First Solution:

Hit "Start" button, type  "run regsvr32 /u GCCollection.dll" (without  
 
the quotes), then hit "enter" button.  
 
You should see a small dialog box confirming that it suceeded.

Second Solution:

go to the registry by going to start>run  and type regedit

and explore the following directory
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash
ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash.1
(There is NO ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash.2)
ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash.3
ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash.4
ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash.5
ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash.6
ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash.7
ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash.8

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.spl
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.swf
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mfp
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.sol
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.sor

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000}
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000}\InprocServer32

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MIME\Database\Content Type\application/x-shockwave-flash
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MIME\Database\Content Type\application/futuresplash

after doing the above process restart the computer.
Run the installer from Player Download Center.
