Hi, I got a new laptop with windows 8 installed on it. As it is new it obviously doesn't have of the flash player and programs and things that I want. The problem is any time I download adobe flash player for example, I click on it and it asks to make changes to the computer as per usual, but when I click yes it makes no change and I cant run it.. this means nothing will download and I cant play games online.... any suggestions??

Are you running the Metro version of IE10 or the desktop version of IE10, this will make a big difference to how adobe flash works.

Have a look here http://www.eightforums.com/browsers-mail/2871-latest-version-adobe-flash-player.html be worth reading through the posts on that thread.

Also have a look here http://www.pcpro.co.uk/news/374821/ie10-metro-will-have-flash-but-only-for-approved-sites
