    Every time I go to a site that uses Adobe Flash Player 10 it says I need to install it to use the site. I have downloaded Adobe Flash Player 10 multiple times. The Adobe Web site verifies that I have the latest version and the Windows Program list shows Flash Player 10. However, it shows Flash Player with 0 bytes.

    Direct Download for IE users:
    http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_ax.exe

    Direct Download link for Firefox, Safari, Opera:
    http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player.exe

    Flash Player uninstaller:
    http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash_player.exe

    Flash Player test page:
    http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

    These links should be good for each newer version of Flash because the newer version gets uploaded to the site.

    So bookmark this page or the sites.
    Well can't bookmark the Direct Download links bit they change to the newer version when it comes out.
    I have used the same links for the last 4 update this month.

    These are offline installs and with IE that can be a pain it makes it all very easy.
    Just close your Browsers and install.
    Then check the version at http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

    Thanks for the suggestions. They did not work any differently than just clicking a websites download Adobe Flash for Free button. However, the problem seems to be NOSCRIPT blocking a needed website. By allowing that website on NOSCRIPT I am able to use the sites.

    Yes to get that site to work NoScript needs the rights.

    But just the install trouble is always taken away when you do the offline installs. That is once you get the install files.

    So glad you got things taken care off.

    Both of the installs for the flash in the links above are for a download of the "flash installer".
    You download the file and install it but you need to download it and then close down IE, Firefox or what ever browser you have open.
    Then click the flash file to install.
    It ask about reading the EULA and you have to check a box saying you read it to be able to install the program.
    Then when you install it right away it's over because it's a simple install that takes a couple seconds.

    Doing a online install you run into trouble because of your browser, or add-ins like you did with NoScript.

    But it is worse with IE because IE has so many settings and most do not know what does what so can not get the flash to install or you go tru a install but it never really installed so you get no where.

    So doing the offline installs all you need to do is download the file and close your browser and install. Maybe tell your firewall OK.
