Bummer! Twice in a row I was kicked off the Internet by a Flash Player problem with Hubpages. Same thing happened a couple of days ago. Is this related to ads wanting to play or is it something else?
Not sure what is going on watergeek but the ads on the right side of all my hubs are only showing in code and not loading. There is also an ad under "Related Hubs". It could fool people into clicking on it thinking it is a hub.
maybe the google chrome needs updates. I had this problem too
Just yesterday I updated an item which I update regularly so it nothing was different. Until I checked my Programs after the download and found programs which I did not know of which were malware. After un-deleting them from Programs, I did a Boot Scan with my Antivirus to clear the rest.
It sounds like you're referring to the On the Reel video ads on the sidebar. Have you updated your Flash Player? When you say kicked off the internet, what happened on the page? Did you get a script message?
No script message, nothing. Just boom, my browser shut off (Safari). Then my computer's notification came on, and I do think it was related to Flash Player. However, I have the latest Flash Player that my computer will handle. It's not Intel-based, so I can't upload the very latest. Meanwhile, it ticks me off that ads using Flash Player can go to that extreme. I didn't click on any of them. I was just reading someone's hub.
Needless to say, this thread caused me to check my hubs.
All appears well when using FF and IE. I don't know about Chrome, for some reason it always refuses to get along with my computer and I gave up trying to use it.
Adobe did a recent Flash update, could be relevant or not.
It may be because you have not updated your Flash player. This happened to me as I have not yet installed the updates for Adobe Flash player but I was not kicked out. I just can't view videos.

What is this message? "This site uses a plug-in (adobe flash player) that will soon be unsupported."I am seeing two messages on most pages of HubPages.com since yesterday. What does these messages mean? Is it something related to hubpages? Or it refers to some problem on my computer?1)...

Are you ever able to stay off the Internet for even just one whole day?This question came to me after another hubber answered another question about being on-line each and every day and how hard it is to not get on-line, even for one day. Do you find it very difficult to not be on-line for...

I've been having this issue for a couple of days. Seems to be happening a lot today when I visit a hub or a hubber's profile page that the flash player 15.0r keeps crashing. It was suggested the other day that I perhaps remove that version and download an older version.What does HP recommend?

US President Barack Obama would be granted powers to seize control of and even shut down the internet under a new bill that describes the global internet as a US "national asset".Local lobby groups and academics have rounded on the plan, saying that, rather than combat terrorists, it...
