Moving this discussion to the Installing Flash Player forum.
What is your operating system & version?
What is your web browser?
You write that you downloaded Flash Player; did you also install it?
Thanks for taking the time to ask questions.
Windows 7 : IE9 & Babylon : Been trying to install over and over. The
indication is that it is installed, but when I access a video on you tube,
it asks for flash player. In the process of trying, I have lost active-x,

video on you tube, it reflects the same message: you need to install flash
player. Hoping that it is clearer to you. To me its still clear as mud!!
Have a good day.

I checked both java script and flash player plugin, and both are enabled.
I then accessed you tube and when I clicked on a video, it started showing.
I now have checked games, that works also. Media player and Audio are
It seems the problem has been solved somehow. I'm still clueless, but thank
you for your interest and advise via the forum.
Please thank the other members if this doesn't copy automatically.
Flash Player is a browser plug-in and that's why you don't see it in the Programs. Being available in the Control Panel indicates that it's installed in your machine. We are glad that you could solve the issue. And, your reply is marked to all members.
