Adobe Flash Virus ? Answered

Hello, I have an imac. This appeared a few days ago and sits over any youtube or embedded video clip. I have run a full system scan using Sophos but it gave the all clear. I cleared all my cookies. I've clicked Deny but  it stayed there. I've looked up imrworldwide.com but it all seems to relate to PC'c. Has anyone with a Mac had this problem and, if so,  what did you do. Thank you

Instructable flash support

Well today as I stared at pocket cotton candy machine, I thought I should add a flash animation explaining the basics of how cotton candy machine work. Now that poses a problem. I could export my animation to a video, but when you do that in Adobe Flash it deteriorates quality and basically turns it into a slide show instead of an animation. So this post is to suggest the possible add-on of flash support for instrucatbles so that those of us who use flash don't have to ruin our animations. Plus flash loads faster.

Flash player being blocked? Answered

OK, so I've been working on computers for years and have never seen anything like this... neither have any of my colleagues.  I am trying to help someone out who has some issues with flash player.  Basically flash player is installed on the computer, but whenever I visit youtube or another site with flash, it just shows a black square.  I have run every virus scan I can think of (MBAM, Spybot, SAS, McAfee Stinger, HiJack This!, Norton Power Eraser, Kaspersky TDSS killer, Combofix, Avira) and all of them come up with nothing.  I have tried reinstalling flash at least 5 times, removing every program that has even a remote possibly of conflicting (using Revo to be sure they are completely removed).  I have disabled every startup program on the computer, updated every driver, rolled back, (then updated) every driver, and verified that all hardware is functional.  I have also disabled their AV and firewall. Nothing works; except for when the computer is in safe mode.  Then everything works fine. Can anyone think of anything I am missing? Thanks! Edit: I did try clearing cache and cookies as well.  I also used multiple browsers (including Chrome; which has flash built right into it).  I used Firefox portable as well... which should be running separately from any settings in the system. Also; I did Google the heck out of this one before posting, so no lmgtfy links please... ;)

Help with an Adobe Flash Template

I'm building a website and I'm using a flash template.  I'm using Adobe Flash CS5 to edit the flash content, in this case a menu.  There's some text that I'm unsure of how to change.  Leave a comment if you think you can help me, and I'll PM you a link so you can download that flash file I'm trying to edit, along with the specifics.  I'd love if someone to do this for me, or preferably tell/teach me how to do it.

If anything i figure id make a movie clip of said person walking and then use the key press code snippet and delete the up/down keys and then have it play the movie clip when its pressed and stop when its released?

How to stream live video from a webcam using raspberry pi?

Hi, I have had my raspberry pi for about 3 months now and I purchased it with the intention of mounting it on an RC car so I can have live video. The problem is that the pi doen't support flash so I cannot simpley run my webcam through a program like skype. I have bought a wifi usb dongle with the rtl8188cus chip and want to be able to drive it within range of my modem. I also a have a proper tx and rx for an rc plane because I prefer the joystick control. So the olny thing the raspberry pi needs to do is stream live video at a high fps.

I'm making an informational website for my Web design class using Adobe Dreamweaver. He wants it to be informational, so I figured it would be easy just to move my instructable to the site and format it a bit rather than start from scratch. I tried copying the source code, no go since the pictures aren't stored "locally" Right now I'm in the process of copying and pasting the text, but there has to be an easier way (this is a 30 step instructable) Do you know how to port an instructable to another site, while keeping all of the images and text local to a flash drive?

Laptop Password Help

OK, so I'm typing on this laptop...It was assigned to Kitewife by an ex employer who seems to have forgotten they assigned it to her several years ago.If they ever ask for it back, we will happily hand it back, but they treated Kitewife very badly for quite some time before she left, so we have forgotten that we have it.Anyhoo, it works OK, little slow, but fine for the boys to use. Except that it's software hasn't been updated for at least three years. There are whole chunks of the internet that are invisible to it. The Flash, Java, Adobe, even the anti-virus are stupidly out of date.Unfortunately, the laptop has an admin password.Now, I could ask Kitewife's ex employer what the password is, but they might remember that she has it.So...Any ideas?I've had a look at the various password "hack" ibles, but they haven't been any help.

Raspberry Pi 24/7 Panda Cam

So I'm trying to make a birthday present for my girlfriend and something for her new apartment. She loves pandas and loves to watch the 24 hour live panda cams at the Smithsonian National Zoo. So I came across the idea of using a raspberry pi and a digital photo frame monitor to give a live feed of the pandas 24/7. Only problem is, I didn't realize Rasbian doesn't support Adobe Flash and there's no way to view the feed. Does anyone know if ARM Linux would support the feed. Or have another completely different take on a way to tackle this project? I want it pretty seamless so all see has to do it plug in the power supply and maybe an Ethernet cable and the rest be taken care of with a python script or something similar. I program for a living as well have a degree in Electrical Engineering so even if its complicated let me have it. I appreciate your help. Thanks!

How did you find Instructables.com ?

- How I found Instructables ? and what was the first Instrutable I visited ? Wall-E Robot was the first Instructable I visited and I found it on a Persian technology website . There was a link to here , and that was the first time I visit Instructables.com ! When I visit that Instructable I enjoy from it very much , but that was so hard for me to make a Wall-e Robot ! So I went to Instructables home page and open other Instructables projects . "Build the Starship Enterprise from useless office supplies" was the second Instructable I visited . I make it very soon but I don't know what is the avail of this Instructable ! Then I understand all of the Instructables are not useful for me ! - Jan 10, 2009 I back to Instructables.com after my school and then I signed-up in Instructables . That was my start ! - Without any doubt , Instructables.com is my favorite website . - Why ? When I found this website I couldn't take high-resolution pictures , I couldn't speak English well and don't know many things about cookery , LED , DIV and etc . Instructables increase my knowledge about many sciences and it's continue yet ... . When I visit a new Instructable , it teach me many things and when I do the steps , it make me more expert . Instructables is a big school for me . Now I can take high-resolution pictures and my English increase much (but is not complete yet !) The photos of my first Instructable made with Macromedia Flash (now is Adobe !) . I don't know how are the contests . so I couldn't add this to a contest . I was in Instructable many times but after two months I left it (because I was darned on Instructables) ; and after a few month I back to Instructables again ! Also I referd I share my adventures in Instructables.com , so please let me know how do you found Instructables.com and what is you comment about this website !

iPad Problems - 14 Problems with Apple's iPad

Apple just revealed the new Apple iPad Tablet that will probably make it one of the first failures by Apple's latest line of products. Apple revealed this new Tablet PC as a challenger to netbooks. However, it's already been labeled a "less powerful, but more expensive netbook." Here are 14 iPad problems that made this Apple iPad an iDisappointment. 1. No Multitasking The Apple iPad is just like the iPhone, in that there is no multitasking. You can't work on a document and talk on AIM or Gtalk. In other words, the iPad just a giant iPod Touch (the iPod Touch being better) and cannot match netbooks. 2. It Has an Awkward Design The design is a bit awkward because you have to hold it in one hand and balance it while your other hand uses the functionality or more likely you will need to put it on your knees to use it properly. It's like holding a monitor, I'm sure nothing will happen to it. Some people complain about the Bezel being too large, but perhaps this was necessary so that you don't constantly give commands while moving around. 3. No Adobe Flash Were you considering watching Hulu on this? How about youtube (well we'll have to wait for an app for that)? Thinking of playing flash games while waiting on the bus? Oh well. 4. No USB, Need Adapters Again with the iPod design, you need to plug in the special Apple adapter. If you lose it, you'll have to buy another. If you want to plug in multiple devices you need USB to iPad adapters! Since it's not even using Mac OS, most USB devices would probably not work anyway. 5. AT&T; Once Again Are you thinking of purchasing the 3G version? You'll need to get it with AT&T; and think of how overloaded their service will be now. There is no Verizon, T-Mobile, or Sprint service available for this product, some of which has better coverage. You can't use T-Mobile's 3G at all because of their MicroSIM made specifically for AT&T.; 6. Memory Business Model Apple will charge you extra for higher memory. It's a business model they use for all their products to increase profits. That's why they don't want other storage devices being inserted to improve memory. You're also stuck with a limit of 64GB, so don't think about putting in all your music, movies, or games. 7. Touch Keyboard Many people were complaining about the touchscreen keyboard. Which would be fine if it worked perfectly and you didn't have to sit it exactly on your lap and make sure it's flat. You can however, attach an Apple keyboard, just another way for Apple to make money. 8. App Store Again Just like the iPod Touch you have to download everything from an App store. Meaning if you don't like Safari, you're stuck with it. Some apps may be banned once again. 9. No Cameras Yeah no web cams on the front, and no cameras for photos or videos from the back either. 10. No Removable Battery You can't just take an extra battery with you on a long trip because the battery works the same way as an iPod (though my bet is, it doesn't last as long). 11. No HDMI/DVI Output You can't plug this thing into your TV to display your HD movies. You'd need AppleTV for that. 12. No Widescreen 16:9 ain't happening, you're stuck with a 4:3 screen. 13. No GPS There's no GPS, so --unlike the T-Mobile MyTouch or the Verizon Droid which both run on Android, can multitask and have GPS so that you can use the Beta Google Maps Navigation system for turn-by-turn directions-- you're stuck with locating yourself via WiFi hotspots. 14. It's Large, Slow, and Clunky Not only will you have to buy accessories to protect your device, it's very large making it easy to drop and probably won't live a healthy life in a backpack filled with notebooks and other possibly sharp objects. There may be a number of accessories sold by Apple to cover some of these problems. The iPad max speed is 1GHz (A4 processor) and will probably be just as slow surfing the web as most other smartphones and it won't match up to netbooks. There is no Mac OS X or anything either, it's definitely the iPhone OS except without the Phone capability and of course I'm sure they will ban Google Voice and Skype. The iPad is about the size of a Kindle, so it is nice for reading e-books I suppose, but then I'm not sure why I wouldn't just buy a Kindle. As with all companies that initially have much success, they get a little overconfident and launch a product just to create more hype and increase their stock prices.   More related iPad Problem resources: ipad wiki - What you need to know about iPad The iPad is a tablet computer developed by Apple Inc. Announced on January 27, 2010, it is similar in functionality to the iPhone and iPod touch, running the same operating system (iPhone OS) and almost all of the same applications...
