I receive time out notifications when I try to install Adobe Flash Player 11 for IE & SRWare Iron. On the website where I can check my current Flash Player version, I get prompted to activate the plug-in. See the following picture:
However, when I confirm the activation, I get the following error message in German. (I run Windows XP Professional 32-bit SP3.)
It basically states that I cannot activate the plug-in because of an error. Any attempts to install Flash Player from scratch fail because of the time out as reported by other users in this forum.
Down the appropriate installers and uninstallers and exit browser.
Uninstall all Flash Players.
Delete the Windows/System32/Macromed/Flash folder.
Install the appropriate Flash Players.
