    At any rate, here is the Flash info page if you are having trouble with the install: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowled...fm?id=tn_19166
    This is where Yahoo toolbar comes into play.



    This window comes up when you click on "Flash Player Download Center" on the link you provided.

    There shouldn't be any firewall or antivirus issues at this time.

    What version of vBulletin are they using?
    I don’t think we should have to up date. If this site is now
    more about the ads, than the people who make the site
    what it is……….well I say there are other good choices now.

    I brought this up a couple weeks ago too.

    Okay, now I see what you mean by the Yahoo toolbar. I don't see why that would have any effect.

    One other thing I can think of is to check your Internet Security level setting. To do that, go here:
    Start/Settings/Control Panel/Internet Options
    Click on the Security Tab. This may look a little different depending on exactly which version of Windows you are running. On XP Pro, I have two buttons--Custom Settings and Default Settings. When I click on the Default button, it shows me a slider that lets me set the security at Low, Medium, High . . . If you have it set higher than Medium, this could be preventing the download. If so, move it down to Medium, click Apply then click OK. Then try the download again.

    Then, quit clicking on the site if it's just so damn bad. Sheesh.
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    XP Pro... was on custom. Changed it to Med.

    Got the download after 3 tries... but, now have this problem when I go to install it.

    Did you try just clicking on that Install button? If so, what happened?

    I just downloaded the current version on my husband's system (the XP Pro computer) using IE. It took a couple of tries, but finally got it. Anyway, at least I can see where the files should be installed. So if it hasn't worked for you yet, we can check your My Computer directory and create the proper folder if it doesn't already exist.

    It brought up a bar and installed them (I guess) then nothing happened after that... the screen above and the install bar just disappears.

    I know this didn't do anything as your link still says I have 7.0.19.0 installed and IE has crashed probably 10 times since then.

    Okay, try this. In your IE browser window, click on Tools then choose Internet Options. Select the Security tab and then Internet, and make sure that you have these options selected:

    Active X controls and plug-ins
    Automatic prompting for ActiveX controls: Enable

    Download signed ActiveX controls: Enable

    Run ActiveX controls and Plug-ins: Enable

    Downloads
    Atomatic prompting for file downloads: Enable

    File download: Enable

    This is how I finally got it to download/install using IE.

    yocona: Thanks for the links and advice. I was able to upgrade my Firefox Flash Player and it no longer crashes.

    There was also a security issue with my old version according to them.
