    Default Flash Player

    I recently switched from ZA Pro to ZA Suite and am having lots of problems.
    The most serious is Adobe Flash Player will not function.
    I receive an error msg to download the latest version that is already installed.
    I cannot play vidoes of my granddaughter.
    I tried all the suggestions and none work.
    I even turned ZA off and it still wont run.
    No help at Adobe site.
    I am now sorry I made the purchase.
    I am running XP SP2.
    ZAS
    I cannot even play the ZA tutorial.
    Help.Mobile code control is off.
    cookie control Medium, Ad blocker medium

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Remove any listing of the Adobe Flash player in the ZA Program listing. If there are any listed.

    Open the Main Panel of the ZA Program Control. Then open the Advanced button and open the OSFirewall tab. In the "State" column in the right side of the "Install ActiveX" , change it to two flat bars (use system) or a blue Ask. Now do the same for the "Change which programs load at startup" - to Ask or the two flat bars for under it's State.
    Next Clean the browser cache (I assume the IE is used) with either the ZA Cache Cleaner or the browser's options in the Internet Options.

    I am now going to assume these are online flash videos not downloaded videos. In this case, open the ZA Privacy and find the site that is used in the list. If the site is not listed, then just add the site manually using the Add button. Next to the site in the list, give it all green checks next to it (from left to right). Return to the Main panel of the Privacy and then set all the sliders to Low or Medium.

    Next open the Parental Blocker and disable completely it. Often the Parental Control will inadvertantly block off wanted content.

    Open the Main panel of the Program Control and set the Program Control slider to either Low or Medium. This will train the ZA for new programs and allow their operations.

    Now try it and see if it works.

    Doesn't still work? Then do this:

    Open the Add and Remove Programs in the Control Panel and uninstall both the Adobe Flash and the ActiveX plugin for the Adobe.
    Reboot.
    Download the Flash Player again, then turn off the ZA and now install the new Flash Player.
    Now make sure the above advice is still used and now try the flash videos.

    Cheers.

    Best regards.

    Adobe
    Flash Player v.9.0.124.0 Released
    Version: 9.0.124.0
    Date Posted: 04/08/2008
    File Size: 1.5MBs

    edit:

    "Adobe has upgraded its Flash Player to fix seven vulnerabilities in the graphics and video software widely used for interactive Web pages and banner advertisements.

    Adobe classifies the patches as &quot;critical&quot; and advises people upgrade to the latest version, 9.0.124.0. All of the vulnerabilities could allow a hacker to execute code on a machine.

    Exploiting vulnerabilities in Flash software has become an increasingly popular vector for hackers to compromise machines for two reasons. Most Web browsers have the Flash Player installed, and malicious banner advertisements -- which can achieve wide distribution on Web sites pulling ads from a network -- can take advantage of those vulnerabilities...&quot;
