I don't know why this is happening; I suggest that you try an alternate installation method:
- first, download the FP uninstaller from http://www.adobe.com/go/tn_14157 (save to disk);
- download the offline ActiveX installer http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_ax.exe (save to disk);
- close all browser windows, then run the downloaded uninstaller, followed by the installer.
Let us know if it is better now.
Pat... Perhaps I was not reading what was in the yellow bar at the top of my screen correctly. Here it is word for word:
>This website wants to run the following add-on: Adobe Flash Player from Adobe Systems Incorporated. If you trust the website and the add-on and want to allow it to run, click here...<
So, I'm thinking that it's asking to run Flash Player, not asking me to download it. But, is it normal to get this question over and over and over when I go to just about any website, except the very simple web sites?
I was having the same problem and was going crazy trying to get it fixed, So here's your solution in quick fast laymans terms for
the flash player with Internet Explorer
The problem is IE sees this type of add on as a potential threat and wants you verify it is a trusted source
unfortunaly it is some kind of delayed reaction so it doesn't show until after you have restarted your computer, leaving you with the impression that this is just some "pop up " that won't go away
go to your "START" menu ('03- for '07 the windows icon is your start menu)
at the search bar key in ADOBE
you should see a couple adobe files, what ever you have installed plus one called "get Adobe Flash Player" ( this is because flash player is not fully installed) double click on "get Adobe Flash Player"
read and agree to terms(as always) and click on agree and install
now your popup warning bar will appear,
click on warning bar
click on "run add on "
when prompted choose "install active X"
I actually had to do the last part twice don't know why
But the problem is fixed
