    so my wife sees one of the adobe flash player pop ups and updates, now she cant watch any videos, on yahoo, msn or youtube. dont know what she updated but i dont think a adobe update would cause this.

    Do you have a Time Machine Backup?
    If so restore your computer to before she did the update.

    yeah but its here with me and she is back in florida
    i told her not to update anything. might be a good lesson for her, she will have to wait until she gets home for me to figure it out, or reload the whole system. to bad there isnt a app that would prevent some one from updating anything.

    thought about uninstalling adobe flash player and reinstalling it. figure its worth a try, not working now anyways

    You could make her an account that doesn't have administration privileges.

    The fixed version of the Flash plugin has been posted. Just update the one you have installed and it'll be resolved.

    Again, Adobe has fixed version 13 for older computers. 13.0.0.201 fixes the problems, and you should update from 12 because 12 has significant security issues.
