I cant get Macromedia Flash player to download. I tried allowing Pop-ups for the page and changing my security settings but still cant get it. Does anyone know a trick that I'm missing here?
Thank you Tim

Hi dirtyheathens,
Are you getting an error ??
If so what is it ??
Are you by any chance running Spyware Blaster??
If you are :
Open Spyware Blaster
Tools
Click on Flash killer
Untick the "Disable and block Macromedia Flash in Internet Explorer"

downloading from where?

Try this:

Within IE, go to TOOLS > INTERNET OPTIONS, then click on SETTINGS under TEMP. INTERNET FILES. Click VIEW OBJECTS. If shockwave flash object is there, delete it

Now go here:

http://www.macromedi...mcom/flash.html

what happens?

Ive been downloading form the Macromedia web page.

I deleted shockwave and went to the site you posted. I got the Macromedia page without the download flash player option.

That page had the download option. I clicked on it, it said done at the bottom of the page and nothing else happened. I'm not getting any warnings or anything saying that its downloading at all.

I wonder if you accidentally chose DO NOT TRUST CONTENT FROM THIS PUBLISHER at one time....

go here and download the redistributable

http://www.msfn.org/...?shownews=14360

Install that and see if it works

Ok. That downloaded and I ran the install. But it doesnt seem to be working. I went to a site that requires the flash player (joerocket.com) and still couldnt view the page. Maybe I have something set up wrong somewhere.
Thanks Tim
