This is not a cure. Install this add-on and use it for now.

If you have problems with current Shockwave Flash plugin versions then check this:

  • see if there are updates for your graphics drive drivers

Please re-read the instructions on http://kb.mozillazine.org/Flash#Flash_Player_11.3_Protected_Mode_-_Windows

It says (in part) To disable Protected Mode, use a text editor to add the line ProtectedMode=0 to the Flash "mms.cfg" file, located in one of these locations:
(Windows 32bit) C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash
(Windows 64bit) C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash

I think it's time to talk to a computer tech. Your hard drives may be corrupt. Try to find one that works out of a major store.


I don't know if these can help you,

1) Perform a System File Check to fix corrupted system files http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1538-sfc-scannow-command-system-file-checker.html

2) Open your file browser. Right click on your C: drive from My Computer. Select Properties > Tools. Run the disk checker program. This will take many hours depending on the size of the drive. When it is done, check the other drives also. Again, taking many hours.

Boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) as a test.


Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer. Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. All these programs have free versions.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.
