Tried to load Flash to view and hear videos etc. Made sure one was not already avail. W/7 pro on dell Inspiron 580 desk top.Recently installed Western Digital Black 2TB and a clean install from original disc. Had Flash before but keep getting failed to install. Task Manager  says only partial install. Can not load offline either. Tried Adobe, Microsoft forms ( they are redundant ). Adobe Acrobat previously installed fine also Cheat Engine loaded but keep getting error messages there as well, works occasionally. Norton says it is let thru but I disabled it as well as Ad Blocker and Ghostery. Hoping not to have  to   wipe drive for another clean install

Hi KustenVatch and :welcome: to Bleeping Computer :)

 

Which browser are you using? Try going to another website with flash. Does it work there?

Hey,Thanks for the quick response. Using latest version of firefox  (have 64 bit) on Dell. Yes I tried on IE and Chrome. It appears that only 32 bit is avail but the 32 is supposed to work fine. On advice from another I loaded a de-bugger from Microsoft (supposed to help) but no help there. I will try another website tomorrow like cnet and see what happens thanks for the thought

Perhaps try a clean flash install after using the Flash Uninstaller tool from Adobe.

Are you aware that most sites aren't using Flash anymore? They are using html. Maybe that's your problem.

Yes I am aware of the HTML5 but Amazon (for all their progressiveness ) Prime still use Flash, of which I am a member so... I must use it in this instance, wish they would use HTML. A much better protocol. Going to try the uninstaller.

Just to confirm, Windows is at SP1 and you used this site for the offline download, correct?

Just so everyone knows this, that Shockwave has been removed from both Mozilla and Chrome due to it's propensity to have malware in it. After some research apple has not used it since 2010 because as Steve Jobs said " It has abysmal security". So if you are trying to down load it forgetaboutit! Hopefully the powers that be will start using HTML5 or there is something better on the horizon. Thanks to everyone for the help.

FYI, Amazon was supposed to begin replacing Flash and Silverlight with html5 last year. But it looks like they have had technical problems with the switch.
