For the last few days I've been trying to get the latest version of Flash to work on my laptop, I've gone through every suggestion posted on these forums and the most I get is a black box where a flash video is supposed to work. I've installed and unistalled all more times than I can count, right now I have the latest version installed but when I go to the test page on the link provided to other users it tells me that it is not. I desperately need to fix this and any help is appreciated.
Windows 7 Home Premium
IE9 version 9.0.8112.16421
Flash Version 11.3.300.268
I've checked the first link and under the manage add ons tab, next to Toolbars and Extensions, Shockwave Flash Objects is enabled. When I click on the link that takes you to the Flash Player About Page I don't even get a box with a red x on it, it's just blank.
I also checked the second link you posted having to do with ActiveX Filtering, I've made sure to turn it off. I also don't get the circle with a slash icon on any of the webpages I am having problems with.
My display adapter info is
Driver Provider: Intel Corporation
Driver Date: 4/4/2011
Driver Version: 126.96.36.1993
I used the link below with the filepaths and didn't find anything. Is there
anything else to try? I've been doing internet searches for 3 days and I
keep coming up with the same things to do, but nothing works, short of
returning to IE8.
Flash seems to be working with Chrome, so that's good. I tried IE again.
The message doesn't show up on the browser, but Youtube gives me a message
on each video saying that I need to download Flash to watch it. My wife
prefers IE, so I'd appreciate any help you can be getting that to work.
I'll still search on my own, as well.
If you go to this page on IE, does it tell you what version of Flash is installed?
