Hi there, @nomoless. There are several issues you have to address first before you can download Adobe flash player. First off, how fast is your internet connection? If your connection isn't that fast, expect a disconnection anytime you try downloading through your browser. How can you solve this problem? Get a download manager to help you out; I use Orbit Downloader as my download manager, although you can also consider flashget (You can search for these programs from google.com). Secondly, even after downloading and installing the Adobe flash payer plugin, your connection might not allow you to watch videos from youtube. The solution to this is to download the video to your hard disk, so that you can view it anytime you want. There are several programs you can use to do this:
[list]
[li]Orbit downloader - use the Grab++ module under the Tools menu. Ensure you start Grab++ before playing your video, when the video starts Grab++ will offer to download the video through orbit downloader. One more thing, Grab++ works best with firefox and internet explorer browsers.[/li]
[li]Keepvid.com - go to keepvid.com and enter the address of the youtube video you want to watch in the space provided. Keepvid will fetch the video for you and present you with several files you can download for offline viewing. Note that you have to have Java installed on your system to use keepvid.[/li]
[/list]
In case you need further clarification, I have written an article on how to download youtube videos @ http://kenhubs.hubpages.com/hub/How-to-download-Youtube-videos-and-other-streaming-media. All the best.

Thanks to everyone who gave a suggestion. I installed IDM and tried to download the flash player with no success, however I was able to get an antivirus for my system as I have equally been trying to get one without success until I got the IDM. I will keep on trying for the flash till I get it. Another thing is that the system is now very slow. Once again thanks to everyone, more suggestions will be welcomed.

several things may be responsible:

1. Speed of your internet access.
2. Your antivirus may be blocking your ability to download.
3. Your Laptop may require maintenance.

To resolve this:
1. get a faster internet.
2. Check through your antivirus settings and white-list youtube.
3. Well for this, except you are a Techie you may not want to do this by yourself. Maybe you should check out this web page,
