Some people are still having trouble fixing Flash in Windows Vista, despite trying my original fix back in February. I am getting masses of emails and comments about it, mostly [fortunately] to say a successful fix, but a few not. So here goes with another line of attach:-
Go to the Control Panel > Choose Programs & Features > look for anything which is called ‘Adobe Flash Player’ or ‘Macromedia Flash Player’ and uninstall it. Make sure Internet Explorer is closed before you uninstall.
Download and install Flash from the following link (this is a manual install and not the usual Adobe Flash installation (but it is dead easy to do!): Adobe Flash Player download
Then you must restart the machine. Again, some people seem to be putting their machine into sleep mode and not actually restarting the machine. To make sure you restart do the following:-
Press Start > The ‘>‘ arrow to the right of the padlock symbol > Choose Restart
Then try the original post I did back in February: thetechangel.com/blog/2007/02/16/flash-player-and-windows-vista-fix/
If that still does not work for you try going to (in Internet Explorer):-
- Tools >
- Internet Options >
- Choose the Programs tab >
- press the manage ‘add-ons‘ button >
- In the window make sure that ‘Shockwave Flash object’ is enabled (enable/disable options are at the bottom of the window).
- Then OK your way out of the windows
- Close IE and then start it up and see what happens.
