Download the following files (Right click and "Save Link as"):
Run the Uninstallers from your Downloads folder, to remove BOTH Flash Player and Shockwave.
Go to: C/Windows/System32 and delete the Macromed folder.
Go to: C/Windows/SysWOW64 and delete the Macromed folder.
Open your Windows Registry Editor (Start>Run or press the Windows key+r. Tpye "regedit" [minus the quotes] and click OK.
In the Registry Editor, go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE and delete the Macromedia folder.
Go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software and delete the Macromedia folder.
Close the Registry Editor and empty your Recycle bin.
Run the Shockwave FULL Installer first, and THEN the Flash Player Installer. These are offline installers and will require no connection during the process.
If problems persist, try disbaling other plugins and extensions for Firefox, to determine if one or more is conflicting with Flash and Shockwave.
got hit by a wall when deleteing FlashUtil_ActiveX.exe,FlashUtil_ActiveX.dll,Flash.ocx keeps getting you don't have permission to delete these files even tho i have full admin its also givin me a error when deleteing the registrys
Download this file: TakeOwnership.zip
Unzip it and double click the .reg file it contains.
Click "Yes" and "OK" to add the registry entry.
You can NOW take root level ownership (unlimited permissions) of ANY file or folder on your hard drive, or the entire hard drive... with a right click.
Open an Explorer window to your Computer and right click the C drive.
Choose Take Ownership.
A command prompt window will open as permissions are applied to the entire drive. (It'll take a while)
Try the above instructions AFTER you have permission to chaneg everything. It'll go much smoother.
never thought that repairing adobe flash would be a pain
I've seen a "rash" of permission problems lately with Win 7. I don't know if MS released an update that "pooched" these systems, or what, but it's NOT happening with Xp, Vista or 8... until now that is.
win 8 has been nothing but problems iv noticed havin to wait a month till i'm back on win 7 hardly ever had a problem with adobe on win 7 or xp
You're preachin' to the choir, there.
I'm a Mac user, and my teenage daughter has more time on my Windows 8 Toshiba laptop than I do, and I've had it since June. She lives with her mom, and has visited twice since I got it. She's put in about two weeks to my 12 hours.
I have 8 and 8.1 as Virtual Machines on my Mac, and they run better on it than 8 does ON THE PC.... go figure!
well used the take ownership to fix the problem and it didn't fix it even after a clean install still getting the constant crashing
