    Running Windows XP SP3
    I have disabled my Firewall, and Virus protection but it still gives me this message
    I have tried using Windows IE and also FireFox but same error message appears.
    Haven't insalled anything new on my pc for a long time and it had been doing the
    Adobe updates just fine in the past.

    When I try to update to the newest version of Adobe Flash Player I get the
    following message.

    When I click the "Yes" button nothing happens, it just sits there.
    When I click the "No" button, the install package closes and I get the following message.

    I'm afraid to uninstall the current Flash Player as I might not get the new one installed
    and then I'm really stuck. I looked at the troubleshooting page provided by Adobe but didn't
    see that particular issue described.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Uninstall Flash with the Flash Uninstaller.

    Don't install it online.

    Download the Flash Player installer from Filehippo and install it.

    Thanks Phantom,

    I downloaded the Flash Player from filehippo to my desktop then closed my browser and installed it - worked perfect.

    Maybe you could help me with one more quick question - Using Windows IE, how can I look at the pluggins that are currently installed on my PC? I just can't remember how to do this.

    Thanks again for the help on the Adobe thing - I was worried that I would never be able to update it again.

    Phantom010,

    Please disregard the last message on how to view current plugins - I just remembered on how to do it.
