    Have you tried a malware scan recently?
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    The direct download links for the latest Flash versions and the Flash uninstaller are listed on Corrine's Security Garden blog.

    If you are on dial up, you should be using a download assistant that can resume a broken download.

    Don't suppose you have a local library or computer club where you could download it ?

    If using a different computer at either venue, you could save it to USB Flash or DVD.

    While I don't know any of these programs, you could try whatever takes your fancy. http://www.afterdawn.com/software/ne...ad_assistants/

    Scrolling down the page gives you the size of others you can choose from.

    Thank you for all your help & suggestions.......I'm still trying.

    I've learned a lot even if I'm not successful with the download!

    Does this mean you have also been unable to download Windows Updates ?
