    Flash Player Setting Manager is turned off

    I went to Start page and typed in Flash Player and clicked on it. When the flash player setting manager box came up I noticed that it appeared to be turned off (greyed out) and it will not respond. Adobe Flash is on and Shockwave Activex is enabled.
    Any ideas how to turn on the Flash Player Setting Manager? This is not a life or death situation. Thanks

    Like forever, I've installed both Flash and Shockwave with every new OS install, right after I install Firefox.
    Why are you installing it?

    But I was having all sorts of problems with Firefox rejecting Flash because of the security holes in it.
    So, the next time I installed Firefox, I did not install Flash or Shockwave and I found out that Firefox will play
    U-Tube videos and other flash based vid's, all by itself, without installing Flash. So now, I no longer install
    Flash at all.
    And, in fact, I've uninstalled it from all (10) of my PC's.

    It was such a simple fix, I could hardly believe it!

    Good Luck Mate!
