locked
adobe flash player RRS feed

  • Question

  • Would anyone know why I cannot go to Adobe website to get the latest flash player without it locking up my computer totally?

     

    The only way I can do ANYTHING on it after going there is to reboot.!

     

    I go to at least 100 websites in a week and have yet to encounter this problem on ANY other site.

  • Hi,

     

    This behavior can be caused by the security programs. Please disable anti-virus, firewall and Internet security related programs.

     

    If the issue occurs, follow the steps below to reset IE settings.

     

    Reset IE7

     

    1. Click Start button-> Control Panel.

    2. Change to Classic View on the left pane and double-click the Internet Options icon.

    3. On the Security tab, click Default level button for each icon in the Select a zone to view or change security settings.

    4. Click to Programs tab, and then click the Make default button if it is not grayed out.

    5. Click to Advanced tab, click Restore advanced settings button in the Settings area.

    6. Click the Reset button in the Reset Internet Explorer settings area and Click OK.

    7. Click Apply, and then click OK.

     

    If the issue persists, the existed Adobe Flash Player may be corrupt. I suggest that you reinstall it. Please click Start, in the Start Search box type "appwiz.cpl" and press Enter, and uninstall the Adobe Flash Player. Then access Adobe website to reinstall it.

     

    Hope it helps.
