Is your account an administrator account? Usually this happens when the account is a standard user.
I've never had issues before so my friend created an Admin account and we
tried from there but it syill would not install. Same message.
Downloading anything does not require Administrator permissions; installing however does.
Try the following
- download the offline installers from http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html#mai n-pars_header and save it to disk
- close all browser windows, then run the downloaded installers
If you still get that error message, then I strongly suspect that your system is infected with malware.
I highly suspect I'm infected by Malware. Any suggestions on the best way
to get rid of it?
Try the free version of http://www.malwarebytes.org/
However, there is a chance that it also won't allow you to download this. In that case, download it on a different computer, then use a memory stick or such to transfer it to the infected computer.
Thank you so much!!
