It says it needs my permission to make changes. I have completly uninstalled and reinstalled latest ver from website. Same results?????? I use Firefox to get 64 bit in windows as flashplayer does not work on IE at 64 bit.

Actually you have 32-bit Firefox on 64-bit Windows. There are no official Win64 builds of Firefox.

I know. Maybe I wasn't clear. In order to run the computer at 64 bit, IE has to be set for 64bit. If IE is at 64bit, flashplayer won't always work. Firefox will run at 32 bit on a 64 bit platform, so that is what I do waiting on flashplayer to get to 64bit.
