' version. This has happened at least 6 times in 2 months! And, worse, when I download it, the video may STILL not play. What's wrong and how can I stop this from happening? Thanks!

Does Flash work on other sites? What version is reported when you visit this URL?
Thanks so much for getting back, Chris. In a nutshell, once again I deleted Flash and reinstalled it via Adobe.com. I've got version 11.3.300.268, and YES, I just went to the homepage of Yahoo! and successfully watched a news video. I don't understand why this happens....it works sometimes and not others! I guess I'll have to wait until the next time I'm warned I need to have FP in order to watch a video because I can't remember what sites it happens on.
May I get in touch with you when it happens again?????
Many thanks! Bonnienatalie
Hi, didn't realize your reply would also come to my email.
I replied to your questions at 'forums', and just saw this email now.
Netflix worked just fine, but I think that's silverlight, not flash.
Tomorrow (later today, that is) I'll try another newsvideo and see what
gives. I can't believe that just because I *finally *wrote for help via
Adobe Forums, Flash will start working correctly for me!
Wouldn't that be nice, though!
