My firewall shows download and install of flashplayer from "aihdownload.adobe.com/bin/install_flashplayer11x32ax_gtbd_chrd_dn_au_aih.exe" in one case. Several other download and installs of flashplayer show download was from "aihdownload.adobe.com/bin/live/install..." Concerned that first install (without the '/live/' in the address may be a bad site that downloaded and installed a virus. Does anyone know if this is the case?
Perfectly normal. Some versions of Flash require a reinstall from the ground up and standalone installers will also connect to the normal location. The live page is only for incremental updates/ updates initiated from a browser via the respective Adobe page. Check the firewall details, the domain and IP no doubt are the same....
You can also download the offline installer(s) from http://helpx.adobe.com/content/help/en/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player- windows.html#main-pars_header
