I have Windows XP service pacdk 2, my internet service
provider is aol and I connect through them on DSL. I have a
firewall and virus protection, in the past I did not have problems
using flash player however I have tried everything which includes:
Unsintalling flash player using the uninstall exe
reinstalling flash player using the install exe
installing a stand alone
reinstalling IEP 7.0
editing the registry as suggested on one of the
troubleshooting suggestion on adobe page.
I have turned off the firewall, my virus protection and
removed security on IEP 7.0 uninstalled and reinstalled and still
After I am prompted to install the active x controll then i
install flash player 9 and I get as far as seeing the F letter on
top of the white and green bar which undersneath informs that once
I see the movie displayed there, that would mean that flash player
is installed. Results: It prompts me to install again and then
nothing! My son claims he has no problem with flash player when he
switches to his settings on the computer but I doubt it and am not
going to ask him to show me.
Can anybody give me any guidance on this? I have been told
that it is a windows vulnerability issue and that one of the
downloads from service pack 2 may have caused this.
yes sp2 stops all active X content. It is shame that sp2 even
will stop fullscreen view as it will not allow the fullscreen view
to scroll. Who ever thought of and designed the sp2 obvious is
overpaid and underpriviledged when it comes to brains.
They designed it so that they could fill the numerous holes
in their OS.
Furthermore there is so much flash incorporated in XP that if
you remove it XP will not function properly.
