I see that you need a solution urgently. I recommend using Google Chrome, Flash Player is embedded into the browser installer and is updated with ever chrome release/update.
Thanks for your concern, and your reply. I've tried other browsers. Chrome has a different issue, the webpage when using Chrome is so plugged up with ads that my assignment won't even load, and I honestly can't even tell whether it has the same problem as it does on Firefox. I've tried downloading add-ons for Chrome to disable some of the ads and popups, but they're not very intuitive and it seems they confuse the website itself with the ads. Do you have any suggestions for that? I haven't used Chrome much lately.
As for Internet Explorer, well... it has the same problem as Chrome, except it tends to crash before I even manage to get to the intended website.
I would say first uninstall all Flash Players on your system using our offline uninstaller on Page - Uninstall Flash Player | Windows and the download and install offline Flash Player installer for Mozilla from Installation problems | Flash Player | Windows see if this runs Flash Player on your system, Please also confirm if Flash Player is enabled on Mozilla --> Enable for Firefox
Please let me know if this helps.
Just figured I bring some resolution to the discussion. So Pearson tech support finally resolved the problem. Apparently Adobe had nothing to do with it at all!
Get this: they told me they found out that mystatlab was displaying the same error message for both Flash Player issues and Realplayer issues. Apparently my problem was having an outdated version of Realplayer, not Flash Player, yet the prompt only mentioned Flash Player. Weird, huh? Pretty awful mistake on the program's part, but Pearson did come through for me in the end.
I did find it odd that an Adobe product would be causing such problems; I was beginning to fear my system was just too old. Luckily I will be able to work on my statistics now. I really appreciate your contributions though! Thanks for lending me your time.
