  I have a computer that I have downloaded, and redownloaded flashplayer, but everytime I go to open a video off the internet, it is asking me to download flashplayer.   It is running Windows Vista.  Any ideas?

Hi. If you go to Add and Remove Programs, does it show as installed there? Do you use 32bits or 64 bits Windows?
If you using 64bits, you must have Flash to x64 Internet Explorer also if you using IE x64.

are you sure it is not the site having the issue? Have you tried to access from a different system?

You are right, i got confused with Java, and not flash.
 
@syssolut
Can you try to open Youtube and after killsometime.com and check if you can see the movies?
If you can, maybe its a problem with the website.

I assume you have uninstalled and then reinstalled flash... Not just installed overtop the old software...

Another option would be to downgrade your Flash. This would require uninstalling and selecting the downgraded version. I have had to do that with select laptops that had issues with the newest software.

You are using Internet Explorer right? Wich version?
I advise you to uninstall flash, then uninstall IE, and after reboot install it again. Then go to youtube and click on "install flash".
See if it changes anything.

I uninstalled flash.   I had version 7 of IE so I updated  to version 8.  I went back to youtube.com and downloaded the version of flash via their link.   After downloading the flash, it still did the same thing, it says you need to download flash.   Where can I get an older version of flash as suggested?

Flash is at 10. Go to adobe.com and download it from there.

I hacve tried everything.   I uninstalled over and over, I am using IE8, I have downloaded from Youtube, Adobe.com , but it still will not work in IE.   It works fine in Mozilla and Chrome.   I have reset settings in IE still nothing.   I am wondering if it is just Vista settings stopping this?

I tried "Compatability View" and it did not change.  I had just upgraded from IE7 to IE8 and it is happening in both.
