    I have been listening to AOL radio for some time but now I open the page and it just sits there like a jug of urine. Strange though the link works fine on a Toshiba laptop I have. I have the latest Adobe Flash and I don't remember changing a setting that would cause this behavior. Any ideas come to mind?

    My first thought was that you need to install software in order for it to run.

    Whether it uses Adobe Flash, Java, etc., uninstall the version you currently have, and install the latest.

    Also, try using Firefox, Google Chrome, or another browser and see if it works using that.

    And do you have the latest version of Internet Explorer?

    As I posted--I have the latest Adobe Flash in fact I did uninstall it and reinstalled it.
    AOL radio plays OK with Firefox
    I don't want the latest version of IE. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    Is this on Internet Explorer? I'm assuming it's the same version, if so.

    Well now when I try to play AOL radio or even a Youtube video I am told I need the latest Adobe Flash Player-SAY WHAT?
    I don't have it and when I try to download and install it I am told it is already installed. Tried to fix this in safe mode same outcome.I can't believe this.

    No Revo does not find it. This is spooky. Now I can't even play videos at YOutube and probably other places. I even searched with the search Everything and it does not find it and it usually finds everything for sure.

    So Revo Uninstaller says that Adobe Flash Player is not installed, but when you try to install Adobe Flash Player 10.1.102.64, you are told that it is already installed.

    Have you tried restarting your computer since all of this?

    Restarted my computer? Done more than that. I saved the install.exe to the desktop thinking that I could manually
    install it but no the same d**mn message comes up.I even tried in safe mode. In my twelve years with a computer this is
    the goofiest thing I have ever come across.

    HERE is the direct download link for Adobe Flash Player 10.1.102.64.

    See if you're able to download it using that. Then install and see if you can watch Youtube videos, etc.

    No dice. The same thing is happening. Seen that a dozen times. I will post a screenshot of the box that comes up and then allows me to do nothing. Install is greyed out.

    Wow, this is tricky. :eek:
    I'm sure it's going to be something simple that ends up fixing this...just a matter of finding what it is. :D
