Major issues installing flash player. I have used the uninstall from Adobe, then opened IE and changed the settings to allow active x signed and unsigned downloads then went to adobe website to install flash player, it downloads the first component, i run the program, it then proceeds to download the files it needs and finishes tha part 100%.
Then it starts to install, gets to 50% and then states that there was an error (doesnt say which error happened)

Can anyone shed any light on this, this has been as issue for jusst over a year and I have tried everything, I have to get the users to use someone elses PC as theere are 3 that do not update or run flash any more.
