After numerous Flash crashes I tried to uninstall/reinstall newest Flash Player with Mozilla Firefox ~ unsuccessfully. Next I tried to complete a "clean install" of the newest Adobe Flash Player using Internet Explorer on my Windows XP. Uninstall & delete files seems to have worked but, I save the install download to my desktop, choose run program and the run program dialogue box disappears then the install program icon disappears from my desktop and there seems to be no evidence of any Flash Player download at all anywhere in my system that I can find. Despite redoing these steps, the results remain the same. What is happening and what can I do to be able to successfully download Flash Player again? Add ons + security features are not set to prevent this as far as I can tell. I had the latest version with occasional crash problems prior to this attempt to correct that, but now I have nothing. Help!
If you are trying to install Flash Player on Mozilla Firefox, you need to download Flash Player using Firefox. I think you downloaded Flash Player using Internet Explorer. I am not clear on why the downloaded Flash Player file disppears from your machine.
Could you 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 file you downloaded.
