[Help] Adobe Flash 11.8.800.94 - Problems

This morning, v11.8.800.94, on 32-bit Windows 7, completely broke Youtube.

I have another 32-bit Windows 7 computer, which is still on v11.7.700.224, and Youtube works just fine on that computer.

I wasted about two hours this morning - installing and uninstalling and re-installing and re-booting blah blah blah blah blah - and I just couldn't get v11.8.800.94 to work with Youtube.

If anyone has any brilliant ideas, then I'm all ears, but, at least for now, v11.8.800.94 is a catastrophic disaster.

The best bet seems to be to uninstall completely, and then downgrade:

I'm still trying to track down the culprit here.

It looks like MSFT installed upwards of 20 Security Updates, on Thursday, July 11th, 2013, and any single one of them [much less two or more of them in combination] could be the culprit here.

I had been on IE9, and I'm going to see whether upgrading to IE10 will solve the problem.

But this is a frigging nightmare.

Actually, I discovered that if you're running a sufficiently recent copy of the VLC player [VideoLAN], then you can hit "Ctrl-N" to bring up the "Open Network Stream" dialog window, and if you paste your Youtube URL into it, then VLC will seek out the Youtube stream and play it back for you.

So that's a nice work-around for advanced users.

But it doesn't do much good for the, ah, more technology-challenged crowd.

Well, this is just wonderful - I get the dreaded "9C59" error message:

»answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/f···dd17d200

So apparently I am not allowed to upgrade to IE10.

Gee, that's just wonderful.

Thanks a lot, MSFT, for breaking Flash Player on this computer.

Try using the Adobe Flash Uninstaller here:

»helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/···nstaller

Restart the computer after running the uninstaller.

Reinstall Flash using the EXE download for ActiveX and Plug-in based browser here:

»www.adobe.com/products/flashplay···on3.html

Restart the computer again.

See if that fixed the problem. If not try installing Firefox or Chrome and see if Youtube works there.
