New Version of Flash Player Causes Problems in Webkinz World *UPDATE*
For nearly two weeks now, we have been getting reports from our members of some very specific glitches affecting Webkinz World. The most common report is that clicking "Back to Categories" in the wShop sends players to a black screen, forcing them to exit out of the shop. We have been tracking all of the issues in the Glitch Report section of our forum, and it appears that they are all related to a recent update to Adobe Flash. Players who remove the new version of Adobe Flash from their systems are reporting that the glitches are immediately fixed.
Unfortunately, uninstalling the NEW version of Flash can be a bit complicated. Thankfully, Webkinz Insider member Sleeping Awake has written a fantastic guide that is easy to follow. Just click HERE to visit her thread for complete instructions. If you have been having problems with Webkinz World, it's a thread worth checking out. NOTE: Kids, please check with your parents BEFORE making any changes to the programs on your family computer.
