Flash Player drove me crazy ...

So here's the problem. All of a sudden loads of web sites started directing me to Adobe to install the flash player that I already had installed!!

Very strange.. each and everytime it installed successfully, restarted IE7, I went back to the orginal website with the flash content and... you guessed it, still didn't work.

So I decided to uninstall it using Vista's unistall programs.. No dice, couldn't uninstall. So I was stuck with a PC that wouldn't play Flash, and wouldn't let me uninstall the player.. GREAT!!

Until I did a bit of digging about, and as always the last place I looked was Adobe's web site..

Uninstall using the Adobe utility

Of course, why didn't I think of that.

Find it here

Reinstall and it works

Flashplayer homepage

So if you have this problem, I hope this helped.
