Keeps asking to install Flash PLayer when I already have??? Help Please!!!

Flash player worked perfectly fine on my computer and I've had it for about 2 years. But now for the past 2 weeks whenever I turn off the computer or log off the next time I sign in it says I need to install flash player. I have installed it many times but it keeps doing the same thing. I'm tired of installing it everyday so some one please help!!

Hi Gagan, Thanks for the info. You say sometimes the DLM will appear. If you can remember, was it used the last time that you uninstalled and installed?
It is supposed to install the FP and then disconnect, but sometimes it does not.
My suggestion would be to uninstall per http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html  This is the offline Uninstaller.
Pay close attention to the last part of this article about rebooting when using IE.
This is the offline Installer :
http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_ax.exe
Download the Installer and run from your desktop after the Uninstaller is finished. Be sure to not have any Flash running,
close all browsers, check system tray, etc.
Just read over the instructions carefully regarding Security Settings, Permission issues, Norton Security, etc. before Installing.
If you have any questions prior to uninstalling/installing, just post.
Thanks

  • Why do websites ask me to install flash player when I already have the latest version?

    Windows 7 (64 bit)
    IE 9
    Flash 11.5.502.135

    That discussion doesn't seem the same as my problem.
    Here's a screen cap:

    Check for new 64 bit software for the modem, other wise you I'll probably have to boot your Mac in 32 bit mode first.. And then every time you want to go online.
    I have the Sierra wireless 306 and have their 64 bit lion software installed. Works well.
    Best.

  • Firefox keeps asking to install Flash. When I attempt this, I get an error message stating it failed. Flash works in Google Chrome, but not FF.

    I don't know what happened but Firefox keeps asking me to install Flash. When I attempt to install the program, I get an error message that it has failed. There is no other information given and I'm just left hanging. I've tried this over twenty times with the same results. I've even uninstalled and re-installed Firefox, but this continues. I'm unable to watch any YouTube videos. I then installed Google Chrome and all is working fine. I can't stand the Google company though and really with I could continue using Firefox. Why is GC working for me any FF not? How can I fix this?

    Google Chrome comes with its own Flash plugin, so doesn't require to install Flash separately.
    You can find the latest Flash player versions for Firefox on this page.
    *http://www.adobe.com/special/products/flashplayer/fp_distribution3.html
    You may have to run the Flash installer as Administrator (right-click: Run as Administrator) and make sure that Firefox and possibly other browsers are closed.

  • Upgrading Flash Player when I already have the latest verison installed on my computer

    I have the latest verison of Adobe Flash Player on my computer which is Adobe Flash Player 11 Active X  ( verison 11.9 ) and also I have Adobe Flash Player 11 Plugin and while playing Farmville2 on Facebook, I am asked to download or upgrade my Adobe Flash Player. I have already been asked 3 times in the 45 mintues to upgrade my Player. Is this really neccessary that many times??

    You need to clear your browser cache and history so that the "cookie" which indicates a lower version isn't sent to Facebook.

  • Why directed to download flash player when I already have it?

    this is my first problem encountered while downloading Adove Flash Player. I was trying to watch video on you tube. after i clicked the start button to begin, it asked to download "Adove flash player" to watch this video. I was never asked to do this. I tried to download it anyway. After  running 99 seconds and 1 sec left, it paused. I clicked pause box it changed to running security scan. I clicked run again.Then "user account control dialog box came up and asked if I want to allow the Flash Player to change settings. I clicked yes. Then the Flash Player Installer window appeared and it shows that Chrome is already installed in my computer. Is there anyone who can help me with this?. I tried several times with same results. Thanks in advance.

    Hi, Pat
    Thankx for your reply. I was away busy doing other things. My OS is window 7 and it happened only with ATT.Yahoo. When I clic video on You Tube, it says  I need Adove Flash Player installed in red box. And right beside it, there was another note and it says "You are using outdated browser, which You Tube no longer supports. Since some features on You Tube may not work. You are viewing a lightweight version of the video page. Go back to the regular page.". When I clic the " go back to the regular page" viedeo started to play. It never happened before until I reported on Wednesday. Same video played normal on Google Chrome. My current Adove Flash Player is 11 Active X.

  • Sites want me to download newest version of Adobe Flash Player when I already have it

    I am having difficulty when at a site that I want to watch a video on (most recently a work site) and I am told I need to update Adobe Flash Player. I double check andI Have the same version I am being insructed to download. I tried going to Security under System Prefences and under Apps allowing from anywhere in case that was the problem. Still, I cannot watch the video. Any ideas of the problem?  I was just watching videos from this same work site without this coming up. I have also had it come up on other sites (less trusted than this site) and could not watch the video because of the same reason. Ihave AdobeFlashPlayer set to automatically update.

    Assuming Allan's advice is not correct, and you do run the installer, I think I've heard of that problem and it involves removing the old Flash plug-ins, then install the new version. I don't use it so I don't know what they are called, but will be the /Library/Internet Plug-ins folder.
    You can go here and enable HTML5 in YouTube so you don't have to use Flash: http://www.youtube.com/html5
    Most(?) of the content is HTML5, but you may run into videos where you still need Flash.

  • I'm constantly asked to install Flash Player 10.1

    It's insane the amount of times I'm asked to install Flash Player 10.1, I then click on install and the next window tells me to close Internet Explorer, Yahoo and Windows Messenger. I do then a few minutes, few hours or the next day it's the same thing over and over again and it's getting on my last known nerve.
    I have Vista Home Premium 32 bit, Internet Explorer 9
    Please help save my sanity, I live on the 5th floor of my building and the window is open. I trust you know where this is leading.
    Thank you

    Hi rb, That link to "adobe-support" that was posted to you, disregard. That is not Adobe Support.
    Be careful following advice from anyone newly registered.

  • Why does Facebook Farmville 2 keep asking me to install flash player when it is already installed in firefox?

    My os is windows 8.1.  I use firefox.  I play facebooks farmville 2.  It keeps asking me to install the new 3d flash player which is already installed. I've followed your steps and nothing has worked.  I cannot play farmville 2 on firefox because of the necessity of installing the flash player which is already installed.

    Are you using AdBlock Pro or another ad-blocking or anti-tracking technology?  If so, you should try disabling it.
