You need to UNinstall the Flash Player plugin you have and reinstall a fresh copy.
From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Empty Cache. When you are done with that...
From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Reset Safari. Select the top 5 buttons and click Reset.
Might be a 3rd party plugin causing the problem. Go to ~/Library/Internet Plugins. Move any 3rd party plugins to the Trash.
Also, if you are running Safari in 64 bit mode, try running in 32-bit mode instead. Right or control click the Safari icon in the Applications folder, then click: Get Info In the Get Info window click the black disclosure triangle next to General so it faces down. Select 32 bit mode. Also, (in that same window) make sure Safari is NOT running in Rosetta.
If nothing above helps, download and install the 10.6.2 combo update available here.
Mac OS X v10.6.2 Combo Update
And repair disk permissions...
Quit any open applications/programs. Launch Disk Utility. (Applications/Utilities) Select MacintoshHD in the panel on the left, select the FirstAid tab. Click: Repair Disk Permissions. When it's finished from the Menu Bar, Quit Disk Utility and restart your Mac. If you see a long list of "messages" in the permissions window, it's ok. That can be ignored. As long as you see, "Permissions Repair Complete" when it's finished... you're done. Quit Disk Utility and *restart your Mac.*
Many thanks for your help, I've tried your steps and the problem seems to be fixed
Just out of interest, what caused this to happen? The only thing I can think of is that I recently have been starting to use the 'CleanMyMac' application....do you think this may have caused the problem? If so, what settings should/shouldn't I use when using this program to stop similar problems occuring?
