I have installed flash player several times. I am able to use it during a session; then, it disappears. Also, every download is a problem. I try downloading as the administrator and get messages about closing IE. When I do that and finally get the file downloaded, it does not stay. I have never seen a program disappear once it has been downloaded. I have Windows 7 home premium. Can anyone help with this? Please don't respond with technical jargon because I am not a techie. I just want to be able to see photographs, videos, etc. without a hassle.
Let's start from the beginning and see if we can start fresh.
First uninstall your flash player using the instructions described here - http://forums.adobe.com/message/4041846#4041846
Note - make sure to delete all 4 folders in step 4:
- extract and navigate into the 11_7_r700_202 folder (not the debug folder)
- install both flashplayer11_7r700_202_win.exe, and flashplayer11_7r700_202_winax.exe
