    Flash Support


    Hi,

    Hoping someone might be able to shed some light on a recurring problem I'm having. When i fitsy got my new laptop i had couldn't download any programs (itunes, Chrome etc) and no sites with flash content would work (my daughter likes games such as Animal Jam, Moshi Monsters etc). A couple of weeks ago this problem went away for some reason, itunes downloaded and my daughter happily played on her games, youtube and video sites worked, but over the weekend the problem came back. itunes won't sync to my phone and i can't download flash player.
    Has anybody else had/solved any similar problems at all?

    There is a flash test too.

    When you see the animation, it is installed.
