I've tried all the suggestion for enabling script, managing add-ons, uninstalling old versions of player. When I try to install adobe flash player, it downloads the file and tried to install the program. When it is finished it shows a window that says that the player wasn't successfully installed. I tried download the install file by using "run" but that had the same results. I checked to see if the program was in the add remove control center. It wasn't listed. I rebooted the system and tried several times to install the program, no luck, same message at the end of the install process, not installed.
I don't know why it's working now but. An update window appeared on the
monitor for Adobe Flash Player. I clicked the button on the window to
update the file. It went through a download then install. After that the
flash player started working. Thank you for sending the links. I'll copy
them to a folder for any future needs.
I saved the file from micromedia. That should fix any future problems.
