    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. :mad:

    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.
