I would suggest you try the following to resolve your Flash Player issue.
As Don suggested already, download the manual Flash Player Uninstaller from
this link and save the file to your desktop:
Also download the Manual installer file for the Flash Player located at the
following link and save it also to your desktop:
After you've downloaded both files above, disconnect from the Internet and
temporarily disable any Real-Time Secruity Application(s) running in the
background on your machine.
Since you are using Windows Vista, you will want to run both of the files
you downloaded as Administrator, so rightclick on the Uninstaller file first
and run it as Administrator from the Desktop to completely remove the Flash
Player from your System.
Next, do the same with the Flash Player Installer file you download and
saved to your Desktop. It will install the latest public release of the
Flash Player to your System.
If the manual Uninstall||Reinstall of the Flash Player does not resolve your
issue then try seeking help with the installation from Adobe:
Adobe offers free email support(via a Web Case) for Flash Player
1. Go to the Adobe Support Portal:
2. When you get to the Support Portal page, click on the Button that says:
"Create an Account"
3. Once you've created an account with Adobe and you're logged in to that
Account, at the bottom of the page use the selector to select:
4. In the 'Choose product' category put a tick in the radial next to:
5. From the selection menu select:
"Adobe Flash Player"
6. Now click the button that says "Continue"
You will taken to a page entitled:
"Create a support case"
7. Here you can type your support request and send it to Adobe
