PROBLEMS WITH ADOBE FLASH PLAYER

SWF files in folders on your computer cannot be opened with Adobe Flash Player even if you done a clean Adobe Flash install.

If you left click on an SWF file an Adobe update window will appear. follow the instructions and download the latest version of Flash Player. You already have the latest version - Adobe Flash Player version 10.0.22.87.

To use another program to open SWF file go to either of these two articles:

Installing a Program to Run SWF Files
or
Installing Macromedia Adobe FlashMX to Run/Open SWF Files



DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ADOBE SHOCKWAVE PLAYER AND ADOBE FLASH PLAYER

If you install the latest version of Shockwave it will install in the
C:\Windows\System32\Adobe\Shockwave 11\ Folder.

Click "Start", "Control Panel", "Control Panel Home", then "Uninstall a program". You will see that "Adobe Flash Player 10 ActiveX" and Adobe Shockwave Player 11.5 are both installed.

Adobe Shockwave Player is for 3D games and entertainment, interactive product demonstrations, and online learning applications. Having just Adobe Flash installed is sufficient for most computer users. Install Adobe Shockwave Player if you feel you must.

Open Firefox. In Google search, type "animals swf"and Enter. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete. Click "Start Task Manager". Look down the list of programs that are running. You will see that "FlashUtil10B,exe" is running. Adobe Shockwave player is not running
.



RE-ENABLE TOOLBARS IN IE STOPPED BY THE RESET

Try going to "Tools", "Manage-add-ons" and enablling them again. If this doesn't work do the following:

Click "Start", "Control Panel", "Control Panel Home", then "Uninstall a program". Select toolbars and uninstall each in turn. Note the names of your toolbars.

Enter each name in Google Search and install them again.

That's it. If you choose not to install one or more toolbars they will still appear on the "View", "Toolbars" list but they will be greyed-out - until you reinstall them.
