Hi: I'm having extremely hard time downloading Flash Player. I recently up graded my Windows from Vista to 7. I went into You Tube and the Flash Player warning came on You need to upgrade your Adobe Flash Player to watch this video. " It also said that I have to download Flash Player, which I did. When I am downloading, the Flash Player is first slow in getting the application. When it does it takes about a minute to begin to install. The red bar begins to fill in the bar, then it stops at 12%. It then shows a timeout word.

I took this as the Flash Player had a hard time downloading in the time that is requested. I've done something's that I have thought would speed up the download.
I have transferred a lot of important files onto my external drive and deleted the files on my C: Drive. This did not help one bit.


What can I do? I need help with this!!! Right away!



Thank-you

Meg

You are saving the installer to your hard drive before running the installation, right?

Try downloading Flash from HERE.

Are you saving the program to your hard drive before installing it, or are you trying to run it right away?

Most of the time it works with "run" but when issues arise, sometimes saving and then running fix that issue. Not everything is intended to be 100% when it comes to computer instructions. ;)

I think it's always best to save the installers on your hard drive. You might need them again, especially later if you have to revert to an older version of a program and it's not available anymore...
