Flash Player Installers for IE8 and Firefox 43 will not launch. Running XP SP3 on old Gateway laptop, with Avast-Free. Started when unable to update Flash, as I had always done. Now automatic installer will not launch nor will full programs, which I downloaded from Adobe.
None of the following will launch:
install_flash_player_22_active_x.exe or msi
install_flash_player_22_plugin.exe or msi
When any of these files are left clicked, it blinks once and goes nowhere. I uninstalled Flash from IE8 via the control panel. The Flash Player Settings shows NPAPI having 188.8.131.52 installed and nothing for IE8. I have not done an uninstall for Flash in Firefox, for concern that I will have no way to live stream anything. Sw_uninstaller.exe will run, but have yet to run it. Rebooting has not been useful. All other install programs (non-Adobe) seem to run. Malware/virus checks with Malwarebytes, Avast and SDScan were negative. Where next?
