I have pop ups turned off, no firewall, no antivirus installed at the moment
I have tried to install Adobe flash and reader. I get a flash of a pop up, then the site displays a "preparing installation" bar and then nothing...
I have tried the direct install as well. I am using IE9 and I have also tried Chrome.
If you still have problems, please post the contents of the FlashInstall.log file from C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash
