- Does the disabling message tell why it is disabled?
- A too old version of flash, maybe? What version do you have?
- What's the "Adobe update trap"?
There are different flash players for Internet Explorer and Firefox and Chrome (where it's built in). So using another browser means that your current flash in your current browser stays unchanged. So it won't be updated. So no update trap?
Yesterday my laptop (Windows 7) was fine, today when I try to play a video it says Adobe Flash Player has been disabled and I need to reinstall updates. I'm wary as I fell into the Adobe update trap last year and it cost me $250 to reformat my computer. What should I do?
