Flash Player Problems

How do I fix this? I have the latest version of flash installed with all the latest os x updates and yet I still can't play back youtube videos and stuff.

First, uninstall Flash. Use Adobe's official Flash uninstaller available here.

Then repair permissions and restart your computer. Then install Flash 9 and all should be good.

flash player problems II

I have Mac OS X 10.5 running on an intel based Mac Pro. I can't load Flash Player after uninstall, load and then run the disk utility and repair permissions. This is with Flash Player 9.0 r115.
I get the following messages from the Disk Utility.

The problem seems to be that your Flash Player plugin is corrupted. You'll have to delete it manually, then reinstall Flash. It's located in /Library/Internet Plug-ins and has two components: flashplayer.xpt and Flah Player.plugin. Delete both of these.

.

I did as you suggested twice! Disk utility- repair permissions showed that Flash Player was deleted, but when I again installed Flash Player 9.0 v115 I had the same problem; Flash Player is not loaded. Any additional suggestions???

thank you for the response. What I am doing makes logical sense, it just has not worked so far.
