Why do I still get a "Could not load Shockwave Flash." prompt after a successful download?
To better assist you with this issue we need to know:
What is your operating system? (Windows or Mac) (XP, Vista, 7, 8)
What browser do you use? (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari)
I have Windows Internet Explorer with Vista.
You get that message when doing what?
I get that message as a prompt upon opening facebook or trying to play a YouTube video.
Never seen that message before; can you try a clean instal: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/928315
