Windows 7: Adobe Flash Player download

Adobe Flash Player download

Have two machines - Toshiba Sat L550 laptop running 7 Pro and have the Flash Player (10) on it. Now have a new desky running Home Premium (both 64bit OS's) while the laptop had the Flash P on it I cannot for the life of me download Flash onto the desktop from the net.
I have tried copying the Flash to a usb stick and pasting / transferring the app to the desktop - as I did the Reader (it wouldn't download either) but it just sits there doing nothing.
Download is telling me that Flash in 64bit is not available (Australia) so am left with no Youtube or anything that requires Flash for video / graphics.
So any advice would be more than appreciated with the proviso that I don't like third party downloads - too many problems experienced already.

Uninstall the Flash player on your desktop computer. Start> Control Panel> Programs and Features

Program will say Adobe Flash Player. Uninstall. Then go to web page. It will prompt you to download or direct you to download page you need. Watch for add on software. Read and uncheck in the right spots.
Adobe - Flash Player.


Test your Shockwave. Will install new version if needed. If you go here uninstall is usually handled by Adobe installers.
Adobe - Test Adobe Shockwave Player

Future reference point.
Chrome browser has its own Flash in the download.

FF, Opera and IE-8 use regular Flash as your laptop does now.
If you add new browsers to your desktop you will know what you need.

Good to add to favorites/bookmark.

Checks for Shockwave update/tester. Under the Shockwave animation is link to Flashplayer tester/updater.
Two in one.

A big thanks

Thanks Mike I haven't tried Chrome yet but might as long as it isn't crammed with all those fancy doo dads - hate clutter.

I might also just have a look at the Shockwave feature too - as I am not aware of what it actually does but a Google will take of that eh?

Cheers!
