Due to recent enhancements to the Adobe Flash Player installers, you can now remove the player only by using the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller. To remove Flash Player, simply download and run the appropriate uninstaller for your system

get the flashplayer uninstaller
Save the file to your system, choosing a location where you can find it (for example, your desktop).
Quit ALL running applications, including all Internet Explorer or other browser windows, AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger, or other Messengers. Check the Windows system tray carefully to make certain no applications which might possibly use Flash Player are still in memory.
Run the uninstaller. This will remove Adobe Flash Player from all browsers on the system.

get the uninstaller here...run it
then get the flash player and shockwave player here...install them both
reboot
then go here to test them

yes, I tried Flash Player uninstaller as well, and did all you've mentioned here, but still it didn't work. But I'll try once again to be sure.


EDIT: so I've done this once again step by step like you said, and still doesn't work.

I'm really loosing any hope

I was having a problem like that which seemed to come out of nowhere. I tried everything I see here. It ended up being my ISP or IP I think.
Once I changed IP, problem went away

because it seems to be working at least at the test link..(flash and shockwave) please try the following:

1. Temporarily disable popup blocking software installed on your computer to test.
2. Allow YouTube.com as a trusted site in your Firewall software.
3. Ensure other applications like Quicktime, iTunes, Real Player, or Windows Media Player aren’t set as the default streaming application, as this might affect the video player.

you could just uninstall both quicktime and real player...both are bloatware at best...
use the add/remove in the control panel to uninstall them
download the quicktime and real player alternatives here first though...much lighter on your system and as far as your concerned they will work just like the other versions
that link is to the quicktime alt...the real player one is on the left side in the tools section

How do you make sure that Quicktime, iTunes, Real Player, or Windows Media Player aren’t set as the default streaming application? That probably won't fix the fact that I can't see deviantart, but that could help with my youtube maybe?


Atanvardo: Some people on deviantart suggested taking your computer to another internet connection (a friend's house or something) to make sure the problem isn't your internet service provider. I hope you're connected from a wireless laptop ... or else you're in the same sinking boat as me. >_<

actually yeah >.> we're in the same boat...

I could call my internet service provider and ask them to reset my modem.. maybe that would help. But I have to wait till holidays are over.
I'll try that option with quick time alternative, however I always had those programs and it hasn't blocked YouTube or Deviant before.

a weird thing just happened ...
I opened Deviant Art and of course it still didn't work properly. While being on that site I opened tools->options->content->advanced (in JavaScript panel) and I enabled all options (only two were enabled before). I closed it and clicked on a pic to try if it turns to full size (which didn't work) and it worked O.o just like enabling those options helped.. I almost got happy that it's fixed but then it stopped working again... and I didn't change a thing... this is really weird.

ok, so I did it for the 10th time. Closed all programs that might be connected to Flash. Uninstalled Flash (I used uninstaller that I downloaded), Shockwave, Quicktime, Real player. Also removed 'Macromed' folder from 'system32' folder. I restarted my PC. I installed Flash for Firefox, Shockwave, Java, (checked if YouTube and DA works - it doesn't) then Real Player and Quicktime. I restarted my PC. Nothing...
