    I cannot download Adobe Flash Player! I continue to get error msgs. such as: Only a single instance of this application can run.Also, IE tells me it is not a secure site and therefore is blocking it. What does all this mean?

    Make sure your computer has the correct date and time.

    Try downloading the Adobe Flash Player from HERE instead and install it.

    Thanks for trying but I only have 32bits. My problem is my security settings - they will not allow me to download. How can I fix this? Thanks!
