I used to ha
ve flash on my computer but yesterday it asked me to get the latest version and directed me t
o the download site. I opted out of the free virus protection, I have my own. I tried to d
ownload the flash program and it ends up not responding and thus I have to
stop all open pages etc. It even happens when it is the only page open. I have Norton and
F-Secure and ran both of them looking for viruses etc and found none. Can someone please help explain why I can't load this simple download....
Its always a good idea to turn off firewalls, and virus programs (presuming your downloading from a trusted site) before trying to install software remotely, you could possibly have security settings on either Norton and F-secure, and possibly even a firewall setting that will sometimes interupt things that aren't specifically allowed, and if your not set to be notified on a blocked packet, it appears to stall.
Thanks...I seem to have it under control now...fingers crossed....I turned off all blocks etc and uninstalled it and reinstalled it....hopefully that has fixed the issue. So far so good..
Your welcome, please post the resolution for others if you can, and mark the thread as answered.
