When I try to download anything I get a message that says my security settings are not allowing this download. I turned of security and still got the same message.


The computer is on alert, a messenger to the user. Several computer features perform alert functionalities. First, the firewalls are feature functions on the computer that prevents any program least recognized as belonging to the system from integration. Alternately said, a firewall on the computer disallows any program installations either achievable with CDs, Disk or DVD media or simple downloadable from networked structure of devices. In the situation that external programs were being introduced by the user, a message alert is displayed either as warning of possible infiltration or requesting permission for progress. Second, the computer security settings usually prevent any unauthorized integration of programs into users default settings. In which instance, the user has to disable the computers security else downloads of program installations would be nonexistent. Third, internet worked computer device usually has security setting for several purposes. First, internet security setting on the computer allows the default user of the computer to gain access to networked device often common with subscriber connections. Once an authorized user is recognized, permission is acquired to navigate the network. Alternately, internet computer securities disallow intrusion programs. For example while on the internet, it is possible to request programs either irrelevant in functionality, harmful ware clogging computers features as default. Finally, internet security make impossible hidden intrusions on the from several device operating under auspices least observable above program encryptions. However, a computer alert performs as reminder to the user that an introduction of programs from an elsewhere location is about to take place. Usually, a popup logo would require authorization approval to continue with accessibility or authorization disapproval for alternate response to be achieved. In the situation of yahoo messenger installation alert would require disabling the computer firewalls if any installation the program may be required. A computer firewall set as enabled would hardly allow installations or downloads unless the feature was set to disabled by the computer user for resuming of program transferability.

Could someone please tell me why I can't install adobe flash player 9 on an Acer Aspire T180-0A7Z? I keep being told that installation is complete, however when I go to play a video, it asks me to...


  1. Restart: In some situations, Windows or Internet Explorer needs to be restarted in order to complete an update. Restart your machine, and test Flash Player before moving to Step 2.
  2. Reinstall: Refer to the steps in Try this first: How to fix almost all Flash Player issues.
  3. Repair the browser: The next most common cause of problems is an error with the browser. Often a browser upgrade or changes to the browser may require a browser repair and reinstallation of Flash Player.

    To repair Internet Explorer: Choose Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. Choose the browser from the list of programs, click Change/Remove, and choose the Repair option. Restart after repairing the browser, and follow steps in Try this first: How to fix almost all Flash Player issues to reinstall Flash Player again. If Internet Explorer does not appear on the Add/Remove list, Repair is not an option, and you should move on to the next step.

    Other browsers: Follow the steps above to see if your browser has a Repair option; if it does, repair it. If your browser (such as Netscape) does not have a Repair option, you must reinstall the browser in order to repair it. Try Steps 4 through 7 first before moving on to Step 8 to reinstall the browser.
  4. Security level: Your Internet Explorer security level may be set to High or a custom level which does not allow viewing of ActiveX controls.

    To view your Security level, from within Internet Explorer, choose Tools > Internet Options, and in the Security tab, choose Internet.

    Though your browser security settings should be chosen by you or your system administrator, the Medium: Default Level will allow you to view Flash content. For any Custom Level, ensure that both "Download Signed ActiveX controls" and "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" are not disabled. (Enable or Prompt will work).
  5. Permissions: Your permissions may not allow you to install ActiveX controls or plug-ins. If this is a possibility, refer to Permissions can affect installing Adobe Flash Player for more information.
  6. Update your video drivers: This step is especially important if you experience a freeze or crash when installing or using Flash Player. Right-click on your Desktop and choose Properties > Settings > Advanced > Adapter to view the manufacturer's name. Refer to the manufacturer's website to download drivers or for assistance with installing the latest drivers.
  7. Reinstall the browser: Download and install the latest version from your browser manufacturer's website. Download and install the latest Flash Player from the Flash Player Download Center.
