orning,

wonder if you could help?
for the last month or so, since updating adobe flash player. I now have massive issues with you tube and other flash videos not playing correctly, verryyyy veerryy slow constantly buffering. I never had this problem before. All flash files use to load normally and play normally.

I have visited numerous forums and tried around fifteen suggestions to sort issues.

Foe example.
Uninstalling reinstalling flash
Installing older flash
deleting internet explorer and using fire fox!!
changing settings
Downloading different platforms.


to no avail.

Dont know whether this is important but had a massive issue downloading updates for windows. It would not update a platform. yellow shield permanently kept appearing then failing in update.


Please help ??


regards


Phil


also used new tuneup utilites, spy blaster to help combat, deleted cache, reinstalled java etc

so you've had issues with flash being laggy and then you also had issues with windows update. It's been several days since you first posted. Have you been able to install windows updates yet?

I recommend this tool to uninstall flash completely. This will remove all instances of flash from your system. After that just go back to Adobe and download the latest version.

I've had the same problem lately tuckers. I've uninstalled & reinstalled Adobe Flash to no avail. Where it fails to operate for me is trying to play Literati or FB's Wordscraper. Also, I can't seem to successfully install my Windows Updates. My virus scans are clear so I'm really at a loss as to what to do next. I'm running Vista Home version.
