[color]Hi Everyone! For over a year now, my computer has had a funny quirk where it just loses adobe flash player. I have to go re-install it. I've never understood why it does this about once a month but it really didn't concern me.

I have Windows XP and IE. I've been to adobe over 7 times now and installed Flash 10 and some other version of it. Nothing happens exept a couple of times the entry is made in the ADD/REMOVE list - but the 2.7MB isn't there. It's just got a title and no substance.

I simply cannot intall it. Adobe alwasy says "Install Completed". But it's not there!

Any kind of ideas or help would be very appreciated!

Flash isn't stand-alone program.. It's a plug-in.

You use it when watching videos on YouTube, for example. If you can play videos on YouTube, your Flash is working.
