Thank you for your reply. That is the page I have been using......as mentioned above, I have now managed to install the latest Flash Player after 'unblocking' the security setting on my computer that was preventing installation. I have no idea where this security setting is, I need to know so that I can alter it and not have the same problem in future.
I am asking if anyone knows where this security setting can be found.
This is a setting in your computer, it has nothing to do with Flash Player. I performed an internet search for "This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer" and this got many hits. A few of the top hits were:

I've not tried any of these, and can't speak for their effectiveness. I recommend you perform your own search and experiment with different solutions or go to visit the following Microsoft sites for assistance: support.microsoft.com answers.microsoft.com
Thank you very much for helping me Maria and taking the time to post those useful links.
Seems there is no easy way to disable this setting, but I will look further into the information you have provided.
I did realise the message was coming from my computer when I opened the download file, only wish I had been notified when I first tried to install / update Flash Player. Had I not later decided to open 'Properties' I would never have seen the "This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer" message and known why I couldn't install it!
