Unable to Find/Download Macromedia Flash 6 Player

by pepperkay / November 22, 2005 2:13 AM PST

Hi All:

I'm trying to get to a FUJI film site and it tells me that I need Flash 6 to view ...

It gives a clicklink to download but when I do and start the download, the images disappear and nothing happens ...

Any suggestions ?? ...

Thanks ...

Can not download from Macromedia ...
by pepperkay / November 22, 2005 4:21 AM PST

When I go to the site mentioned, I click on download ...

I get a message stating that I may have to click the 'gold' bar at the top of the page to start the download ...

When I then click DOWNLOAD, I get an identical screen sans the Macromedia 'F' logo and nothing happens ...

popup blockers?
by linkit / November 22, 2005 7:45 AM PST

Check to see if you have any popup blockers/popup shields or activeX blockers running. These may be part of an antivirus or antispyware program; or they may be part of an ISP program (such as from EarthLink, Yahoo!, AOL, etc.). Disable the blocker and try again. Any luck?

Also, try from a different browser. Use Firefox if IE6 doesn't work.

administrator account?
by linkit / November 22, 2005 7:48 AM PST

What operating system are you using?

If Windows XP, are you trying to install Flash Player from a limited account? Try logging into an administrator account and then installing. Any luck?

Macromedia Flash woes ...

In reply to: administrator account?

I have double checked to ensure that I have nothing blocking the Flash download ... all checks OK ...

I'm using XP-Home and am the Administrator account for this computer ...

I checked with AOL Tech Support this morning and they've given me a 'punch list' ot items to check and double check and then follow their instructions to rebuild the AOL Adapter ...

I'll try all they've suggested and then return to the Macromedia site for another go at a Flash download ...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
