    Try uninstalling Flash, and download/install the latest Flash player.

    Ginny,

    If you know when this started I'd try a System Restore point before it occurred and see if that fixes the problem.
    Make sure you backup your Data before you do this just in case.
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    Flash is available at several sites on the internet and has nothing to do with what's already on your PC.
    I usually get the latest versions of things like Flash, Shockwave, etc., from "File Hippo".
    They are quite a repository for the latest versions of software. Take a look.

    Experience is truly the best teacher.

    Backup! Backup! Backup! GHOST Rocks!

    I know this has been resolved; but, will add this info (in case someone search's this issue for with a similar issue). Sometime Windows registry permissions for flash can get screwed up and cause any number of issues with installing/updating/using flash. This Tech Support item from Adobe help with a issue I had, with installing flash errors.
