My system: Windows Vista Home Premium, IE9, desktop connected wireless to home network. I have uninstalled all versions of Adobe via the Control Panel, and when trying to download latest version of Flash Player, I get all the way through past the screen where you select how you want to receive updates, and then the next screen shows that I lose the connection after trying for a few minutes and then when I click on Finish, it isn't downloaded. Not sure why I keep losing the connection? I've tried several times now - am able to be on other internet programs so the connection is there... Help!
Download the following file by right clicking and selecting "Save target as".
Save the file to your Downloads folder - DO NOT RUN anything yet.
Reboot your system.
BEFORE opening anything else, go to your Downloads folder and run the ActiveX Installer.
