hi, i am having a nightmare trying to work out what is wrong with my computer. I play at number of online casinos. Yesterday i deinstalled a few casinos, but after, i am no longer able to open other casino softtware. I would be redirected to an IE default page telling me i need to upgrade to flash player 6 or higher.

All these casino would previously run without a problem and i do not believe i deinstalled my flash player.

I have tried reinstalling flash player, as it does not appear on my add/remove programs tab, or in the start menu. Each time i download flash player and then try to open the "install flash player" icon that has appeared on my desktop. Once opened i am asked to select my language and thereafter it immediately starts to install. The install bar goes to 100% in a mater of seconds and then nothing.

I go back to open a casino and the same thing happens. Its not something to do with an individual casino as it is happening on all casinos using that software (microgaming) of which there are many.

Can anyone suggest what is wrong? Please

thanks!

I have got that page up and for the last hour it seems to be down. I phoned a geek friend yesterday and the intall page was down. I thought i was being blocked but he checked too, and said it was adobe's website.

I will keep trying and let you know.
