I am a first time user and joined to seek the answer to my question. I am attempting to upgrade by Adobe Flash version, but in the attempt to install the upgrade, I could not proceed through the screen sequences required. A comment on the screen indicated the installation may require that I first "temporarily disable" my anti-virus (spyware?) software - which I do not know how to do.

Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

There should be an icon for your av in the notification area of the taskbar. Right-click on that icon and you should see an option to disable.
