Solved: An add-on for this website failed to run ?
Good Evening,

On a couple of websites I visit I get this pop up....

" An add-on for this website failed to run "

After a few seconds the pop-up disappears. This has been happening for about a month now, and it does not happen on every website I visit. Can someone tell me what it means and how to stop it? Thanks,

Danboy

One of your browser add-ons might be faulty. Disable add-ons one after the other and open one of those websites between each add-on you disable. You'll eliminate the add-on causing trouble.

I must have got lucky cause the first one I disabled stopped the pop-up. It was Adobe Systems Inc., Shockwave Flash Object. So, can I live without this?

Do you have the 32 or 64-bit Windows 7?

Flash is an important add-on to have. You need to have a 32-bit IE9 to install Flash. If you do,

Make sure you have the latest Adobe Flash Player 10.3.183.7?

Uninstall your old version and try this one.

Well i thought everything was fine. This morning my wife tried to watch some videos on You Tube but kept getting a message saying we needed to download the latest version of Adobe Flash, which was the one I did last night. So I tried again this morning but the download stopped half way through. I went ahead and removed the Adobe flash I installed last night and clicked on the download now button that was in the message that appeared on the You Tube website. It worked that time but now when we go to You Tube the message saying we need to download the latest version of Adobe Flash keeps appearing. I also restarted my computer but that didn't help.
