ADOBE FLASH PLAYER   WINDOWS 8

Oct 25, 2013 4:06 PM

I believe I may have managed to delete Adobe Flash Player from my computer.   It is apparently embedded in the hard drive.   I am unable to redownload from the Adobe site as it is telling me I already have it.   Any help out there  ???

    I also am experiencing this since I downloaded Windows 8.1 with Internet Explorer 11 (originally had W8).

     

    I have the latest Adobe Flash Player installed per Adobe's website verifying it.

     

     

    Since the W8.1 update I can no longer view many online videos and tv sites that I previously were able to with no problem.

     

    I am discovering many people are discovering this problem after they download the W8.1 upgrade.

    Flash Player is preinstalled on Internet Explorer on Windows 8.x.

     

    If you deleted/uninstalled it, you need to download it from Microsoft (not Adobe).

    ...you need to download it from Microsoft (not Adobe).

     

     

    I deleted the version I downloaded from Adobe, then restarted the computer.

     

    Next I tried to find Adobe Flash at Microsoft but I can only find the updates for it and when I attempted to download 1 it said I already have it (the update). This occurred at thre Microsoft download Center.

     

    Where specifically might I get the Microsoft version of Adobe or how do I get it would be helpful at this point.

     

    Thanx for the help.

    If you already have it, then you don't need to download it.
