Flash Player Download Failure

by pfmills / January 13, 2007 3:36 PM PST

Windows XP Professional SP2
Laptop HP xe4500
Live One Care

I had Norton IS 2006 but now have gone to Live One Care, since Norton decided to tell me that my subscription had expired even though I had only opened the box and installed it some 3-months ago.

With both I got the Flash Player download failure everytime the updates ran.

Now with Live Care it causes the icon to be orange and not green due to 'install missing updates'.

The error code is 0x643 and the download is KB923789.

I assume that I will have flash player else the update wouldn't try to download?

Sorry but I need a pretty basic detailed answer as to what to look for and do........Thanks

Thank you looks ok now

I looked at the link, however the link failed.
Went to microsoft site, found the downloads and di them manually.
All now seems ok

As I said earlier for some reason NIS decided to tell me it was a year old, however I know it had 252 days left a few days ago. Now it has none so I uninstalled it and put on Windows Live One Care. Doing a symantics check all was ok except that it told me ..No Known Anti-virus installed. It said it checks for a current version of a common product. Is it that it just doesn't reconise Live one care?

So I have Live One Care and this sufficent please?..I do internet bank on my computer. Or should I put on something like AVG?

Thanks for you help.

Thank you

I use AVG Free Antivirus, and that is active from They have a 30 day trial for spyware also, after 30 days it will be grey and black squares with an s in tthe middle.
I also use: Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06 and have used it for four years now on 3 Windows 98SE, WINME & WINXP and it is Antispyware also. Another is Spybot S&D from (Antispyware). It downloads best at night. BN FileForum
& again listed at Click the Download at the top. If you see !!!checksum bad!, that is a problem. You may have to wait til later to get Spybot. If it runs okay, it may say 55083 and that is short. I have 57834 and that has to be immunized. Under Spybot S&D are 3 manual updates. It should have had: Total: 348611 fingerprints in 58163 rules for 2611 products.
