Dear GeeksToGo helpers,

Hi, I'm Flashoreek and I have a problem. My problem is that everytime I play flash games on http://www.zone.com or any game that consists on flash, I always get this following error box in unpredictable times. It frustrated me to see I'm winning a game and next thing I know this thing pops up and says that I need to close Internet Explorer.

Here is the error message I am talking about:

I tried searching this error everwhere on google, but I get no results on actually solving the problem. Help would be great! :whistling:

Thanks.

Click start, control panel, add and remove, is adobe flash player shown at the top

If so, click remove, run disc clean up

Click start then search, include hidden and system files, look for flash9, if there aren't any

Download it here

Hi Keith,

I did what you requested. I uninstalled the one you said in Add/Remove programs and Disk Clean uped my drive.

In the search, I found flash9.ocx in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MACROMED\FLASH.

I am still not quite sure if this is fixed. I might have to test it a day or two.

Thanks for responding! :whistling:

EDIT: Nope, still giving me the error message... :blink:

Use add / remove to uninstall it

Use search, remove any flash9.ocx you find

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up Disc Clean Up

Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this

Check the anti virus is running after the reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor


Install Flash

Hey Keith,

Sorry for not responding sooner. Anyways, I again, have bad news. flash9.ocx APPEARS to be deleted, however, the registry keys are still present which is causing me grief. I have searched google and it seems that every week I see new posts on flahs9.ocx that is un-fixable. :whistling:

Many people have e-mailed Macromedia and Microsoft regarding this problem, but have not recieved responses.

I hope Macromedia fixes this issue soon!
