You say that you've "done all the manually uninstalling flashplayer moves",
does that mean that you've downloaded the Flash Player Uninstaller utility
to your desktop and run the utility?
If not, then download the utility from here and run it:
Then download the Manual Flash Player installer file to your desktop and run
If the problem persists, navigate to the following folder:
Right click on the following file in that folder and Run as Administrator
Allow this utility to update the Flash Player.
