I can get Adobe Flash player to work in Firefox but when I go to IE it tells me to update to the newest version, same goes for AOL. When I try to download the newest version it with gives me an error about not being able to install google toolbar but if I choose not to download the toolbar it says that the installation was complete (no real installation process though). Yet when I got to youtube or any other flash site IE and AOL say the same thing that I need to update

I have removed and reinstalled both IE and Adobe Flash player with the same bad result. I have also tried setting everything back to default in IE.

TheTechEase--Try uninstalling whatever Flash version you now have using the Adobe uninstaller and then installing the latest version.
