It gets to a point where it says to close IE (and it is already closed) and keeps prompting me to close IE... and cannot finish installing. I have Windows 7, 64 bit system.
I didn't have problems until we upgraded to IE9... flashplayer is installed successfully when I use Chrome... so it is frustrating to not be able to use my preferred Internet Explorer browser!
Download the following files:
Close ALL programs on your taskbar to ensure none is running I.E. in the background. Check the Processes of Task Manager to ensure iexlpore.exe or messenger programs are not running.
Click Start, type System Configuration, click System Configuration, click Selective startup, uncheck Load startup items, click Apply, click Ok, click Restart.
Click Start, type System Configuration, click System Configuration, click Normal startup, click Apply, click Ok, click Restart.
Well, it seemed to have installed correctly after doing all Carl told me to do, but now when I open a website with certain videos it still tells me I need to install Adobes latest Flash player. So I downloaded it successfully according to the computer screen, but it still won't open videos and tells me I need to download latest version... it's like I am in the Twilight zone!!!
Any other helpful ideas???? Chrome works fine. It's Internet Explorer 9 with my Windows 7 - 64 bit system... (I downloaded the 64 bit system version)
Thank you again!!! It actually worked this time! When i clicked the gear button, manage add ons, toolbars & extensions, and saw that the download for flash player wasn't enabled, that solved the problem! At least now I know I am not crazy!!!
Hi there, I too have had big problems installing the Adobe Flash Player. I have followed all of the instructions above, and evidently it is installed and enabled on the computer, however I still can't run the program that requires Adobe Flash Player. When I search for Adobe Flash Player in the Control Panel, it comes up as "Flash Player 32 bit", even though as far as I knew I was downloading the 64 bit Adobe Flash Player. No matter what I do I can't get it to work. Please help!!
