Security :: Adobe Flash Player - Local Storage-Flash Player Settings?
Sep 15, 2014
It pops up on the video screen I want to watch in Fox News website -- I haven't noticed it popping up on other sites as yet. It will list the site asking for permission to store information on my computer. The link I have attached below gives instructions on how to remove this pop-up. Is this flash player thing safe or is it some kind of virus or malware? The attached link refers to it as spyware. If I were to remove the Flash player program, will it affect playing games or whatever on my laptop.
Well, I can't beleive that is so hard to get rid of Adobe's Flash player 11 from IE11! I've noticed that some YouTube videos are choppy and stutters with IE11 so I decided to downgrade the Flash player to more stabile version like 10.3 but this sucker doesn't allow me. Why the heck M$ didn't include a remove option? I don't know which one is worse, M$ for implementing such stubborn crap in Windows or Sadobe for releasing more and more crappy versions.
WIN 8 - i tried to find the controls/settings for Adobe Flash Player - don't want all those animated ads running - does my browser (Google Chrome) affect that or Internet Explorer (which is now loading as MSN and i can't seem to change that-happened after i accidentally removed IE from taskbar - now when loaded from ''tiles' it loads MSN) anyway .. i was able to go to CP/downloads & saw i did 'disable' Adobe Player but the adds still run. Is there more than one type of ''adobe'' ?
is it possible to disable all IE addons including adobe flash player using regkey? I tried "HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain", "Enable Browser Extensions", "REG_SZ", "no" but not working
How can I do that properly? I used the uninstaller from Adobe but the residual files in system32 and in sysWow64 those Flash.ocx files and such, I tried Safe mode and other ways, are they needed to remove in order to have a proper reinstall and how to delete them? Access always denied
It has to do with Shockwave Flash Object, in IE, can I remove this add on to let these files be deletable. I managed to move out the Macromed folder out of system32 but so much for it. in syswow64 cant even move out the folder
I bought a new Lenovo Y510p laptop a few months back, and just last week I decided to transition from my old computer to this laptop. The OS was Windows 8 for the laptop, later upgraded to 8.1, and everything was fine until about three days later when suddenly I realized that whenever I went on Youtube or any website with flash-based content(using Chrome btw) AND games such as WoW they crashed.
I assumed it was a problem with the new 8.1 or something with updating the graphics drivers, so I decided to completely factory reset back to 8. Re-installed Chrome and my games, and it worked fine again for a day, then started to crash again. At that point I downgraded my windows 8 to windows 7. Re-installed everything again, but it still crashed. Can't play youtube, flash content, or any games(not even the pre-installed windows games like minesweeper, solitare, etc.).
I have installed the newest web browsers: Opera, Firefox and IE. I have the lastest version of Adobe Flash Player. When I want to watch any video on Youtube - it's almost impossible, cause it jams. Even when I down it to 360p. It's about 50 percent of CPU usage, sometimes even more. I tried to install older version of Flash Player - no effects.
When I try to play any kind of video, even an ecard, I see a message that I need to get the latest Flash player version. When I click on the provided Flash icon, I am taken to a page showing me how to figure out why my Flash player is not working. I then find that my Win 8 operating system already has the current (as of 4 months ago, anyway) Flash player embedded somewhere in it.
how to make the Flash player work? Is there a special way to awaken it? Getting tired of being unable to make video content work.
My copy of 64-bit Windows 8.1.1 has version 12 of Flash in C...SysWOW64Macromed.
I'm not sure why I have this out-of-date version of Flash on my computer. My copy of IE 11 has an up-to-date version of the Flash plug-in (currently v.14) and my copy of Google Chrome has its own up-to-date Flash player.
I haven't found a way to update the Flash player in C...SysWOW64Macromed, but in any case I don't know why it needs to be there in the first place.
Can I safely uninstall the Flash player in C...SysWOW64Macromed?
I want to stop child from playing games and playing videos on internet. I am currently using Google chrome and Internet Explorer. I had disabled flash player in Google chrome but that was showing the option to enable flash player.children clicked on that and enable plugin again to play games on-line. Is there any other safe way that could be difficult for children to access.
When using Flash Player within IE10 in 8, audio and video synch is fine at standard small screen, but when I go to full screen they do not synch. The video is behind timing with the audio. It looks as though the video skips now and then trying to catch up with the audio. I dual boot with 7 and do not have a problem with Flash within IE10 there, so I'm assuming it's not hardware. This happens on any site using Flash.
All the settings in both Flash Players are the same. The only difference is that my 7 OS is 32 bit with 32bit Flash whereas my 8 OS is 64bit with 32bit Flash.
I've been using Flash Player in the Metro version of Chrome for quite a while now, and it's been fairly useful since the the Metro version of IE is oddly crippled. I like the Metro interface, but not the way web browsers have been crippled to use NO plugins.
Just today, Chrome started giving me a pop-up message saying that I can't use Flash Player unless I run in legacy/desktop mode.
Is this just my version of Chrome messing up in some way, or was this change actually made? I really don't understand why on earth they would cripple the Windows 8/Metro mode all of a sudden. What's going on?
So I like to listen to espn podcasts. Yesterday I listened to one just fine. Today, its telling me "You do not have the correct Flash plugin installed. Get Flash Now" . I clicked on the link and it took me here Flash Player Issues | Windows 8
Basically, I am going in circles on that site. I don't get what is wrong.
I'm running Windows 8.1 Update 2 and I'm having a issue where Adobe Flash crashes randomly and get a script hang error. I have uninstalled Adobe flash and reinstalled and wiped cache in firefox and still haven't resolved the issue.
Which registry settings should I change to set the top two default Windows rules back to 'Unrestricted' ?
I set up some rules in the local security policy some time ago when there was fuss in the news about the cryptolocker virus. They looked a lot like the rules above (I found that screenshot online as I can't take one myself, read on..)
Today I was installing some software that wanted access to the areas I restricted. I temporarily disabled the rules, then re-enabled them. Being a dumbass I also set the top two rules (which are Windows default rules) to Disallowed!
Over the following 10 minutes various aspects of my PC stopped working, telling me that the local security policy prevented access. I couldn't even get into the Control Panel or the Local Security Policy screen to change it back, once I realised what I had done. I rebooted the machine - it won't come back up
I've tried a system restore by booting from the installer on USB (which did not work, it grumbled that it could not restore due a file locked by anti-virus) so I think I've got two options:
Refresh my system using the Windows 8 tools - but I suspect that might leave the LSP rules in place, as it retains my settings & preferences.Hand edit the registry to correct the settings.
Option 2 is looking best, I can get into RegEdit from the recovery console, but I'm not sure what to edit and what to set it to? This is on Windows 8.1 Pro...
My DVD drive shows up properly in 8.1, however when I insert a dvd, it does not open autoplay. If I right click and select autoplay, nothing happens. When I right click, it also gives me the option to" read using img burn". If I double click the dvd, " application not found".
How can I get it, to where a dvd will play properly in WMP? I do have WMP set as default for video files.
I just got my new Win 8 computer and going crazy trying to get the thing set-up..I'm not tech savy at all. I looked on the internet and was really confused. I just have plain Win 8, no pro. Then I notice about media player for N and NK. I'm an old lady just looking for plain Windows Media Player that's compatabile with my Win 8
I am trying to copy a CD to disc using Media Player. When I try to set the destination location by clicking CHANGE in Rip settings/More options/Rip music to this location, nothing happens. I can't set a location. When I click the Rip CD button, I get the message "Windows Media Player cannot find the file. If you are trying to play, burn, or sync an item that is in your library, the item might point to a file that has been moved, renamed, or deleted."
The Media Player sees the CD and can play the tracks from the CD, so it's not that it can't find the CD.
Has there been any updates to the windows media player for the RTM version? This thing should have been updated centuries ago. I'm sure some people might use other programs but for people without internet or knowledge that there are other programs out there they should update this player. Not a fan of xbox music.
I try to install Windows 8 on my existing Windows 7 installation. I want to install windows 8 on vm ware player for testing and how it works for me. So i tried to install on vmware player but I receive error some thing like 64-bit machine is need to install.
My PC is 64 bit machine and the Windows 7 as well.
When I started a video on vlc, windows media player (classic to), etc, i watch the video normally for about 6 minutes and then everything become slow even the windows system. So i exit the video and in about 30 seconds everything turns to normal.
The laptop is brand new and i have already installed the latest Nvidia Drivers. The same thing happen on google chrome on youtube videos when they are fullscreen..when i put them in "window mode" again they return to normal speed.
I have some 80 minutes CD-medias, that I want to fill with music for my car. But Windows media Player will only accept up to 74 minutes on each CD. How do I get Media player to split my music-lists in 80 minutes instead of 74 minutes?
My "c" drive is starting to get full mostly because of a very large music collection. My friend said"simple,just put everything on "d". I think I should have gotten an external drive. Anyhow, now when I go to listen to a playlist song on media player, I get blue dots with an "i"in them and a message saying that the media player can't find the file. I tried changing the file location for the media player to"d"drive,but it would not let me (suggestion from same friend who said "mine works fine in "d" drive. Should I move everything back or get an external drive or is there a way to make this work. Asus Notebook a45x ,Windows 8,Media player version unknown.
