Full Answer

Adobe Flash Player cannot install if a Web browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Google Chrome is open, so be sure to close all browsers before trying to install Flash.

Check in the computer's downloads folder for the installer program. If it is not found or cannot be opened, try downloading the program again.

The computer may also have permission blocks or security programs that prevent the installation of new programs. These must be disabled prior to installing Flash Player.

    Why is my computer running so loud?

    A:

    Even though any number of reasons can cause a PC to run loudly, the problem usually lies with the heat from the central processing unit, or CPU, which makes the fan work harder and thus begin to operate loudly. Furthermore, dirt sometimes builds up in the CPU fan, causing the fan to overheat. In addition, a PC can also sometimes turn itself off because it overheats.
