After trying to patch and failing, I have tried all the procedures suggested in the other Secunia forum threads I found--closing all browsers and saving the uninstaller and the new installer to my desktop. I have successfully removed the old files from C:\Windows\system 32\Macromeda\Flash but cannot install the new version. My flash install log shows all the failed attempts. I have also rescanned, and the Adobe flashplayer warnings have disappeared, but not the Macromedia, though there is no longer a program file there.

The problem that occurs with reinstallation is that last stage of the Adobe Installer, the small window that wants me to agree to the terms if use, appears with only the QUIT button active; nothing makes the INSTALL button respond. I even turned off my antivus software as the Adobe site suggested. This is happening on both my PC (Windows XP Professional) and my laptop (Windows 7).

What next?

Have you checked the box to the left of
I have read and agree to the terms of the license agreement?
This is necessary to activate the Install button.

Try again. It is waiting for U to agree to the Licence. Hover your mouse around & U will see it. Now Install wiil show.

It is "blackened out" on the left side - just hover around.

Oh, wow! As someone who works in publications, I have a thing about the legibility of dark gray and black backgrounds--and this proves my prejudice! It worked like a charm, of course.

Why couldn't Adobe at least make the box white? But let's hope my thread helps other visually challenged types and makes everyone else laugh. (My husband couldn't see the box either.)

Many, many thanks!

We are talking Adobe. Chocolate fireguard springs to mind!

If all your problems are now resolved could U please lock (Accept) the thread. This will prevent us both from receiving update emails from "tag on" posts.
