I want to try to install the latest version of Adobe Flash Player on Internet Explorer, but I cannot. For some reason it only gets to where it shows the "loading screen" for the flash and it never goes past that...

My Specs:

  • Windows Vista Home Premium
  • Internet Explorer Version 7.0.6001.18000
  • Mozilla Firefox is set as my default web browser

Please Help me...

Try this:

Toubleshoot Adobe Flash Player installation for Windows Windows Vista installation failure

On some Windows Vista systems Flash Player may be installed, but will not display Flash content. In some cases updating to the latest Flash Player using the included utility can correct the User Account Control settings that cause this problem. To run the utility, find your installed Flash folder:

  • Right-click C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil9d.exe The letter changes with each Flash version, so may be "FlashUtilb.exe" or "FlashUtile.exe"
  • Select "Run as Administrator"
  • Follow the steps to complete the Flash Player installation
  • Restart your computer
