Whenever you attempt to download Adobe Flash Player or Adobe Reader, an application called the Adobe Download Manager is installed on your system. The Adobe Download Manager is used to monitor the process as Flash Player or Reader is transferred to the computer. After the download completes, Adobe Download Manager uninstalls itself. If, however, you closed Adobe Download Manager in the middle of this process, it needs to be uninstalled manually. After this, you're able to resume downloading your desired program.
Click on the "Start" button. Click on "Control Panel."
Click "Uninstall a Program" in the Control Panel. Click on "Adobe Download Manager."
Click "Uninstall." Adobe Download Manager is removed from the computer.
Try to download Adobe Flash Player or Reader again from Adobe.com.
Adobe Download Manager is not associated with the similarly named Adobe Update Manager. Update Manager is responsible for delivering the latest updates to your Adobe products.
