Hello Everyone,

I am having a problem downloading the Adobe Flash Player, some sites, such as, my local news etc. Cannot show the graphics or suchlike because I don't have Adobe Flash Player installed, when asked do I want to install the flash player (I have lost count how many times I have been asked) I always click Yes to download it, But nothing happens.

I have even been to the Adobe site and tried to download the Flash Player from there, to no avail.

I have asked my grandson and daughter both, if they could try and download it for me, to no avail.

Is there something I am not doing right, or is there a problem with the Adobe site.

I am using Windows XP Pro, and Internet Explorer 7.

Or does anyone have a link to Adobe Flash player you know does work, I could save the link to My Documents and load it from there, Hopefully.

Thank you for any help you may be able to give me.

Judda.

Hello DaChew,

I tried to download it from your link, but the same thing happened, I get the green squares at the bottom of the page, they complete then nothing.

Thank you for trying to help me.

Judda.

Hello DaChew,

Sorry for not responding sooner, I have been away from the PC.

I did see the yellow bar at the top and clicked to install the Active X, then I sit and wait, the line at the bottom fills up with green squares (which I presume is telling me the Adobe Flash player is loading)
Then nothing.

Whenever I try to download anything a (helpfile for instance) I have to try and save it, then read the file from my documents (where I saved it to) otherwise I get the notice, Windows cannot access this file etc,etc,.

I have downloaded the latest drivers for my PC, from PC Pitstop etc,. all my anti virus, firewall, is up to date. I am a loss as what to do.

Thanks for any help you have given, or may give in the future, without you guys I would be one lost senior computer user.

Judda.
