Adobe puts out new versions of Flash Player regularly. As a result, each time you upgrade flash player, you run the risk of creating incompatibilities within your system. With Windows and Adobe constantly trying to create newer and perhaps better versions, the conflict is inevitable.
Are Flash Player Upgrades Necessary?
I have to be honest with you. If I can, I wait until absolutely necessary before I agree to upgrade any software that I am successfully running on my computer. Sometimes that means that I a running a version that is an edition or two behind the “leading edge.” It doesn’t bother me at all because at least I know that my computer is running properly.
If you choose to upgrade your system you may find that over time your processing time slows, you start seeing Flash Player errors and System errors. If this is the case, you have two options.
Reloading Flash Player
You can go directly to the Adobe website and download the newest version of Flash Player again. Sometimes a bug arrives with a particular download and the next day the bug is corrected and the new copy is clean. To do this properly you must:
- First, remove the old version of Flash Player
- Go to your control panel.
- Find the link that allows you to Add/Remove/Change programs.
- Click that option and let it create a list of all the programs upon your computer.
- Remove the current version of Flash Player.
- When that is complete you can reload the most recent upgrade of Flash Player.
Use a Good Registry Cleaner before Your Flash Player Upgrade
Sometimes the problem doesn’t lay with the version of Flash Player you possess. Rather, it is within your Windows Registry. Small errors develop in any registry system over time, and the combination of new versions of programs with system errors is deadly.
Use a registry cleaner before you update Flash Player. It’s the quickest way to eliminate such errors and bugs. It will not only fix registry errors; it will optimize the speed of your machine and allow all programs, even an upgrade Flash Player download, to work ideally.
