    Problem after upgrading to Windows 8

    After upgrading from windows 7 to windows 8 I get a box message that won't go away. It is titled "FlashPlayerPlugin _11_5_502_146exe - Application error" and the message is "The instruction at 0x71a30000 referenced memory at 0x71a30000. the memory could not be written. click on OK to terminate the program".
    I click on OK but it just won't go away. Does anyone knows what this is and how can I get rid of it. Thank you

    From the version number, 11.5.502.146 is the latest version of Flash Player for IE10 and Firefox/Chrome/etc.
    Adobe - Flash Player

    I haven't installed Flash Player on Firefox since upgrading to Windows 8, but in the past I've found that my Firefox Flash installation and the IE Flash installation were separate entities and both needed to be managed separately.

    If it still works like that, IE10's Flash player 11.5.502.146 would be separate from Firefox's Flash Player 11.5.502.146 even though the version numbers are the same.

    I'd try uninstalling Flash Player rather than Firefox.

    I don't have Win 8 on the PC in front of me at this minute, but is Flash Player listed in "Programs and Features" (can't remember exact name) within Control Panel? If so, what happens if you uninstall Flash Player?

    I uninstalled Flash Player and so far so good, I' m not getting the message again. However I got a new one:
    "Unable to cast object of type 'System.Boolean' to type 'System.String'.
    Any ideas will be eternally appreciated!!
