Adobe's Flash Player

At You Tube I started getting this error message "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player. "
I installed several times the Flash Player 10 and everything seems to be alright - except that when I get back to the You Tube pages the same error message is displyed. I tried to reconfigure IE Options but the problem persists. At Real Player I get the same error message.

Can anyone help me to tweak this?

Thank you, jcimarron, but your answer came when I had already solved the problem by myself and was preparing to close this subject. For you and ewittq: I checked the troubles page in Adobe's Flash Player and managed to get an uninstaller from Adobe - my entry at Control Pannel had disapeared and I guess the problem was linked to wrong entries on Register. Well, the saga begun a few weeks ago with a trojan from XP Antispyware. Friends here at Experts Exchange advised me Malwarebytes to clean the trojan. Malwarebytes is radical - it just cleaned everything and sent my Ascentive suit to quarantine for rogues. As a result, when I installed Flash Player 10 the entries on the Register where scrumbled and the application merely did not instal properly. After using the uninstal from Adobe and cleaning the Register with my recovered Ascentive tools I made a reboot, finaly managed to properly instal Flash Player 10 and everything worked 100%.

So, this subject is closed with the points for me, Thanks anyway for your suggestions - I hope these lines can help those many similar crashed fellows I found online, There's a little secret for IT: persevere and never despair. Urgence blinds the fool. Every problem has a solution - it's just a matter of time!...

I'm not using Symantec but Panda 2008.  The "trusted site" option doesn't work either. Now I have two IE (8 beta) panes opened in my desktop: one is the Adobe Flash 10 Download site with the "f" rolling on saying successful instal; on the other, the YouTube page requesting the Flash Player... it's a mad thing.

Fermanl--Try installing the latest jscript.

If that does not work, I wonder if IE8 Beta is the problem.  You could try uninstalling that.
Fermani--Thanks for the input.  Glad to hear the problem is solved.
Do you really see any advantage to using the Ascentive suite?
