I recently purchased computer with Vista Home Premium. Flash player was working ok initially in IE7.
Now it does not work any more. I went through knowledge base and tried to follow some of the suggestion in the forum by right clicking on flashutil.exe and selecting run as administrator etc.
Still I am not able have the problem fixed. I tried downloading Firefox. Still the same issues.
My flash player version is 9.

On Vista? You must use the latest Flash Player (9,0,28 or higher)

Uninstalling and Installing flash player worked finally. But for some odd reason my connection to www.adobe.com takes quite a long time on my vista browsers. This does not happend to any other web sites.

Adobe's website has flash stuff all over it. I wonder if that may have slowed it down. Is it slow now that you have reinstalled it?
