If you don't have enough privileges then maybe you need to right click on the download file and " Run As Administrator" where you will be prompted to enter the admin credentials of the actual PC.
IF you are on Win8.X and above then Flash updates are handled by Windows updates for Internet Explorer ONLY
What Operating system are you on is kind of important to know as well
A good article is here, which is what you prob seen: What userid & password do I need to install Flash Player?
I'm running Windows 7 professional. I guess that is useful information lol
I've tried running it as administrator and it still gives the error. It's
installed and enabled, but it's like it forgets. So if I go to a site
needing it it tells he to install it. Then no matter what it refuses to
install. So I click the link to troubleshoot and the first thing it asks is
to check that it's installed. Does the check and says it is, then it runs
like a champ until I turn the computer off and it starts all over again.
If I go into my add ons, it says it's installed and enabled, but like I
said, unless I go through all of that it won't work.
Try following these directions to remove all variants ( a video is included ) How do I do a clean install of Flash Player - Windows?
You also might want to run the following below, which are the offline installers, which is what I prefer for a multitude of reasons:
This is an uninstaller for ALL flash versions: http://download.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/support/uninstall_flash_player.exe
Then download and install the true installers:
- Flash Player for Internet Exporer - ActiveX
- Flash Player for Firefox - NPAPI
- Flash Player for Opera and Chromium-based browsers - PPAPI
I would still go an yank the system files after doing the uninstall , then running the installers below.
btw if any mod sees this they need to correct the spelling of explorer on the offline install page.
Hopefully you are confident to delete those system files if not, then just try the uninstaller followed by the installs i have listed.
Please make sure all your browsers are closed, if not it might not install correctly.
Hope that works
I will definitely give this a shot and I appreciate the help. I guess if
all else fails I'll wait for the Windows 10 update and hope everything
works. I've never had as much trouble work a computer in my life until I
bought an HP and nothing has worked right. This is just the one thing I
can't figure out. But again, thank you so much for the help, I truly
