I had an audio problem but I use IE 7. Anyway, I went back to an earlier
version that worked. Here's how I did it:
1. Get the latest uninstaller version for 22.214.171.124 and put it in your C
directory. Go to START, RUN, type cmd <enter> at the command prompt, type cd
C:\ then <enter>, now type, uninstall_flash_player.exe/clean. After the
uninstall program runs, RESTART your computer.

Reinstalling an earlier version of Adobe Flash Player
Safe versions security restrictions when installing Flash Player
If you previously installed a later version of Flash Player for Internet
Explorer, you may be prevented from installing an earlier version. For example,
if you installed Flash Player 126.96.36.199 and attempted to install version
188.8.131.52 the installation would fail.
This issue is due to registry key settings applied by the Flash Player
security model. The restriction is to prevent users from downgrading Flash
Player minor versions. The minor version of Flash Player is the third set of
numbers in the version name. For example, the minor version for Flash Player
184.108.40.206 would be 47. If Flash Player 220.127.116.11 was installed and you attempted
to install 18.104.22.168 (minor version 45), the installation would fail.
To resolve this, download the uninstaller for Flash Player from "How to
uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plug-in and ActiveX control" (TechNote
In the command window, type the following:
This will remove all entries in the system registry and resolve this issue.
Note: The uninstall_flash_player.exe file must be saved to the same directory
that the command window is in, for example C:\.

2. Get the correct version for your operating system and browser.
Go here to find the Archived Downloads:
You will find the past versions with specific install files for your
particular operating system and browser along with the uninstall fle needed in
the download for 0.0 version. Read carefully the descriptions in the ReadMe
after you download and choose precisely which install file you need to run.
May sound complicated, but it is easy.
All the best to you.
