I have been having this issue for days and trying everything suggested on IE sites and Adobe sites.
First I couldn’t open PDF files and it wouldn’t let me reinstall adobe after I uninstalled it. I ended up using Google Chrome to download Adobe Reader and Adobe Flash and so far that has cured my problem with PDF documents.
Now when I go to a game site that uses Flash Player, it asks me to update it, but when I try to download flash player in IE11 it says it couldn’t download, then the browser session ends and disconnects. Also when I use the checker to see what version I have while in IE11, it says I have none installed.
I was able to download Adobe Flash in Google Chrome and enjoy websites that use flash while I am in Google Chrome. I don’t understand how I can have Adobe installed in Chrome but it doesn’t show up when I am using IE11.
I like the menu bar at the top that IE11 has, but am afraid I am going to have to migrate away from Internet explorer completely after using it for many years unless someone can help me figure this out.
I am moving this to the "Installing Flash Player" forum for attention
From where you are trying to install flash player for IE11 and what is the name of the file?
Kindly go to https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer from you IE browser and click on install now button. A file will be downloaded, save it and then Run it to install flash player for IE browser.
I had tried that many times before, but re tried just now. I got the same
message that flashplayer install exe couldnt be downloaded, and another
message popped up saying that Internet Explorer stopped working. I have
tried save/run, save, and run as well.
