    Hmm. Are you sure you are running the latest version? Also, what browser is this on?

    As that first post shows, I had literally just updated adobe. Was using Firefox at the time.

    Ok, try using something like Chrome or Internet Explorer. It may be a problem with the FF plugin.

    I don't use chrome, but will try IE. Any way to fix/repair the plug in?

    I know of no other way other than to use that uninstall tool and then install the latest version.

    Ok, what uninstall tool are you talking about?

    I think JC713 is referring to the uninstall tool you have posted for the flash player. have you tried using Revo Uninstaller. Really don't know what else would work. I have seen a lot of this problem with Vista. and the shock wave player.

    I see problems with Flash regularly with Windows 7 too. It's just one of the joys of computing and not worth working up a lather over. The iPad has no flash so one up to Apple.

    Thank you, I'll check it out. Its not a regularly happening situation, its more sporadic. I usually just go to SeaMonkey when it happens. No problem with SeaMonkey.

    That is what I got when I used IE on my Vista Home Premium

    I've installed it for IE & it works, so far.

    Best of luck. It seems to me like an issue with Vista and Flash Player.

    Yeah I meant the tool he linked.

    Yea, now I know why some of my local friends dumped or didn't go to Vista. Oh well, can't complain too much for a free laptop. :)

    Yeah free laptops are always good :D. You can always pop Windows 7 on there if you really care about it.

    I don't have a copy of it nor the $$$ for the RAM. This only has 2gb's of ram. :)

    I'm not going to get into browser wars :), but I loved google chrome when it first came out, but will never leave FF. I haven't used IE in 13 plus years.
    You should try SeaMonkey. :)

    Why do you not like chrome now? I will give SeaMonkey a try.

    I don't remember the reasons now, but I just downloaded it to give it a try, again.
