Help any one know why i can't view flash? i.e. the Netto deal mag etc I've been on the Adobe website and checked i've got the latest version installed "You have version 10,1,102,64 installed"

But when i click on an item to view i just a the spinny round circle as if its loading but it never gets past this?

Any ideas what i need to do, it used to work a few months ago but now its not, think it may have been when i installed the update for it but not sure.

I'm running win7 64 bit.

Thanks for any help ;-)

Thanks but like you said i'd prefer Flash to work as there's numerous other sites that need it to view them correctly as well.

Thanks for time spent uploading it though ;)

use ccleaner to empty temp etc and try and load the page again the fact you have a spinning logo it's trying to load so maybe try with another browser or set your browser back to default. Maybe your internet is bad today and is very very slow.

Can you perform a manual install rather than via web update. Some anti virus checkers block automated installs since they assume they are popups and also since Flashplayer runs as an ActiveX component in IE, some overzealous antivirus products treat the ActiveX components as malicious.

First thing to do is to download the following 2 files:

http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash_player.exe
http://www.macromedia.com/go/full_flashplayer_win_ie

Disable your real time anti virus scanner. This doesn't mean uninstall the anitvirus package (when I asked somebody to disable the scanner, they uninstalled the whole package!)

Run the first file to uninstall Flashplayer. It is important to do this because if FlashPlayer was not correctly installed in the first place due to certain parts of the install being blocked, it may not reinstall.

Next, run the second file to install Flashplayer and then re-enable your real time virus scanner.

If you continue to have problems, you can set security settings as per the following:

Downloaded the uninstaller and uninstalled it.

Downloaded the latest version again and installed it, said successful install - Still didn't work.

Downloaded this what you suggested: http://www.driversupdate.org/how-to-fix-adobe-flash-player-not-working.html

And it came up with some errors but wanted £19.99 from me to get rid of them, so uninstalled it.

Downloaded ccleaner and fixed all the errors but its still not letting me play flash content i'm again just stuck with the spinning circle oO

Haven't got a clue how to get it to work as i've tried everything now :{

Windows with other browsers, such as Firefox, Google Chrome or Opera
To use Firefox or other (not Internet Explorer) browsers with Flash Player on your 64-bit system, do the following:

1.Download the 32-bit version from the browser vendor's website. For example, Firefox is a 32-bit Web browser you can download from http://www.mozilla.org/firefox.
2.While using the 32-bit version of your Web browser, go to: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer (the Flash Player Download Center).
The download center installs Flash Player in your 32-bit Web browser. You are now ready to view content using Flash Player in your 32-bit browser.

Note: Make sure you go to the Flash Player Download center in your 32-bit browser. If you try to go to the download center using a 64-bit Web browser, you will see a message from Adobe and a link back to this page, because you cannot install the current 32-bit Flash Player in your 64-bit Web browser.

you tried that eg a different browser and it still did not work. http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/000/6b3af6c9.html

Update your malware and spyware solutions and scan and check manage addons and services

Ive seen this before. Not only do you need to uninstall... you need to remove the registry entry also.

Sorry, I didn't mean download the software from the url I provided, but to follow the security settings given. Did you follow the security settings, in particular the ActiveX settings. Links to downloads for fixes are very much hit and miss.

If you are able to view Flash media in another browser (as advised above) then the problem has to be an ActiveX problem since Flash playback in Chrome and Firefox do not use ActiveX. If you can try on another browser that will help to eliminate ActiveX (or its settings as a potential issue).

Also, flash playback on high definition media will make use of hardware acceleration. If your hardware does not support it, right click the flash control (i.e. where you see the circular wait cursor which you amusingly described as a "round" circle) you can go to Settings and uncheck Hardware Acceleration but I am not convinced that this is the problem you have. I think, as mentioned above, try it on another browser first. Of course, I am assuming you are using IE and if this is not the case then we needn't worry about ActiveX.

I'm using AOL and IE and both don't run Flash, tried it on Firefox and it works fine? So it must be the ActiveX as you've all mentioned so what to do next?

use firefox! AOL is ancient so not surprised it fails with flash and IE is awful compared to FF.

How do i check its Explorer 32-bit?

check the shortcut path

32 bit (default on win7)

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

64 bit

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"

From the link I provided there are settings for ActiveX. You can try applying those settings.

To determine whether you are using 32 bit or 64 bit IE, click Help and then "About Internet Explorer". If the information provided does not show 64 bit then you are using the 32 bit version.

Just checked and its 32 bit. I'm trying to view the Netto magazine. I go to their homepage and the little magazine loads up but as soon as i click the magazine i get another screen thats states zmags and then just get the circular loader and it stays at that.

Downloaded this: http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/updaters/10/flashplayer_10_ax_debug.exe

Installed it and its still the same.

Think i might just use Firefox :(

So I assume you have attempted to apply the ActiveX security settings and also attempted the install with your realtime virus scanner turned off (as I am aware that Computer Associates products and possibly others, interferes with ActiveX controls).

Also, to test your ActiveX functionality, use this url:

http://www.pcpitstop.com/testax.asp

If you use non IE browsers, you will not be able to run ActiveX controls.

It is true that IE (I refer to IE8 specifically) does experience more attacks than FF in terms of numerical totals but NOT as a percentage, despite IE being a MORE secure browser so it's not so much of a loss running FF. IE suffers more attacks not because it is inferior but it is more popular. The statistics do show that the percentage of attacks that have been blocked by IE is higher than that of FF. When people tell you to use one or the other they are not aware that IE is more successful in blocking attacks but it is attacked more often. The media will manipulate this information to make a sensation out of it and all too often, many users are confused.
