Have to reinstall Flash Player over and over and over.

I'm having a problem with Adobe Flash Player for IE7.  (9.0.124.0)   I keep having to reinstall it over and over again.  One day it works fine, then all of a sudden I'll be surfing and notice that my websites aren't recognizing it is installed, even though it shows up in my Add/Remove Programs list.  Then I have to uninstall it, then reinstall it again.  I know how to do that...no problems there.  It works fine, then sometime later (maybe the next day, or maybe several days later), it will go bad again.  Then I have to uninstall/reinstall again.  This keeps happening over and over again.  I can't figure out where it is coming from.

By the way, please don't give me answers like..."don't use IE7...try FireFox".  That is just avoiding the problem.  I want to find the root cause of the problem and FIX it.

Try installing the new version of the player. It is up to 10.0.12.36.

http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash

This may fix your issues.

If this doesn't work then unintall flash player and reboot.
Run a registry cleaner such as Regcure and reboot. (www.regcure.com)
Re-install Flash player.

Wow, good timing for my question, huh?  Did that version just get released this week?  I'll give it a try.
It might be a little while before I can respond with my confirmation of a fix, because it works fine at first, and then the problem comes back intermittently.

It was very good timing. It was released October 15, so the day you asked the question.

So far, so good, after almost 2 weeks on the new version of Flash.  I'd like to wait a little longer to confirm the issue doesn't recur...then I will award points.

Still no issues after almost a month.  I'm guessing this new version took care of the issue.
