I can not update my flash player because I don't know the password. what can I do?
you don't need an adobe password for flash player. you're probably using a mac and being prompted for its (the mac) password.
[moved from Installing, Updating, & Subscribing to Acrobat to Installing Flash Player]
This is your OS prompting for the password, not Flash Player. See What userid & password do I need to install Flash Player? for any further help.
