I have a really annoying problem: essentially, Adobe Flash is not working anymore. For instance, I cant watch any clip on youtube and I always get a black screen saying:

Movie not loaded ...

I have the newest Flash version (, and the problem is the same with IE, Firefox or Chrome. I am using WIN XP and I turned of Antivirus software as well as Firewall, still I cant watch any flash stuff.

Anyone an idea what could have happened in the last week? Never had a problem before that!

Try reinstalling Flash? – Vervious Apr 9 '10 at 16:32

Uninstall all Flash related items in your Add/Remove Programs list, then reinstall the latest version of Flash.

Assueming you´re working at Windows, my first guess would be a Virus or some other malware... I would do the following:

  1. Turn Antivirus back on and scan system
  2. scyn system with Spybot
  3. look if some unnormal processes are running
