    Hi all man this has been a hard Laptop to deal with.

    I have Vista Home premium and I am having a problem with streaming Youtube. The Error says, "I need the latest Flash player which is already installed on my laptop.


    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    Thanks.

    Well that is weird it says it is already installed and yet I do not see it installed. Hummm and I cannot seem to see yourtube. Here is what it says now, Adobe Flash Player did not install successfully

    You can troubleshoot your installation with the following resources:

    You should probably uninstall everything and reinstall Flash.

    I would use "Programs and Features". That's what I always use.

    Uninstall Flash from Control Panel > "Programs and Features".

    Or, press the Windows key + R to open a Run box.

    Type appwiz.cpl

    Click OK.

    Locate the Adobe Flash Player 11 ActiveX.

    Click and uninstall it.

    Any new developments?

    I may not have given you a clear explanation of the differences between a 32-bit and a 64-bit operating system.

    If you have Vista 32-bit, simply install the Adobe Flash Player 32-bit.

    If you have Vista 64-bit, you'll have two versions of Internet Explorer. IE 64-bit and IE 32-bit. In that case, you'll need both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Adobe Flash Player on your computer.
