Try this

From Macromedia's website:

Internet Explorer ActiveX settings

Although your browser security settings should be chosen by you or your system Administrator, the 'Medium: Default Level' will allow you to view Macromedia Flash content. For any Custom Level, ensure that both "Download Signed ActiveX controls" and "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" are not disabled. (Enable or Prompt will work).

To view your Security Level do the following:

Open Internet Explorer.
Choose Tools then Internet Options.
Select the Security tab.
Choose Internet.
Ensure that "Download Signed ActiveX controls" and "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" are not disabled.

If you are having trouble installing make certain that your Internet Explorer security level is not set to High or at a custom level which does not allow viewing of ActiveX controls.

Did you have any previous versions of Flash before attempting this?

Do you have any pop-up blockers installed?

Your last post was back in February this year.
I am trying to solve the same Macromedia Flash problem you described (unable to download same).
I wonder if you solved the problem. If you did, could you please post your solution here? Many people will thank you. Especially me! I have followed all the tips and hints and instrucions and have still never been able to do that download.
Cordially,
Cronista
