Flash Player does not work with Standard User, but will work when browser is "Run as Administrator"

I don't understand why this is happening, but Flash Player will not work when a Standard User is using the browser. It will only work when the browser is run as an administrator. Any way to fix this? I've tried to uninstall, and reinstall the player, and it still wouldn't work.
The user is on Windows 7, 64-bit. Using IE 10.
Flash not working for Standard User - YouTube

Any update to provide at all here guys?  Again, in my situation, it's very much rights-related as a standard user doesn't even report that the flash player exists when testing it on the Adobe Flash Version Detection website (despite it showing up in Control Panel and under Add/Remove Programs).  I've already tried giving the C:\Windows\System32\Macromed and files/subfolders appropriate permissions for the standard user and still nothing.  If I either give the user in question full local admin rights or logon as the domain admin, then the Adobe Flash Version Detection website says Flash is installed and Flash works fine.

  • Scanner won't work with one user but will work with another

    Tonight I used my scanner and it worked fine.  Then a few minutes later I tried to scan another documentand it wouldn't work.  I finally logged off, and switched users (to Administrator) and I was able to use thescanner.   I don't know why it works for one user but not the other.  (This is very inconvenient.) What do I need to do to fix it?

    Hi Rustyintegrale,
    A couple of questions...
    1. Does the unit immediately kernel panic when power from the bus hits the drive?
    2. Does it happen in multiple users?
    3. If you startup, interrupt the boot process and boot to the startup manager (by holding option on startup) and then plugin the SuperDrive does it kernel panic there as well?
    When a peripheral causes a unit to go into this state, there's little that can be done to troubleshoot from a software perspective. Especially if your answer to all three questions above was "yes." You can certainly try resetting the PRAM & SMC, to see if there is any change. But, I think the next best step might be to bring the machine and this optical drive to see a qualified technician.

  • Lightning cable won't work with any computers, but will work with wall chargers

    My iPod Touch (5th Gen)'s cable is having some issues. I can not connect to any computers with it (I've tried two different iMacs, my Macbook Pro, and a car USB port that is used to play music through the car speakers). It used to work intermittently for a while, but now it doesn't work in any situation with computers. However, it will work with various power sources that have a USB port on them, but don't transfer data (A USB battery and a wall adaptor). This is using the AmazonBasics Apple Certified Lightning to USB Cable. (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FA4Y66U/) I've had this issue with both iOS 8 and iOS 7, even after completely wiping the iPod.

  • Flash player does not work under one user account.

    Flash player does not work under one of my user accounts.
    My system: I work with a mac mini with Mac OS X 10.6.8.
    What I have done:
    I installed the flash player maybe one year ago under my "first" user account. At that time this user account had had administrator authorization. In the meantime I had to change this "first" user account in an account without administrator authorization and created an administrator user with which I installed different programms. Lately, the message came up that it would be necessary to update the flash player. I did it; under the "first" user account, but of course with the administrator's password for installing. The installation had been "successful" - so I was told. But it did not run. I tried it again and again. Each time with "deinstallation" first. No way; it did not work.
    After asking Adobe for the reason of the problem, they suggested to install the programm directly under the administrator user. I did that (of course after deinstalling under the "first" user account) with the result, that flash player runs under my administrator and my "second" user account, but not under the first user account. There I am always told to update my flash player.
    With this result, I talked to Adobe. So they told me to contact the producer of the operating software, since this would be a mistake of the operating software.
    And here I am - full of hope to get help from you.
    Thanks for reading. And thanks in advance for helping me.

  • Flash Player Does Not Work with IE8 and Windows XP

    I am using Windows XP VR 5.1 with SP3. Flash Player does not function? So videos will not play that use Flash Player. The Adobe Support Site has been 000 Help because it is a free product. Microsoft says it is an Adobe problem. Finger pointing to the nth degree. I have loaded the latest version of Javascript and Flash Palyer.. Any ideas?

    Resetting IE is a shotgun approach, but may be much easier (and faster) for a user than trying to troubleshoot and find exactly which add-on, control, setting is causing issues. For a fast approach, you can reset IE, then start re-installing the add-ons you wish to use. Here is a kb that describes the process and even provides a Fix it: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737
    If you’d like to troubleshoot, here are some steps that will fix most issues with Internet Explorer and Add-ons. This can be more of a scalpel approach, and could help you save your cookies, stored passwords, etc.
    1)      Update your Windows software
    a.       Follow the steps below to view updates that are available for your computer.
                                                       i.      Click to go online to the Windows Update website

                                                     ii.      Click Custom to check for available updates. In the left pane, under Select by Type, click each of the following links to view all available updates:
    1.       High Priority
    2.       Software, Optional
    3.       Hardware, Optional
                                                    iii.      Select the updates you want, click Review and install updates, and then click Install Updates.
    b.      What do I do if Microsoft Update is not installed?
                                                       i.      Follow the steps below to install Microsoft Update and check for updates.
    1.       Click to go online to the Windows Update website

    6.       Select the updates you want, click Review and install updates, and then click Install Updates.
    2)      Turn off Internet Explorer add-ons you don't recognize
    a.       When you visit a website, an add-on might be downloaded without your knowledge, or you might be prompted to download an add-on. These add-ons might cause Internet Explorer to run slowly or become unresponsive. You should remove all Internet Explorer add-ons you don't recognize or trust.
    b.      How do I spot malicious add-ons?
                                                       i.      You can usually spot malicious add-ons under the Name column in the Manage Add-ons dialog box. Malicious add-ons might have:
    1.       Blank names.
    2.       Names that include random characters or have a sequence of numbers and letters (for example, fhriduvh.dll or f6rid8vh.exeas as opposed to Windows Messenger).
    3.       A publisher name you might not recognize.
    c.       How do I disable an add-on?
                                                       i.      Open Internet Explorer.
                                                     ii.      Depending on your version of Internet Explorer, do one of the following:
    1.       In Internet Explorer 6, click the Tools menu, and then click Manage Add-ons.
    2.       In Internet Explorer 7, click the Tools menu, point to Manage Add-ons, and then click Enable or Disable Add-ons.
    3.       In Internet Explorer 8, click the Tools menu, click Manage Add-ons, and then click Toolbars and Extension (if necessary). Also note the drop down list labeled “Show:” You are interested in Add-ons and Downloaded
    4.       Follow these steps to determine the version of Internet Explorer you're using:
    a.       Open Internet Explorer.
    b.      Press ALT+H, and then click About Internet Explorer.
    c.       How can I find which version of Internet Explorer I'm using if it won't launch?
                                                                                                                                i.      If you're unable to launch Internet Explorer you can use the following steps to determine the version you're using:
    1.       Click Start, click Run, type %ProgramFiles%\Internet Explorer, and then click OK.
    2.       Right-click iexplore, click Properties, and then click Version.
    3.       Under Item name, click File Version. The version number appears under Value to the right of File Version.
    a.       Note:If the file version number begins with 6, you have Internet Explorer 6. If the file version number begins with 7, you have Internet Explorer 7. If the file version number begins with 8, you have Internet Explorer 8.
    d.      If you aren't using the latest version of Internet Explorer, consider updating.
                                                                                                                                i.      How do I update to the latest version of Internet Explorer?
    1.       Click to download and install the latest version of Internet Explorer        
                                                                                                                              ii.      How can I update Internet Explorer without launching my web browser?
    1.       Click to go online to the Windows Update website.
    2.       Click Custom to check for available updates.
    3.       In the left pane, under Select by Type, click Software, Optional.
    4.       Select the Internet Explorer update, and then click Review and install updates.
                                                    iii.      Click the name of the add-on.
    1.       Click Disable. You might have to restart Internet Explorer for the changes to take effect.
    2.       Why do some add-ons include (Not verified) in the Publisher column?
    a.       If (Not verified) is displayed in the Publisher column in the Manage Add-ons dialog box, the add-on itself is not digitally signed even though the program that installed it might be. A digital signature verifies that a file comes from the person or publisher it claims to be from, and that no one has tampered with it since it was digitally signed.
    3.       How do I disable an add-on if I can't access Internet Explorer?
    a.       Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    b.      Double-click Internet Options.
    c.       Click the Programs tab, and then click Manage Add-ons.
    d.      Click the name of the add-on you want to disable, and then select Disable.
    e.      When the Add-on Status dialog box appears, click OK to close it.
    3)      Perform a free Full Service Scan using Windows Live OneCare safety scanner (not necessary if you don’t suspect viruses and are confident in the protection you have on your machine).
    a.       Go to the following website, and then click Full Service Scan: Windows Live OneCare safety scanner
                                                       i.      http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=56726
    If you are still experiencing issues, perform these steps. If the issue subsides, you may discontinue the remainder of the steps
    1)      Disable all add-ons (one at a time) until you can no longer reproduce the problem
    a.       Close all Internet Explorer windows.
    b.      Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    c.       Click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Internet Options.
    d.      Click the Programs tab, and then click Manage Add-ons.
    e.      Click the name of the add-on you want to turn off, and then, under Settings, click Disable.
    f.        Click OK.
    g.       Restart Internet Explorer. Continue using Internet Explorer the same way you did when you received a crash report. If Internet Explorer continues to crash after disabling this add-on, continue with the next step.
    h.      Repeat steps b through g for each add-on listed. When you can no longer reproduce the problem, the most recently disabled add-on is the cause of the problem. Once you discover the add-on that is causing the issues, you can uninstall it (use Manufacturer’s uninstaller if one is provided) then if you wish to continue to use the add-on, install the latest version from the manufacturer’s site.

    If I try and install it it says it is already installed. Your onsite  installer says it is not applicable to my machine.
    I have followed all the normal steps re enabling addons and active filters etc.
    all to no avail Pc is Dell 6 months old, Flashplayer has never worked on this machine. Last MS update mid Dec 2014.
    Version of flashplayer is 15....03.......

    Flash Player is a built-in component of Internet Explorer.  There's nothing separate to download or install.
    Firefox requires a different version of Flash Player (the NPAPI plug-in), which will be served to you if you go here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer using Firefox; however, there are some unique stability issues related to Firefox on Win8.1, and you're probably better off using Google Chrome if you want a more optimal experience with Flash Player.
    For problems where IE isn't being detected by sites that require Flash:
    First, confirm that ActiveX Filtering is configured to allow Flash content:
    https://forums.adobe.com/thread/867968
    Internet Explorer 11 introduces a number of changes both to how the browser identifies itself to remote web servers, and to how it processes JavaScript intended to target behaviors specific to Internet Explorer. Unfortunately, this means that content on some sites will be broken until the content provider changes their site to conform to the new development approach required by modern versions of IE.
    You can try to work around these issues by using Compatibility View:

  • Flash player does not work properly on Windows 7 32 bits

    Hello,
    My flash player does not work properly on Windows 7 32 bits with Firfox and IE8 (lasts versions).
    My Flash player version : 10.0.45.2, but I tried with version 9 too, with same problems.
    I have tried to uninstall, reboot, reinstall several times, ... witch did not worked.
    In fact, it works correctly on some sites, like youtube, but not on some others like :
    http://www.dailymotion.com/ => black screen instead of videos, right click gives flash context menu
    http://www.canalplus.fr/ => videos does not load, right click gives flash context menu
    http://www.myspace.com/ => no audio player, right click gives flash context menu
    some games in http://www.kongregate.com/ => black screen instead of games, right click gives flash context menu
    I have no problem with shockwave in http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/
    No problem too with flash player on http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
    But in the Global Privacy Settings panel (http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager02.htm l), I cannot change any settings :
    I cannot check boxes,
    My changes are not saved.
    In most of flash animations, videos, ...,
    when I click on parameters, I cannot do anything, even closing.
    when I am in full screen mode, the message "press escape to exit...." does not disappear.
    Last thing, all those problems was not there when I was on Windows XP, few weeks ago, and appear with my registered Windows 7 premium familly edition, with the same hardware configuration...
    Thank you for your help

  • My flash player does not work on my tablet.

    My flash player does not work on my tablet

    Your tablet uses Android OS.
    There is no more Flash Player for Android and there won't be another. Android is no longer compatible with Flash Player. Playing Flash content is very processor consumptive and it drains your battery, also shortening the life of it. Android (Google) recommends using either "Dolphin" or "Puffin" as your browser if you need to view Flash content with a mobile device running Android. They're both free in the GooglePlay store. These browsers use "server side" rendering to reduce the load on your device.

  • Has anyone been able to contact Adobe to learn why their Flash Player does not work on Mac OS 10.6.8, no matter how many updates you install?  This seems like a big error by Adobe.

    I have thee Mac computers with Mac OS 10.6.8, one of which is a Mac Pro.  No matter how many updates I install from Adobe, their Flash Player does not work on any of these 3 computers.  I don't know how to contact Adobe Systems about this problem, but I think it is their responsibility to make sure that their so-called "universal" software works proplerly on a relatively recent operating system like OS 10.6.8 that is still in widespread use.  When you install the updates, nothing happens -- not even an error message.  What is the point of a universal player that is not universal?  It works fine on my MacBook Pro with OS 9 Mavericks, but it does not work at all -- indeed, has never worked -- on my 3 Macs with OS 10.6.8.  Has anyone contacted Adobe Systems to find out why the Flash Player does not work with OS 10.6.8 and what they plan to do about it?

    Where are you getting Flash from?
    Get the appropriate dmg installer here and then run it.
    http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html
    If it still won't install, do these two things: First uninstall any Flash by going into the second level Hard Drive Library>Internet Plug-ins, and trash the Flash Player.plugin and flashplayer.xpt. Then boot into Safe Boot, Shift at the startup chime (give it much longer than a usual boot) and run the installer while booted in Safe Boot.

  • Adobe flash player does not work on Firefox, but does on Wind Exp

    I have reinstalled Adobe Flash Player many times and also reinstalled Firefox, but flash player does not work. Every tim I try to play something it tells me to install the latest version of flash player. Flash player works fine on on Windows Explorer

    IE uses a different version of Flash (ActiveX) than other browsers use, you need to install the Plugin version of Flash.
    1.Download the Flash setup file from here: <br />
    [http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe Adobe Flash - Plugin version]. <br />
    Save it to your Desktop.<br />
    2. Close Firefox using File > Exit <br />
    then check the Task Manager > Processes tab to make sure '''firefox.exe''' is closed, <br />
    {XP: Ctrl+Alt+Del = Processes tab}
    3. Then run the Flash setup file from your Desktop.
