not sure if it makes any difference but i use Google Chrome as a web browser

  rdave13 19:58 19 Nov 2010

It will. If you've used Adobe's uninstaller with all apps closed then install the non-OE installer; click here

I mean non-IE not 'non-OE'.

'will i also need to download adobe flash non IE'

Yes, as you use Chrome. Installing it in Chrome click here.

Didn't you mean flash player & not 'reader'? G
