I installed the latest update for Adobe Flash Player some days ago, and I have been experiencing difficulties on several sites that run Flash. Can't control the video playback in Youtube, can't scroll the pages properly on Safari Books, can't play embedded youtube videos.

Is it just me or is this a bug? How to fix this?

Go to and tell us what it says. I'm using and didn't have any problems with it since I updated. As far as I know, there wasn't any official release in maybe a month or more.

Could it be a virus trying to pass itself as flash?

@ShiVik Sorry, I don't have any real idea what could the problem be. – AndrejaKo Aug 29 '10 at 9:33
It seems like flash is giving problems on Chrome. Maybe I can try reinstalling on Chrome. Thanks. – vikkun Aug 29 '10 at 9:35
I found the solution in another question of mine… – vikkun Sep 24 '10 at 10:36

In case the update has simply gone bad, you could uninstall and reinstall Flash.

Be sure to scan for viruses after the uninstallation, and to download the latest Flash, straight from Adobe.
