Why is the Adobe Flash certificate revoked?

Jul 12, 2012 11:39 AM

My computer refuses to download Adobe Flash on the account of it being 'untrustworthy', and that it's 'certificate authentication failed'. Why is this? Why has the certificate been revoked and how can I undo it? Can someone help please!

    I have never seen or heard of such a message; can you post a screenshot of that?

     

    What, b.t.w., is your operating system and version?

    Are you trying to run the installer from an Administrator account?

     

    If yes, and the message still appears, can you check if there is anything in the Local Security Policy (Software Restriction Policies or Application Control Policies) that blocks the installer?  (Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Local Security Policy)

    I couldn't find anything directly called 'Local Security Policy' or any of the other things you mentioned.

    Can you try locating it via Start button, then type Local Security Policy into the search field.

     

    It must be something in there; I don't know where else it could be blocked.
