Hi, I have read and tried a lot of the solutions in other postings on this problem but cannot get it to install. I have used the Flash Player uninstall program but when I try to re-install either nothing happens or it gets as far as starting to download then I get an error message saying the installation failed, have tried uninstalling then rebooting and still no joy when re-installing. I feel it may be the security settings? Would be grateful for any advice.
I had the very same problem. After much digging around the Adobe site I found the answer. You need to download Flash Player as a 'stand alone' program and install it outside of IE and reboot your system. At this point in time I can't remember the web page to direct you to for the Flash program. It seems that if you try to install the program through IE is when the problem pops up.
Should be less than 2mb, and 9.047 is the latest official one; click here
Another way to update is close all browsers, go to c:\windows\system32\macromed\flash, locate the Flashutil9x.exe (where x will be the letter b,c or d) and run it. It will download (or not if it's up to date as Flash9d oughtt to be) and install the latest version.
