    Adobe Flash Player.

      Hi, When I close my laptop for the evening, the next morning when I open up again, I have to physically re-load my Adobe Flash player before I can access videos on You Tube or any other program that uses the flash player program. This is getting to be very fustrating. Before anybody suggests this course of action. I have uninstalled the old version and done a clean install of the latest Flash Player program. This works perfectly for as long as I keep the laptop running. If I attempt to re-start for any reason, i find that Adobe Flash player will not work, even though it is shown in my list of programs and it is enabled.

          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)

            Hi, thanks for the reply. My operating system is Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit and I am using Internet Explorer 10.



            As I said, for some reason overnight or when I attempt to re-start my laptop, I have to re-load Adobe Flash Player every time, even though it is still showing in my Control panel. But I have noticed this anomaly. When I go back in to control panel, the red symbol which normally marks Flashplayer has turned to a sheet of paper icon with the top right hand corner turned down.


            I am 72 years old and not very computer literate, and I do not have any whizz kid Grandsons near enough to help me out.


            This problem is doing my head in, and I am re-loading it correctly each time, i is just that it seems to become inoperative fo some reason overnight.

              Well, there are some very detailed instructions for making sure it's enabled, and that ActiveX filtering (in Internet Explorer) isn't preventing it from working.
