Flash and Shockwave will not play,install or properly uninstall.
All directions followed that were listed within adobe support and Microsoft support.
Stand-alone Uninstaller did not resolve issue.
Stand Alone Installer did not resolve issue.
Adobe update site will not install,detect or interact...just freezes up
All macromedia content on all websites is not loading,playing or showing.(just a box with the heralded 3 shapes in primary colors suspended within a white box)
Oddity experienced in the past: - In the past, Microsoft Picture-It Express 2001 would 'block" or halt the operation of any flash. Even though this is just a picture editing program, for some odd reason , upon uninstalling Picture-It 2001, flash content began to work again on websites.(and all it took was a revisit to the Adobe website, w/o a reinstall!...it just started working again)
This led me to believe that something within Picture-It 2001 was affecting the macromedia abilities.
I had Picture-it in my comp recently when this happened, and re-uninstalled it....
no change this time.
any help would be greatly appreciated....
End of my rope.
(EDIT added)....i also used System Restore also.
