Download the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller and installer directly by right clicking the following links and selecting "Save target as".
Save the files to your Downloads folder - DO NOT RUN THEM YET.
Reboot your system.
BEFORE opening anything, go to your Downloads folder and run the UNINSTALLER to remove Flash Player completely.
Then run the installer to replace the Flash Player ActiveX Plugin for IE.
That should remedy the "disappearing" plugin issue.
In the even it doesn't, you may want to repair IE9: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318378
Hi. I saved the files, rebooted the system, used the uninstaller, run the installer and rebooted the PC. Went on YouTube and I still got the "You need to upgrade your Adobe Flash Player to watch this video. Download it from Adobe."
What order do I do it in? Do I reboot the PC, use the uninstaller, reinstall, repair IE by resetting IE settings and reboot PC? Thanks.
