    I'm not sure if I have this in the right thread or not.
    Flash player is not recognized on my windows 7 64-bit, even though I have downloaded it many times. This problem occurs on all of my browsers (Safari, IE, Chrome and Firefox). I can install flash, and it will work for that time, but if I exit the browser or restart the computer, the problem reoccurs. I have tried disabling the Active X filtering in IE.

    Sounds like a Windows issue. Is this a fresh install of Windows? Has it ever worked?

    Make sure JavaScript isn't being blocked by your antivirus? What's your antivirus?

    Flash is built into Chrome so if it's not working in that browser, then it's definitely not a Flash problem. Some type of security software (anti-virus, anti-malware, firewall, etc.) is the likely cause.

    I use AVG Internet Security 2011.

    Yeah, it doesn't work in Chrome either. So, what do I do?
