    Hi,

    The corruption message might have occured because the media in which the flash installer was stored the files are damagad due to reasons.

    Another possibility is that the media itself is corrupt and the read / write head can`t recover data out of it.

    Run a scandisk on the HDD, download a fresh copy of Flash Player from internet specifically from the authorised site.

    Uninstall the previous Flash Player installed in the system, using control panel > add/remove programs, reinstall downloaded flash player.

    Thanks.

    Hello friend...

    first you delete the all the temporary file in the computer then remove the all flash file in the c drive..

    when you uninstall the flash player then some file can't be remove so you need to remove the all the file of flash from the computer..



    Then you need to install the latest version of the flash player then it is install efficiently..

    Click this link to install the flash player

    All the Best!!

    Hey friend
    If you are facing this problem means previous installation registry is not removed or your system files gets corrupted.

    So first try to remove unwanted registry with the help of registry cleaner and
    again try to install the flash player.


    If still facing the same problem then by using your installation disk repair your windows .
    Then try to install the adobe flash player. Now no error will occur....
