Have been trying to install the latest Flash player, and everything goes just fine until I select "Run" on the downloaded installer utility. I can see the blasted thing running in Task Manager, but the GUI doesn't show up, and the process just sits there using about 20K of memory.
I'm running Windows XP.
How do I get this &^@#ing thing to cooperate?

Windows XP, as I said in the OP.
I did every bit of troubleshooting Adobe recommends on their site, and STILL have the same problem, save that now I have NO flash player at all.

Did you download the latest Flash Player for Windows XP, v.10.3.181.34 ? If you do use this link, please notice the option to also install the McAfee Security Plan which needs to be unchecked...unless you want to install it.

After the download, when you click on the Flash icon on your desktop to install, what happens? Do you receive any kind of error message or does the install just stop?

Please note, depending on your settings, you may have to temporarily disable your antivirus software.

Try running Temp File Cleaner to see if there is a locked temp file that is preventing this from happening.
