Cannot install flash player

I have tried several times to install Adobe flash player 10 to my laptop, and although each time I get the "successfully installed" message, it does not install. I have tried in both firefox and Internet explorer, but to no avail.

    Do you have a antivirus program that is running when you are downloading or trying to install adobe flash? As if so, you might want to turn it off. If that doesnt do it, you might want to re-download the new flash with the antivirus off.

My pc is telling me i need to update adbode flash player ive done this but still its telling me to update it ive done this several times now with no success

When are you getting the update message? Does it display while you are browsing? (In that case, which browser are you using? Is the Flash Player plug-in enabled? (Similarly, do you have an adblock or javascript blocker extension in use?) For Internet Explorer, make sure that you allow the Active-X to install during the install. Depending on the version, you'll see this as a yellow bar at the top or bottom of the page. My browser sometimes doesn't display that message until I leave the Adobe Flash page.)

If it displays on restart, make sure that you allow the process in the UAC for Vista or Win7. Also make sure that you check the box for Accepting the Adobe Terms and Conditions.

In some cases, I've found that the ActiveX Flash plug-in will not update for several weeks (or two or three restarts) because I don't see that Allow Active-X while at the Adobe page. Then it gives me the update ready to install message on restart.

I hope this helps.

You may need to update Adobe Flash Player on your laptop. To do so, kindly follow below instructions:
1. Open web browser(like IE, Mozilla, etc) and go to
2. Click on "Downloads" section or tab
3. Once you are directed to the "Featured product downloads" section, click on the "Get ADOBE FLASH PLAYER" at the right side of the page.
4. You will then be directed to another page containing the latest version of Adobe Flash Player (i.e. Adobe Flash Player Version may change from time to time. If you do not want to install the Free Google Toolbar kindly uncheck the box that says "Yes, install Google Toolbar-optional "

5. Click on "Download Now". When you get the prompt or security warning window just click "Run". If you get another prompt asking "Do you want to run this software?" just click "Run" again.
6. When User Account Control dialog box appears, click "Yes".
7. Once installation is complete just click "Finish".

Close your Internet browser then open it again. Check if you can access youtube. Hope this helps.

I'm getting full disc warnings and am looking to reduce the number of applications. Do I need Adobe flash player 10 plug in and Adobe flash player 10 Active x? I also have Adobe AIR

Hi James6000

You need adobe flash player on certain can always download it again later if you see that you need it.
I have had adobe air installed forever, and have never seen it in I would say dump it too...later installation if needed.
You may want to consider and external hard drive and transfer most all of your files,pictures, games onto it and free up space on your hard drive that way also.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up
