My OS worked fine until the latest version of Adobe Flash Player 11 was issued. How do I fix?

System restore back to before that update (yesterday?). And never download it again.

Kees has given a good suggestion for restoring back and it should get you going again... Should you decide to give Flash a try again, try it this way:

First, uninstall all previous versions of Flash by using the Flash Uninstaller at the link below..

After that's done, then download the appropriate manual Flash player installer from the link below. If running two browsers, you may need both installers. If you're using Chrome, download and install the latest version of Chrome which contains Flash.

Flash Player for IE 32& 64 bit:

Flash Player for Non-IE browser (Opera, Firefox etc):

Hope this helps.
