i just went to macromedia's site to get the latest flash player. their new site is mostly flash so i just clicked on the image "click here to get the plugin" and it was a broken link. i had to navigate through products->flash->flash reader->download to get it :P

way to go mm ;)

i hate when everything has to be backed up and reinstalled.....it is, just as you said, a time consuming process (that i think shouldn't be necessary)...
