I am running windows 7, 64 bit laptop, windows explorer. I am trying to download flash player and get 50% then it tells me to close windows explorer?
uninstall flash player (http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/uninstall-flash-player-windows.html) then manually download and install (http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html).
