Flash Player Installed but Not Working

I have Vista Home Premium (Service Pack 2) with all updates installed. My browser is IE 9. My control panel says that I have Active X version 10.3.183.7 installed--plug-in version not installed.

When I try to run a youtube video I get the message: You need to upgrade your Adobe Flash Player to watch this video. Download it from Adobe.

I follow the download link, it shows a successful download, but when I try a video again--same error message.

I didn't have this problem a couple of months ago. Don't know what I did inbetween.

as a quick answer, just download Google Chrome. Works right off the bat.

Activex allows remote scripts to be excuted on your computer.
Flash allows the viewing of flash encoded material.

There are two different installations for Windows Flash Player depending on if you use IE (which you said you did) and other browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.) Make sure you get the right one and restart your browser.

Re: Flash Player Installed but Not Working

Why don’t you download it again from the site? Just go to youtube and click on any video where it will ask for flash player, from there you can download it easily.
