Hello aven_steph,

Use the utility and the following instructions to uninstall flash:
How to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plug-in and ActiveX control

Make sure you close all open windows (including IE) prior to running the utility. Once completed, use the following instructions to install flash again:
Adobe Flash Player Download Center - Windows

Let me know if this works for you.

Regards,

Ax

You will have to uninstall and reinstall both in Firefox and IE. They use different versions of the same pluggin.

Let's run through some possible fixes (once/if the issue is fixed, leave off following the rest of the instructions):
  • I trust you've already made sure your system is virus and spyware free, if not, please let me know
  • After doing the uninstall as per the instructions above, go to the C:\Windows\System32 directory and delete the folder called Macromed. You'll probably have to exit any web browsers you have open first. Try installing again after the folder is deleted.
  • Use the same instructions as before to uninstall the Flash Player, but this time use the following link to install it again (direct download link):
    Full Flash Player
  • In IE, go to Tools | Internet Options, select the Advanced tab, and click the Reset... button. Confirm the reset and then reinstall the Adobe Flash player.
Regards,

Ax
