Before you do anything regarding Flash, please do the following. Click Help | Check For Updates. The Firefox version you're running at the moment exposes your machine to attack.

After you update, go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ and install it from there.

Unfortunately, I can't test the BBC player for you because I'm not located in the UK. The BBC blocks it for all other countries.

Sure Zircal, I understand that problem having lived abroad. I have excepted bbc radio in the tools, options. unfortunately i still get the same window telling me flash is not detected although i have saved these files twice now. does flash have something to do with adobe?

more options

Yes, Adobe is the owner now having bought Macromedia.

Can you do the following please.


These are both direct download links so you won't see a page, just the files to download. They look like the ones you see in the screenshot.

Close Firefox first and then run the uninstall_flash_player.exe file. Then reboot so that the operating system deletes the data from the Windows Registry.

When the system reboots to the desktop, double click the install_flash_player.exe file to install it. Do not open Firefox first.

Then try the BeeB site again.

Hi Zircal, Many thanks for your patience in helping me with this problem. I can now listen to a bit of radio now thanks to you. I was finding everything difficult as the OS was new as was the laptop. Many thanks once again.
