Question Adobe Flash 10 and dial up
I have a Dell Inspiron 531S and use dial up access to the internet. I want to download adobe flash 10 but everytime it directs me to the adobe page that has the "install now" button, it just keeps loading the page over and over and the only way to exit is to do a ctrl-alt-del and end the task. I am wondering if this is because I have dial up and not a faster connection or if it could be that I have Mozilla installed on my pc (even though I do not use it). Can anyone help me? Thanks!

I don't think there's any link between your problem and your connection speed, or the fact that you have Mozilla (Firefox?) installed. I am able to update Flash player using dialup as it's only a 1.8 MB download (unless you accept the Google toolbar offerred to IE users, in which case it's over 3 MB).

There is an Active X version of Flash for IE and a non Active X version for Firefox, Opera etc and they both have the same version number. If you go to the Adobe downloads page using IE or Firefox you should be offerred the version appropriate for that browser.

If it's the IE version you're trying to install there is a Troubleshooter document that may be of some help to you; http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/191/tn_19166.html It is also possible that you have some sort of popup blocker or other 'security' program that could interfere with the download or installation.

I've always understood that the AOL browser is just IE with the AOL 'front' added. I did once know how to confirm that but I've completely forgotten because I don't use the AOL browser or IE.

If you're trying to install or upgrade the Flash plugin for IE it would probably be better to open IE itself and go to the Adobe downloads page (assuming you've run the Adobe uninstaller first if you are upgrading an older version).
