Download the following file:
Reboot your computer (yes, actually reboot)
Run the file you just downloaded
That should get you going.
1. Thanks for the reply. The file did save and download, but when rebooted, flash player isn't installed. Therefore, still not working.
Edit: Sorry, just read your reply more carefully.
After rebooting, you actually have to run the installer that you downloaded in the previous steps. The reason I wanted you to reboot and immediately run the installer was to eliminate the possibility that something else was keeping Flash Player in-use (we can't replace it if it's running) and preventing the install from completing.
Do you see anything on a super-simple Flash site like this:http://www.homestarrunner.com/
If the installation completed, but Flash isn't working, it's probably something else.
This is my first guess:
Also, what version of Internet Explorer are you using?
I determined the player isn't working, because several sites show Flash needs to be downloaded still, including testing at the Adobe website. So, the download worked the install showed 100% and done, and I clicked the file to install, but it didn't work still.
It sounds like it's installed, but either the remote website isn't detecting Flash or your ActiveX filtering settings need to be adjusted to allow Flash Player to run.
I provided instructions above on how to modify the ActiveX filtering settings. Please try those and let me know how it works out.
The thing is I don't use IE. The problem is occurring on Firefox, so there's not an activex filter. Any other ideas? I'm having downloading issues with other programs (ex. Chrome). So there's something wrong with my computer. It's not a Firewall issue, because, I've tried to shut off Firewall and download and issue remains the same.
Confirmed, that link worked, I now have the latest version of flash on my system working. Thank you.
