This will hopefully get the attention of Mike M who was unable to answer the question I posed yesterday regarding the installation of Adobe Flash Player due to lack of sufficient information from my end.
This is the information I should have provided in my question. I have a Vista Home Basic operating system and I use Internet Explorer as my browser. I hope that this helps to answer my question. Please let me know if you need any further information.
Download the following files by right clicking and selecting Save target as".
Save ALL files to your Downloads folder - DO NOT RUN anything yet.
Reboot your system.
BEFORE opening anything else, go to your Downloads folder and run the UNINSTALLERS to remove all instances of Flash Player and Shockwave.
Run the Flash Player ActiveX Installer.
After that, run the Shockwave FULL installer for ActiveX.
Once everything is installed, see: Enabling Flash Player in Internet Explorer to make 100% sure that Flash Player is enabled.
