Windows update won't help you with the Adobe flash player. Windows is Microsoft 
and Adobe is Adobe. Here's a message I sent someone about Adobe.
Before you install the flash player, you need to uninstall 
the previous version. The tool to do that is here

The flash player is here

Claudia, next time you try the Windows update, hit alt N after you hear that 
ding. It may give you some options.

Subject: Windows Update Problems!


I am needing some help, with the Windows Update screen.  I'm trying to 
install the latest version of Adobe Flash Player, on a Windows XP laptop 
that recently needed to be restored, due to having other issues.
I cannot install any of the latest Windows Update products; I get that beep 
on the screen, like it's trying to access a download that it shouldn't, but 
I can't figure out how to enable it.
I have disabled the popup blocker settings and tried to adjust other 
security settings, but I cannot download anything.
Therefore, I cannot access any sites that I use with my son, that require 
the Adobe Flash player.  I thought by doing a Windows Update, I could then 
install all the latest updates, but I can't even get past the checking for 
updates status.
Any help would be appreciated!
