    Hi Hamlin,

     

    Can you please share your OS details next time you post your queries? From your Internet Explorer browser detail, I guess your's is a Windows based machine. Can you please read the following:

    Hope the above helps.

     

    With regards,

    Prabhu

    When I open Task Manager the only thing I see is "Tasks".  I do not see the Processes tab.

    You do not see something lik this:

    Can you post a screenshot of what you see?  I have never seen a Task Manager with a Tasks tab.

    This is not a "glitch"; in order to install an update, the old version must be uninstalled.  For this, all programs that use Flash Player must be closed.

    Another way of "closing" Internet Explorer is not to open it at all:
