Problems installing Flash Player?

  warspite014 19:23 13 May 2009

If I haven't enough problems! I am trying to follow a link from a website and keep getting a message that Flash Player is required and therefore nedds to be inastalled. I follow the link and download Flash Player seemingly without any problems as it says if I see the movie and following text then installation is complete. I see the movie and the text. However when I then try to follow the link again I keep getting the Flash Player is required message. Any ideas?

what version of IE were you using? If it was the 64 bit version then flash will not work with it.
