Download the Adobe Flash Player installer directly by right clicking one (or both) of the following links and choosing "Save as".
Save the file(s) to your downloads folder - DO NOT run anything yet.
Reboot your system.
BEFORE you open anything else, locate and run the installer(s).
I somehow lost my flash player and have the same problem with lost connection when trying to install. I cannot even download the flash player. by right clicking as you suggested. It is stuck at 0% download. Any thoughts? This is getting irritating?
Disable Antivirus and firewall.
A right click download is purely your browser (no installer), so those two are the only things that will affect it.
If you're stillunalbe to download it, you may need to do so at a different location and save it to a flash drive.
