Internet Explorer constantly wanting to install Adobe Flash
Posted on 2011-02-18
I have this problem on several different computers that I use. Internet Explorer 8 gets into one ore more of the following cases:
Case 1: every site that has flash causes the message "this website wants to install Adobe Flash ...." So I install it. No matter how many times the site is visited, it wants to reinstall. This happens on many websites. Annoying.
Case 2: not only does the above occur, but you get into and endless loop of being unable to install it, going through troubleshooting steps, then around and around, and finally back to the point saying it wants to install it. Needless to say, the website cannot be fully used at all at that point. Not only annoying, but infuriating.
Neither Firefox, Safari, or Chrome have this issue.
Is there a setting that might have some effect on this? If not a setting, then how can it be fixed?
Perhaps needless to say, I only use IE when I am forced to.
