    Cannot install Adobe Reader or Flash

    For some reason adobe reader and flash are refusing to install. I've taken a new machine and installed win 7 on it this morning, now I want to install both adobe reader and flash but adobe reader never gets past 33% before it reports metafile download failed and flash quits at 0% (see attachment).

    There's nothing on Google about this and I'm stumped

    If this is in a school, you should have filled out the overly long form for Adobe player licenses which then grant you access to the MSI downloads. These generally install fine for me

    Normally the online version works first time but I have requested the licence and will use that if I can't get the online version to work, but I hate wasting time on silly problems!
