First, I don't remember *uninstalling* Flash Player, but a video didn't load and it told me to download FP, so I tried, and got an error message that said it couldn't download because it was already in use. After reading through the troubleshooting pages, I used the uninstaller to make sure FP wasn't already on my system and just hiding, and then I closed out of everything I possibly could, even checked the task manager to make sure nothing was running. I tried to download FP again (3x) and it failed every time, always saying it couldn't complete the download because it was already in use. I did the test thingie and couldn't see the image, so I don't have it on my system (again, I used to have it and it seems to have voluntarily disappeared itself). I can't figure out why I can't just download FP. Any ideas?
I'm operating Windows Vista and IE9.
Please download Flash Player from the following link: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html#mai n-pars_header
Close all browsers and double-click the downloaded file.
Make sure that you close all applications that make use of Flash: messengers, chat clients, Skype, etc.
