"error in script on this page" while trying to install adobe flash player 11.4.402.278

hello, all --

 

 

i am a newbie of long standing , so please forgive my ignorance.  i plead for mercy from the kind and generous people who answer inquiries here.

 

 

i got a notice on my computer that a newer version of adobe flash player was available.  the one i had at the time was 11.4.402.265.  the newer version was 11.4.402.278.  i got to where i thought was the right place and clicked "download."  within a few seconds i got a message saying that a "script error" had occurred on the page and did i want to continue running this script.

 

-- line 1

-- char 12948

-- error, object expected

-- code 0

-- URL http://127.0.0.1:1127/app/_js/adobe.js

 

it doesn't seem to matter whether i click "yes" or "no" on continuing to run the script.  the next thing that happens is that i get a second "script error" notice.

 

 

-- line 1

-- char 1180

-- error, 'globalActiveActionItems' is undefined

-- code 0

-- URL http://127.0.0.1:2501/app/_js/adobe.js

 

 

it doesn't matter whether i click "yes" or "no" on whether i want to keep running the script.  the screen reverts to saying that it is "retrieving install," then i get the second "script error" message again.  and to make things worse, i can't get rid of the "retrieving install" screen; it has the minimizer button and the "quit" button (x), but the "quit" button does nothing, so for now i've simply minimized it.

 

what has happened here?  what should i do to fix it?  i've tried going back to the beginning and redoing it, but i end up over and over again with the second "script error" message.  i've tried making sure that "scripting" is "enabled" under "tools/internet options/scripting," then closing and reopening internet explorer (a suggestion i found in a similar thread), but the same things keep happening.

 

i am on a dell optiplex 330, windows pro XP/SP3, IE 8.0.6001.18702.

 

 

thanks to anyone who has any suggestions for me.

    I don't see any ignorance here; you are one of the very few posters who actually provide some real information, like your operating system and browser.   Thank you, and welcome [back] to the forums!

     

    I do not know what causes these script errors, but I suggest that you proceed to the following link and download, then run the offline installer: http://helpx.adobe.com/content/help/en/flash-player/kb/installation-pr oblems-flash-player-windows.html#main-pars_header

     

    Note that Internet Explorer must be closed during the install.

    That is not how computers usually behave; mostly it is the other way around...

     

    But I'm glad your computer did the right thing!

     

    Don't hesitate to come back if you need more help.

    I have the same exact problem

     

    -- line 1

    -- char 12948

    -- error, object expected

    -- code 0

    -- URL http://127.0.0.1:1127/app/_js/adobe.js

     

    except

     

    it looks like this being on line 2 and not on line 1

     

    -- line 2

    -- char 12948

    -- error, object expected

    -- code 0

    -- URL http://127.0.0.1:1127/app/_js/adobe.js
