I am trying to instal adobe flash player in Windows vista, IE 8.

As soon as download and installation starts, everything seems fine. The progress bar reaches 100% and stays there for some time. Then, I get an integrity check error. Any idea what I am doing wrong ? Please refer to these pics:

I tried saving the file to my desktop instead of downloading but when i click the icon it says NSIS error. If I try to download the flashplayer from a different site, a pop up comes up saying "windows has found a problem with this file."

I've already tried downloading google chrome but an error comes up when i try.
I've tried downloading firefox but the browser aborts and exits when I try.
I've already turned off my windows firewall.

Someone please help. I've had this problem for almost a week and had been on the computer for hours looking at different forums. None seemed to match my problem or be of any help.

The official fix did not work. It keep saying there is insufficient privalages and i do not know how to fix it.
Try downloading it from another source.
I got exactly the same error when trying to install it from Adobe via Youtube.

After trying a few times I gave up. As part of my attempts, I followed the instructions for uninstalling flash player. Later I went to a news website with embedded videos. It told me that I needed to update and when I used its link it worked.

Hope it helps.

So much for Windows 7 is better than Vista etc. Brand new installation of Windows 7 and I am getting this error when I try to install one of the most trusted addin that exists. Adobe Flash Player!!
Here is the answer. Turn off every security feature that you can find and it will work.
um I tried going to tools and resetting the advanced setting, what do I click on after that to get past the integrity check. I got windows 7. Ive tryed everything, uninstalling, restalling, turning off all security, Im completly computer illiterate..please help. trying to download adobe flash player
oh and what do you mean by proxy settings
1) Download Flash Player Uninstaller and uninstall flash player
2) Download and install Flash Player 9 from Adobe Archives page
3) Then install Flash Player 10
