Adobe Flash Player

I am running IE 9, 32 Bit, Windows 7. I cannot download Flash Player. After I press the Download button, the process stops. Can someone please tell me what to do? I've contacted Adobe and tried all of their fixes, but nothing they tell me solves the issue. Thanks.

Something is stuck

In reply to: Adobe Flash Player

Get their uninstaller and uninstall it. Yes, you haven't installed it yet, but something is stuck on your first install. Run the uninstaller then try installing it.

Thank you for your advice. I uninstalled and installed several times. Still no success. Is there anything else I may try?

Tried It This Way..?

In reply to: Adobe Flash

First, uninstall Flash by using the downloadable Flash Uninstaller at the link below..

After that's done, then download the appropriate manual Flash player installer from the link below. If running two browsers, you may need both installers.

NOTE: Clicking on the links below will immediately open the download dialogue window.
Flash Player for IE:

Flash Player for Non-IE browser (Opera, Firefox etc):

Hope this helps.

Thanks Grif,
It downloaded, but it won't play. I still can't view videos, etc.

Thanks for you help. Anymore suggestions?

Wild idea.

In reply to: Adobe Flash

I wonder if this is that other issue? There are instances where the video can't be seen because the host machine has onboard video and a video card. For reasons I will not write here the video shows on the wrong VGA connection and the owner is on the other VGA connection.

This drives some folk to write something similar to the above.

This is why knowing more about this machine may help.
