Flash player will not appear in list of programs using start key. It is browser plug in. If it is exist in control panel that means it is installed.

Can you please provide any link of video that you are not able to play.
At the moment I can't play any because I just completed a clean uninstall of flash player. However, even after doing that when I right click a video on youtube I get this --
You have version 9,0,124,0 installed.
How can this be? I do not find any flash player files anywhere in my windows system32 or systemWOW64 directories!
UPDATE - There is an activex control txt file that reappears in the C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash every time I restart my computer. No idea how it gets there or how to stop it from happening!
I deleted everything include the version 9 activex file and reinstalled the latest version. Same problem. Some videos play, some don't. Here is a link to one that doesn't.
Latest version of flash player is 11.7, there could be some instances left for older version.
It is required a clean installation of adobe flash player. Please follow the instructions below.
