    I saw this unanswered post from Jessica 116:

    Adobe fash player 11 problems
    I have downloaded the latest adobe flash player 11 I have no problem watching you tube videos but when i go to different sites i get blank white boxes where it should be showing videos or advertisments and i can't play games on facebook either i am running windows 7 with ie9 please help!!!!

    This is exactly what's been happening to me. It affects IE8 and Firefox (I tried the download for 11.2.300.262 and that didn't solve the problem), as well as OE8 and even Word. My video card and monitor are running fine. Lots of RAM. If I keep one or two windows open in IE8, I don't have the problem, but if I open Firefox and OE at the same time, it happens.

    This only started happening within the last week or so. prior to that time, I had no problems with any of the above, and my computer hasn't changed at all (no new hardware, etc.).

    On the Adobe forums people are reported crashes with Flash 11. 257, so somehow all this is related.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks!

    I tried to install Flash 10, but Adobe denied me, saying I needed the latest version. And the 262 version which is supposed to fix the Firefox problem doesn't work. Plus, main problem is with IE8 and the problem affecting OE8 and even Word.

    What to do?

    Uninstall Flash using Add and Remove programs (or a program such as Revo Uninstaller), reboot, and install an older known working version of Flash.

    There's a special uninstaller provided by Adobe to remove all versions of Flash from your computer:
