Question about Dell Vostro 1500 Notebook

1 Answer

My Dell Vistro 1500, running XP, locks up when I try to download Adobe Flash from Adobe's download site. I get no pop-up security message, just a "blip" sound as it locks-up.

    Thanks for the suggestion. However, I did remove the old version of Flash Player. I have tried many different things, including Microsoft's FixIt, since I thought the problem might be with Internet Explorer. When I select "download" to get the Adobe Flash Player file, I hear the "bleep" sound that accompanies the Internet Explorer tool bar that appears asking if I really want to allow the site to download. Problem is that the sound is there, but not the toolbar. As soon as the "bleep" sound happens, Internet Explorer locks-up. I tried making the Adobe site a trusted site, tried disabling my security software and even the firewall. Nothing has worked. I've run out of ideas.
    Thanks for your help!

The 'funny' thing about Adobe Flash Player is that it does Not automatically uninstall the older version.
You have to use the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller Tool.

http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html

On this page go to line 1. Click on the blue -
uninstall_flash_player.exe

Download the file, then go to where you downloaded it, and double-click on the file name.
(Double-clicking opens the file)
Click on Run.
Yes, Microsoft it's a good file.

After you have run Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller, restart your computer.
Now go back to Adobe Support, and download the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.

Have additional questions, or need clarification to what I have stated, please post in a Comment.
Regards,

Check for updates or just update adoe flash player
Adobe Flash Player allows users to view videos made with Flash, a common online video format that can be viewed by both Mac and PC users.

Because technology is consistently emerging, Adobe frequently updates its Flash player. Downloading an update is free, and may be required in order to watch videos online.

You will need at least 128 MB of RAM available on your computer to update Flash player, and Internet Explorer version 6.0 or later for Windows XP, version 7.0 or later for Windows Vista and Internet Explorer 8.0 or later for Windows 7.

Open Internet Explorer and navigate to Adobe's Flash player download site.
Click the download link and follow the instructions on your screen.


Click "Allow" or "Install" if your security system asks if you want to download the file.
Avoid running other programs while the download is going on.

Flash player tests itself by showing you a brief video when the download is complete.
If you do not see this video, the player has not been successfully installed and you must try the download again.

Adobe Flash Player failed to install.

When upgrading to a newer version of Adobe Flash Player, it (AFP), will not install if there is a previous version installed.

AND, it will Not automatically uninstall the older version.

Use the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller tool. After it is finished, go back to Adobe Flash Player Support, download, and install the latest version of Adobe Flash Player.

I'm trying to download Adobe Flash Player. I am unable to complete download as I get an error reading The ActiveX Control for Flash Player could not be registered. Unsure what this means or how to fix it....


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.

Thank you!" - paul7of9

Try downloading from the Adobe site. (http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/). After you click on the download button, follow the instructions. If the download window does not open, check your setting in your browser. If you are blocking downloads or pop up windows in your browser, you may have to respond to a message from your browser or disable that feature until after the download. You may have to disable your virus scanner until after the download as noted on the Adobe download page.

Adobe Flash Player download problem


Hi,
What Browser are you using, incidentally?
If you're trying to download the latest Flash Player, then maybe the link is detecting your browser... If you are using a 64-bit browser (I have no experience of these, I just think this might be worth a try) then maybe you should try installing Firefox and installing the Adobe Flash Player with that, to make sure you don't get 're-directed' to the 64-bit-message.
Try this link instead:

Hope this helps
