Hi, I hope this is the right forum for this question!
I have a Sony Vaio PCG-7V2L laptop running Windows Vista. I use Internet Explorer. A few days ago, a window from Adobe popped up, telling me that a newer version of Flash player was available, and asking if I would like to download it. I said yes, unfortunately. Now Flash player does not work--ie, YouTube is non-functional, any website with Flash videos have blank spaces, etc. They all just have, rather than the video, a message that I need Flash Player 9 or later, with a link to Adobe's download page.
I have uninstalled previous versions and reinstalled (rebooting as well) more times than I can count.
I have done everything that Adobe's help center suggests (the website is http://kb.adobe.com/selfservic.....;sliceId=1), including downloading the file and then installing it (rather than just installing it via the website), messing with IE's ActiveX settings (which made McAfee shriek at me), downloading and running SubInACL, running the installer as an administrator, etc.
Nothing worked. I eventually uninstalled Flash Player 10.0.12.36 (which is what the new version is), and tried to install 220.127.116.11 (which is what I assume my last version was, although I actually never paid attention), and it won't work either, now!
Note: I have not done anything different with McAffee or any popup blocking settings or anything, really. Flash videos used to run just fine. The only thing that has changed in my system was the fatal error of allowing my computer to download the new Adobe Flash player...
I hope someone can help. I don't think anyone from Adobe pays attention to the Forum on their website, and there are a bunch of confused people over there on multiple web-brousers and systems, all with the same problem..
Thanks so much! --Christina
