Flash player install hanging question

trying to get flash player installed on new PC. Download works fine but install hangs and can only be closed through task manager. Have followed the help suggestions about closing explorer and other applications, downloading file and running from there, .....still does not work. Any other suggestions?


I just tried the link for FP for ActiveX (Internet Explorer) in Pat Willener's above reply, and the link did not work.  Received this reply from Internet Explorer:
Oops! This link appears to be broken.
Did you mean: macromedia.com
I tried copying the url from the Properties of the link, and pasting it into a fresh browser window.  Same result.
Is there an updated link available, that works?
