    Can't download via the direct link for IE (HTTP 403 Forbidden)

    GordonOla

      Win7 Pro SP1 32-bit
      IE 10.0.9200.16635

       

      When I try to download/install from  http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ I get the "cannot contact reliable source", so I then tried the Direct link for ActiveX/IE:


      and I get a HTTP 403 Forbidden. I have also tried that link in Firefox and Opera, but all I get is an empty page. I've also tried with antivirus off, firewall off etc... no luck.

       

      BUT... If I try the second direct link(Plug-in/All other browsers)

      Then I started up an old XP PC just to compare, and the download ActiveX version were succesful.
      Why doesn't the direct link for ActiveX work on my Win7 PC, regardless what browser I use?

      (I have never had any problems with updating/installing Flash Player before, on any computer including my Win7)
