I am trying to play a video from my ISP home page and keep getting the message: Your system status We're sorry You need to update your flash player. I have downloaded the update but still get the same message. I have tried uninstalling all adobe programs and restarting then reinstalling adobe programs, but alas, still get the same message. Any ideas?

Try downloading the Uninstall for Adobe Flash to completely remove it before installing the latest version enter link description here

Thanks for that but it didn't fix it. It is still the same.

Try watching on Chrome instead of IE. Chrome (I'm told) updates itself automatically.

If using I/E go to View then Zoom set it to 100% reboot and see if it makes any difference.

If not leave it at 100% and try and download the latest version to your computer without running it.Use the uninstaller to remove the old version and reboot your computer to safe mode and then Install the new version that you have downloaded to your computer.

I had the same problem last year and it took me about 3 weeks to get it sorted.it may be something to do with active X.

All programs have to be closed when downloading it as there are many different programs that use Flash and it will not download properly if any of those are open.

Tried everything but still no joy with IE. Dowloaded firefox and yep, all works ok now. I will stick with firefox until I have more time to mess around. Thanks all.
