I have worked thru the topic on here with all the steps. when i uninstalled it apparently did not get all of it and even though i have done disk cleanup and rebooting something is remaining behind. Some of the time it says that i have a more recent version already installed but i dcontinue to get the warning that I need to install the adobe flash player while going about my business on the laptop. I am not sure if what i ws trying to do is not being successful is because this is 32 bit on my laptop. OS is Windows Vista Home Premium.
Internet explorer. For whatever reason, i tried firefox in the past and it just does not work .
Can someone please help me with this crazy challenge ?? Oh I know someone can I have received excellent assist in the past.

Thank you

well, here i am back again with the same challenge with downloads. I am not sure what I am doing incorrectly. I need to know why i keep getting the challenge of being told that the download is there. I have cleared out the downloads from previous downloads assuming that the file was full and perhaps it was unable to download properly due to those being there to an overflow of capacity ?? Obviously, I am wandering thru this. Another time in the past on another computer there were challenges with not being able to even make an option to save or open so I don't know what i am doing.
Should i remove once more and try to download or is there something that i am missing here???? Help please. I need to download forms periodically and it just is not happening.

Have you checked your browser options to see where it is saving the files to?

the little blue and gray thing that is supposed to show the progress of what is being downloaded never completes its task. sometimes the numbers show approx. half. I have uninstalled and downloaded and installed the reader and player which is what is peculiar to me because when i opt to download or save some other object it won't happen BUT installing and downloading the reader and the flash player states that it is complete. my virus protector flashes keeps flashing messages that different aspects of it are safe and ok to download.

So is the problem the flash player again or is it the downloads do not finish?
I;m confused because your first post seems to me you are running out of hard drive space. If download is failing what is it you are downloading exactly?
If flash is the issue go back to post 2 and run the uninstall again.

local disk
NTFS
USED 67.4 GB
FREE 155.65 GB

CAPACITY 223 GB

now it is not finishing the download
If i go on the govt website to download forms that have to be filed quarterly or try to download a tutorial on websites that have previously worked it appears to be doing everything but gets to the little blue strip/ribbon thing to show progress it does not complete and i cannot find anyplace that it has saved it. I guess my next option might be to click on save instead of opening it ?????????/

Yes I would save it to your desktop maybe even create a folder on your desktop calling it papers or something and then save it to that.
Once you are done with it then you could delete it. This way you have the physical file. We may be dealing with some type of association issue.
