I am trying to download adobe flash player, and its asking me to make sure that I am connected to the internet, and obviously I am other wise I wouldn't have been able to get the download like.. so frustrating!!

    I have ran into that issue a couple of times. I had to go and download the full file from Adobe and by pass their download manger in order to get the file. I would suggest doing this to ensure you get the correct update without any further issues.

    Try downloading it from HERE instead. There's not download manager crap on that website.

    Make sure you've downloaded the 64-bit version of Flash if your have a 64-bit Windows 7 and want to use the 64-bit Internet Explorer.

    You may have downloaded it, but have you installed it?
