Adobe Flash Player user account controls

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Good day!

I am looking for help in Adobe Flash Player.

My computer is in use for two months now and I did not face any problem with Flash Player during that period.  Another application is asking to turn off user account control. After one week  flash stopped. I have uninstalled earlier versions and installed the latest version.

I am not able to use Yahoo messenger and AIM because of the flash problem. The important thing is I am not getting any error messages. My browser is Mozilla Firefox and Operating System is Vista. I am following ‘Install Missing Plug-ins’ > ‘Manual Install’ and it brings to and I selected Vista as OS and Firefox as browser and also clicked ‘Agree and Install.’

A pop up is telling ‘Opening install_flash_player.exe’ that is a binary file from’. Do you want to save the file?’ with two options. Save File and cancel. I selected Save File. When I finished the download, it says ‘Download Complete’. But when I am going back to the same place where I have downloaded it, nothing is happening. It tells me that  I am missing the ‘additional plug-ins required to show all media on this page.’

I have also turned on the user account control, but there was no change in the result. Please help me somebody to solve this problem. 

Thanks in advance.

The right place to get the right adobe flash player plug-in will be from the adobe website, and I will advise that you install it manually instead of trying to install it from the Firefox add-ons:

  • Go to, and from there search for adobe flash player.
  • A list will come up with several versions, make sure that you choose the latest version.
  • Agree to the terms of use and the user agreement and download the application.

Once the download process is through, locate on your computer the folder where the application has been saved. Run the application and install it. The application will notify you when the installation is successful and once it says that you will not have trouble using it again.
