Hello,

You need to use the Adobe Uninstaller to uninstall and then reinstall again.

Then download from the link below to install flash player 10.

Hello,
Thank you for using justanswer.com
I am here to assist you regarding your problem

You can try reinstalling the Adobe Reader. This should fix any weird settings with the download manager and allow you to properly uninstall.

If that doesn’t work, you can manually remove it, see the following page: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/823/13d8231.html

You may want to run the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility if you manually remove it: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
