Unable to run latest version of ADOBE Flash Player

Q: Unable to run latest version of ADOBE Flash Player

Hi....

I have been running Secunia Online Software Inspector every other month to make sure I am up to date with all software.

Just ran it and it advised.

The detected version installed on your system is 11.2.202.233 (ActiveX), however, the latest patched version released by the vendor, fixing one or more vulnerabilities, is 11.2.202.235 (ActiveX).
I downloaded it via the Secunia site and ran it. But it did not do anything.

I then went to the Adobe website and downloaded it from there and ran it. But again it did not do anything.

I ran Secunia again to see if the latest version had been detected but it it still advising that the old version 11.2.202.233(ActiveX) is still there.

So, I am stuck and need some help from the experts.

I have run the log as advised, please see below. If you need any other info please let me now.

Preferred Solution: Unable to run latest version of ADOBE Flash Player

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Most of the plugins are that way. From the sound of it, fully featured 64-bit browsers are still a long ways off.

That's part of the reason you don't see 64-bit versions of Firefox.

All of a sudden, I am not able to download Adobe Flash Player (the latest version, of course). In the recent past, it would download within a couple of minutes. Now, it takes as long as 20-30 minutes, acting as if it is going to install. Ultimately, it comes back with an error: "Cannot contact reliable source." Thus, it doesn't install.

I am no longer able to watch videos or look at any site that requires flash player.

Any help would be appreciated, as I am not very good with technical issues.

FYI- I have Windows Vista, 32-bit.

But when I went back to the Download folder, the file was gone. I am 80% sure of this. Did something change with the latest version of Flash Player that would produce this state of affairs?

It's 10.2.156.32 and available at the 'usual' URL; http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ which, if you use IE, will get you the Active X version (and a Google toolbar if you don't uncheck it!) which is installed online, but, if you use any other browser, you should get the 'plain' version as an .exe file. Whichever browser you update, don't forget to run the Adobe uninstaller first;http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html

I haven't seen a Changelog yet so you may want to hold off updating until it becomes clear whether this is a 'security' upgrade or not (they usually are!).
 

A:New version of Adobe Flash Player!

Still no sign of a formal Changelog for the latest version but Adobe have now amended their website to refer to it, together with the following not very informative statement 'Adobe recommends that all Flash Player users upgrade to the most recent version of the player through the Player Download Center to take advantage of security updates'

Edit: I did post an URL to a relevant Adobe list of versions which has suddenly ceased to work and now points to an entirely different page! I have no idea how I managed that, apologies to anybody who saw this before the edit and was totally confused by it.

Whem using administrator user, it works, with any other user get's the message I must install it!

I also discovered that the firewall was disabled. Only using administrator account was able to make it work!

And almost the same with the antivirus: only makes updates using the administrator account!

Anyone could help?

A:Unable to make Adobe Flash Player work

Hello Joao and welcome to Seven Forums.

I would uninstall Adobe Flash using the official Adobe uninstaller. Flash has been known to have security issues and when something disables the firewall my first thought is malware. You can always reinstall the latest version of Adobe Flash later on.

Uninstall Flash Player | Windows

Adobe - Install Adobe Flash Player

Now run a full scan with whatever antivirus suite you have installed. Make sure you have the latest updates. No anti-virus product is 100% effective 100% of the time. It's always a good idea to run some additional on-demand scanners. These are recommended and they are all free. If your machine does have malware, I'd suggest using Windows Defender Offline first. It can scan your machine before booting into the operating system so malware has less of a chance to hide. Make the bootable disk on a different computer - one that you know is not infected. Even if WDO comes back clean, I'd still run the other scans "just in case."

Windows Defender Offline

Malwarebytes

ESET Online Scanner

If all scans come back clean I would next check for damaged or corrupt system files. Run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If any problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Please post back if anything helped or not.

Comcast Fan directs me to download "Adobe Flash Player " ....shouldn't version 10 supercede version 9? I don't want to have to do this anymore! Thanks!

Hi,

After removing a few malware and one rootkit from a friend's computer, I find myself unable to update adobe flash player.

When I double click on the installer (install_flashplayer11x32_mssd_aih) from the desktop, nothing happens, other than the installer disappearing from the desktop altogether, and if I look in the processes, I can see the installer running, but no progress window is present on my desktop.
This is true of Firefox AND IE.

We have IE 6. Say a user goes to MSN.com. The ad on the right is a Flash object. Some of our users will see that object flickering when scrolling up or down on the page or when hovering their mouse over it. It's quite annoying. Almost all users are running Adobe Flash Player 9, but I think I've seen this happen on systems with Macromedia Flash Player 8 as well. Other systems don't have the problem. I've seen this happen on one system and not another while both seemed to have the same Flash objects installed.

Uninstalling all Flash players using Adobe's prescribed Flash Player uninstall tool seems to work at first, but users later complain again. Note that they just about always end up installing Flash Player 9 again, because sites ask for it. I don't believe I've seen this on any XP systems at all, including my own, but most of our users have Win2K.

Does anybody know why this happens or how to permanently fix it?

Thanks,

A:Ie 6 - Flash Objects Flickering - Using Adobe Flash Player 9 Activex R28 (shockwave Flash Object V. 9.0.28.0)

More info: Adobe Flash Player 9, Macromedia Flash Player 8, and Macromedia Flash Player 10 all produce the same result--Flash objects that flicker when you put your mouse over any part of them. Moving Flash objects will flicker constantly while moving and stop flickering when the animation is done. SWF files (at least the one at www.stormwerks.com/linked/stuf/AYB2.swf) work without a problem when using Adobe Flash Player 9.

If I don't have Adobe Flash Player 9 installed, the Win2K machines prompt me to install them for almost any site that uses Flash (I guess most recent Flash objects cannot be viewed with the older Macromedia Flash Players).

Any suggestions?

This pop-up is driving me crazy! It pops up on the video screen I want to watch in Fox News website -- I haven't noticed it popping up on other sites as yet. It will list the site asking for permission to store information on my computer. The link I have attached below gives instructions on how to remove this pop-up. Is this flash player thing safe or is it some kind of virus or malware? The attached link refers to it as spyware. If I were to remove the Flash player program, will it affect playing games or whatever on my laptop. I need help, please.

The link above is just another ad-site trying to get you into buying spyhunter. I would not do what they recommend. Can you provide the link where you get the pop up so I can try it. In addition, what browser are you using ?

Hello all, Please post a link to Adobe Reader. I tried their web site, but the download came with a bunch of 3rd party software.  There is no way to disable the 3rd party software during the install..  thx!Edit: Moved topic from Windows XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:Linked to latest version of Adobe Reader

I believe that is true of all of Adobe's products. You have to uninstall the unwanted McAfee nonsense after the Adobe product is installed. Ridiculous.

I downloaded Adobe 8 off their official site and then experienced all kinds of problems with it but mainly it made multiple windows (about 12-15). I managed to shut all of them down and then I ran Norton Anti-Virus (latest) and SpySweeper (latest) full scan on both and didn't turn up anything. The computer seems to be okay. I'm not experiencing any problems. Can't find any evidence of Adobe 8 being on my system. I did a thorough search. Of course, I suppose that doesn't necessarily mean it couldn't be hiding out somewhere??? I did interrupt the download though. There was an icon that showed up along side the other icons and it said it was a Resume Adobe Downloads. I put it in the Recycle Bin. I'm going to delete it once I get off this forum. Any advice out there? Has anyone experienced any problems with Adobe downloads recently? One never knows what is going to happen next on the net!

A:Problem Downloading Adobe Latest Version

Hello zineeditor,

I would say that while you were closing those multiple windows you accidently stopped the Adobe download; hence, the resume download icon.
Seeing you mentioned that you were going to delete that icon, there is only one way around this issue now...that is go back to the Adobe site and download the update again.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
