I have been trying to update from Adobe reader 9 to Adobe Flash

I have been trying to update from Adobe reader 9 to Adobe Flash player 10 but after it says installation complete, it doesn't install, and version 9 remains?
Mark.

Omer Mushahwar :

Hi Mark, I am one of the experts here on Just Answer.com

Omer Mushahwar :

Adobe Reader 9 and Adobe Flash player 10 are two separate programs,
Adobe Reader lets you read and view pdf files and
Adobe Flash player 10 is a program that lets you view flash files

Omer Mushahwar :

are you trying to update one of the programs?

JACUSTOMER-yx4eugp8- :

Essentially all I was trying to do was install Adobe 10 because my sound on youtube has gone and I figured Adobe 10 would bring it back??

Omer Mushahwar :

Now your sound is only muted on Youtube and nothing else?

JACUSTOMER-yx4eugp8- :

Yes, but I cannot activate the mute button to bring the sound back?

Omer Mushahwar :

Is it like that for all the videos or just a specific one

JACUSTOMER-yx4eugp8- :

All of them.

Omer Mushahwar :

Can you tell me what internet browser you are using?

Omer Mushahwar :

Internet Explorer, google chrome, firefox ....

JACUSTOMER-yx4eugp8- :

Explorer

Omer Mushahwar :

Since reinstalling flash player have you closed Explorer and reopened it to see if the controls are working

JACUSTOMER-yx4eugp8- :

After Adobe said that 10 had been installed Ok, I shut everything down and restarted in the hope that Adobe would come up with the restart. But it didn't.

Omer Mushahwar :

Ok one second

JACUSTOMER-yx4eugp8- :
