SOURCE: Adobe sites are slow to

With Adobe I have run into this myself you have to download flash manually and not from a site. Not always the case however if you go to adobe.com you can download the flash there and not from a site that is requesting it. Also some browsers like IE8 and the BETA 9 are not offering an easy application download nor do they have spell check features folks are fleeing in droves for the FireFox browser or the Google Chrome which has the latest flash already installed when you download them.
Of course everyone is different I suggest changing browsers that support adobe flash without a difficulty to obtain the software. IE8 is a personal preference I just find IE8 as a future of billboard ad becoming even greater. Check out 9 if you have Win 7 and you will see what I mean. Make sure that you also have Silverlite downloaded as well. This is the new transformation to flash rather kinda nice actually.
My advice is to download manually the flash utility be sure once flash is downloaded close your browser it will not download and finish if you do not close the browser. I also suggest Google Chrome as an alternative browser. Of course this is at your discretion I use it and without a hitch. I hope this assisted you in a better direction when it come to flash. I believe it is a browser issue as well as updates not being installed on your system just a guess of course. Thanks for using FixYa for all your questions. John

SOURCE: unable to install flash player in internet

Make sure you don't have any prior versions of Adobe Flash Player in your system. Look in "programs and features" and make sure. If you have prior versions, uninstall them. You have to be out of all apps when downloading, IE: Internet Explorer, MSN Messenger, some Yahoo mails, anything that accesses internet. You will be asked to allow Active X and you should get warned about things you're in that won't allow download which, you can get out of by minimizing download, getting out, then returning to download. If it's easier, save the download to file, get out of everything, then open file and download. Adobe has a pretty good help section. You will also want to have Java, if you have Java, make sure it's up to date. You can check in "control panel", click on the Java icon then the update tab. If you don't have Java, you can get it here:
http://www.java.com/en/
Adobe's is here, just in case:
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Flash player not installing


1) Check the settings of your anti-virus program. A lot of times an anti-virus program will not let a program download.

2) The main thing with Adobe Flash Player, is that it will NOT install a new version of Flash Player; with an old version present.

And it will NOT automatically delete the old version.

Use the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller tool.
Then go back to Adobe Flash Player Support, and download AND install the newest version of Adobe Flash Player.

Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller tool,

http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

Go down to the bottom of the page, where it states in bold print -
Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller
Click on the blue - Tech note - in the paragraph.

Takes you to here,

http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html

Scroll down to -
1. Download the uninstaller for Flash Player
Click on the blue - uninstaller - underneath the above heading. [Uninstaller (674KB) ]

A small window will come up. Click on Save File.
A small download window will come up.
Allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.
If you are not asked to restart your computer, do so.

When Windows loads back up again, go back to Adobe Flash Player Support, download and install the newest version of Adobe Flash Player.

1) Make sure your Adobe Flash Player is up to date,

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

[ Advise click on the small square to the left of -
Yes, install McAfee Security Scan Plus - optional
,and remove the green checkmark. THEN click on Download now ]

Be advised though, sometimes the new Adobe Flash Player download, will not automatically remove the old Adobe Flash Player version that is installed; and the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller Tool is needed.

http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

Go to the bottom of this page. Under the bold subheading -
Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller - click on the blue - Tech Note.

On the following page go down to the subheading -
1. Download the uninstaller for Flash Player -
,and click on - uninstaller - in blue. (674 KB)

In the small window that comes up click on Save File.

Close all internet windows.

In the small download window that comes up next, allow the file to fully download, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.

When you are finished with the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller, close all windows, restart the computer.
Now go back to Adobe Flash Player Support, and download the new Adobe Flash Player.


2) Make sure your Java is up to date,

http://www.java.com/en/

3) Sometimes I have found, that you have to click on Pause for the video, and allow it to download for a bit, then click on Play.

Hello brettashepe, once the "Download of the {Adobe Flash Player} begin!"
"Observe a 'message'!
The message may 'appear as a "Pop-up" in a small area of the 'upper screen'.
"Install [Active X] Software!"
There may also be a !Warning: To the "Downloading of "Active X" on the computer.
This is a "Trusted-Site; so its safe to "Download the Software."
Try [Downloading Adobe Flash Player] from this "Website."
Attention!: If you are 'still' having trouble "Downloading the [AFP]?
Try (1) from a {Previous Version} ie. Adobe Flash Player

!Important: "Take a 'moment to rate the help', so I can get 'credit' for the work.

My widows is VISTA. I am trying to download ADOBE FLASH PLAYER 10. But it is not working now. So, tell me how i can download it. Shihab


Hi.
Here is what I found on the network regarding your problem.
It might help you.

Here's the scenario: you download the latest and greatest version of the Adobe Flash Player. After it finishes installing, you go to a site featuring Flash content and are greeted with a message notifying you that you need to install Flash Player, but didn't you just do that? To properly update your Flash Player, you need to run the installation as Administrator. Follow these steps to properly install Adobe Flash Player:
For Vista (32 bit):
1. Open Computer.
2. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\.
3. Scroll down and open the Macromed directory.
4. Open the Flash directory.
5. Right-click FlashUtil9b.
6. Select Run as Administrator.
7. When the UAC prompt appears, select Continue.
8. Follow the Flash Player installation wizard.
For Vista (64 bit):
1. Open Computer.
2. Navigate to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\.
3. Scroll down and open the Macromed directory.
4. Open the Flash directory.
5. Right-click FlashUtil9b.
6. Select Run as Administrator.
7. When the UAC prompt appears, select Continue.
8. Follow the Flash Player installation wizard.
Once the wizard completes, Flash Player has been properly installed and will now function properly.
