Adobe Flash Player allows you to play and navigate interactive content on the Web. Flash Player requires administrative rights for installation and updates. If the computer you want to update is your work computer, you most likely do not have administrator rights to update the existing version of Flash Player. Note that Internet Explorer will not allow you to install Adobe updates without administrator credentials. You will need Mozilla Firefox Web browser to perform this task.
