Winxp/2.4ghz/120gig/windows explorer 6 with current updates.

I have tried everything-turn off firewall-everything. When I click the "download" button to download flashplayer, all I get is a blank box with the colored triangle in the corner. Help! :(

Do a search and delete all Flash.ocx and Swflash.ocx files before you try to download and install the 7.0.19.0 version. See if that helps.

I tried everything you all said, still no luck.Would having realplayer or some other player be interfering? Thanks for your help.

RealPlayer is known to be problematic. I got rid of it from both of my computers a long time ago.

Make sure to turn off any antivirus and firewall programs(s) you have running before you download the Flash plug-in.

Still no luck. looks like I'm destined not to have it. I'm open to any more suggestions you all may have, and again, thanks for your help.

Do you use "Spywareblaster"?
If yes go to "tools/Flash Killer" and look if Macromedia Flash Killer is disabled or not.
