    windows 8 built in flash player not working


    hello
    windows 8 built in flash player not working, please don't suggest using firefox, i need it to use yahoo messenger. and it depends to IE. as you now it not possible to reinstall it. reseting IE didn't help.
    i also tried adobe guide but it didn't help, there were no addon in ie to enable. but when i try to install flash it says built in is installed and updated

    i must note that IE shows no flash content.

    It won't.
    Just the version message means you have Flash installed.

    it didn't helped.
    some one suggested to do IE performance diagnostic it didn't helped too, but is there any other similar jobs to do? or i have to reinstall IE?

    Try running sfc /scannow.

    Then run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Reboot & run sfc /scannow again.

    If it doesn't help, reinstall IE.
