I'm trying to download Adobe Flash Player and when it installs it gives an error "download timeout 12%" . They say to temporarily disable my anti virus software. Is this true? Can anybody help me?
No it shouldn't make any difference as Flash just updated here OK, as it always does. It must be Adobe's servers acting up I would imagine.
You can disable VirusScan at any time though to see if it helps.
Double-click the taskbar icon to open SecurityCenter
Click Virus and Spyware Protection to expand
Click Real-Time Scanning
Click Turn Off and tell it for how long.
But....as I said, you shouldn't have to do that.
