How to Install the Adobe Flash Update
Lots of emails this week about the new Adobe Flash update and how to install it. They seem to update this plugin every 4 to 6 weeks, and it's essential to many online services like YouTube videos and other sites.
First, go directly to the Adobe.com website and navigate to Downloads.
Select the Adobe Flash update and click to download.
Now this is where most people get tripped up. After downloading the software, you still have to go through several steps to complete the install. Locate the update .dmg (disk mounted image) file in your downloads folder. Double click to launch the installer.
Choose the volume where you wish to install the software (your Macintosh HD) and follow the prompts the installer presents. It will require that you close any browsers, Safari, Firefox etc., before continuing.
You also have to agree to the software terms and conditions.
Once you've completed all of these steps, you should be good to go.
