Hello, after taking my daughters laptop, (Toshiba Satellite) running Win7, back to factory settings due to a series of problems, everything seemed to be fine until she tried to play a u-tube video, (or any video clip), a message pops up saying you need to update Adobe flash player, so, after clicking on the update button another message pops up saying Adobe flash player already exists, do you want to replace it, and after clicking the replace button the download starts, gets to 48% of download, appears to be still downloading but never gets any further than 48%.
Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Go into Control Panel >> Programs & Features & uninstall any Adobe Flash Player entries

There will be at least one entry listed as Adobe Flash Player 10 ActiveX,
and if Firefox has ever been installed, there'll be another called Adobe Flash Player 10 Plugin.
Uninstall them both.

Now visit the Flash Player website to download & install a fresh copy: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

First of all uninstall your all players which
already exist in your laptop and than install
Flash Player 10.3.181.14 (IE). its the latest version
of the Flash player. i am sure that it works very well
To install this flash player just go to the following site

We here at GeeksToGo will not assist you with issues relating to P2P file sharing programs. While many of these programs are-in-and of themselves legal, most things acquired by their use are not. Instead of attempting to differentiate between the legal use of P2P programs and the illegal use thereof, we have decided to stop helping with issues regarding this software. It is also in your best interest to know that many P2P software packages come bundled with spyware/malware/viruses and that their use greatly increases the chances of your computer becoming infected. I strongly suggest that you uninstall these programs and refrain from using them at all costs.
