      Windows Vista 64 bit, IE8 32 & 64, Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox

      after upgrade to Flash Player 11, FP is not working in IE 32bit, Google chrome safari and firefox

      tried to uninstall after saving file from this site on my desktop

      I have tried like 100 times

      internet options check security level for internet medium high and Trusted sites medium, scripting is enable


      Youtube works in HTML5

      Flash Player is not working

      run CCleaner

      I need help to fix flash player badly, if you need to see registry files, please tell me how to find these files, I can paste them here.


      After posting I did some research on registry





      I have these folders




      Shockwave10... no version, just (Default)   REG_SZ    (value not set), subfolder 3rdptycode..(Default)  REG_SZ    32505889


      I hope this information will help to identify the issue.

          1. Download the current 64 bit uninstaller 
          2. Close all browser windows and run the uninstaller 
          3. Restart Windows 
          4. Delete all remaining files and folders located in the following directories. (tip: copy and paste these paths into the path bar in an Explorer window) 
            • C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash 
            • C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash 
            • %appdata%\Adobe\Flash Player 
            • %appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player
          5. Verify that the file “FlashPlayerCPLApp.cpl” in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ has been deleted.
          6. The 64 bit Flash Player does not work with Vista 64 bit.
          7. Download the 32 bit installers: Flash Player for Internet Explorer / Flash Player for other browsers
          8. Close all browsers and run the installers.
          9. Google Chrome has an embedded Flash Player, contact Google Chrome for support as you can not change the embbed Flash Player
