Unable to .... without Flash Player.

  frybluff 19:29 PM 22 Jun 12

Keep getting messages, last few days, when I try to access videos on internet, that I need Flash Player. I have f/p. Tried uninstalling and re-installing (from Adobe). No luck. One site mentioned a need for Javascript. I have j/s. Uninstalled and re-installed. Had a suggestion to make sure that was enabled, in my IEX9. It is. Would love any other suggestions. It's probably something very basic I've done wrong, or not done.

Many thanks.

If all else fails, use Chrome instead of IE - its something I had to resort to in a similar situation (Chrome has FP installed by default).

Check that Flash is enabled in add-ons and that activeX filtering is disabled.

With regards to Javascript - you don't install / uninstall that - the handling of Javascript is embedded in the browsers. With some browsers (e.g. IE) you can enable / disable it, that's all.

Javascript should not be confused with Java which something else and is a separate install (from java.com)

I know Flash Player didn't used to work in IE9 64 bit. That may have changed now, but just in case, try it on the 32bit version. I hardly ever use Windows now since changing over to an iMAC. If all else fails, try here. Adobe Forum

Most odd! WAS working in IEX9, 64bit, until a few days ago. I haven't changed any internet settings, or anything. Only thing, I can think, is perhaps some update is responsible.

As suggested by onethelimit1, works fine with Google, so at least solves immediate issue. Wonder if anyone else has this problem.

There's a possible fix here but it shows you need to delete personal settings.

My Os is 64 bit as is my IE and I have no probs so far. Fingers crossed.
