When ever you see that message box, look at the program listed. If you know the program is okay, press the Run button. This is a Windows alert. And a lot of times, it does its job tooooo well.

i know its a holiday but, i'm sorry i have to BUMP this. shows are starting to come back from their mid season finales.

should i try installing adobe again.

more options

Yes, just follow the normal instructions. As long as you get a program from someone that it trusted, there should be no install problem.

Troubleshoot Shockwave Player installation | Windows Troubleshoot Shockwave Player installation | Mac OS

If you have problems with current Shockwave Flash plugin versions then check this:

  • see if there are updates for your graphics drive drivers

  • disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)

  • disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin See also:

Lets do this from the beginning;

Download the full installer (if you already have it, continue on) Open the folder where the installer is located. Close ALL OTHER PROGRAMS  ! Now run the installer.

ok Fred i think we're making progress. i'm getting further than i've ever been.

i googled why there was no run button in the downloads, i guess they had got rid of it.

i installed an extension to get it back. everything is looking good til i got a gray box that i can't close out of.

My ears are burning, is someone talking about me?

That box is the installer, and I said to Close All Other Programs.

ok i think i know what the problem is now. i have a Windows 64-bit. (first time seeing this box)

there is an option- Need Flash Player for a different computer?

i can't seem to get past after i click yes for the adobe changes. the installer box doesn't even show anymore.

everything is closed out.

i just want this to be over, its been 2 weeks.

i am so sorry Fred & everyone else.

When you access those type of install pages, it reads the current information from the computer and the browser. Then it displays the program(s) for that combination. If you were to access the same site using a different setup, that setup would be displayed.

Follow the prompts on screen, and the instructions I gave you.
