I have downloaded Flash Player several times and it shows up in Add/Remove Programs but I continue to get an error message that I need to install Flash Player to access some content of certain web sites. Please advise.

Thank you!

Is this in Internet Explorer or Firefox? if it is Internet Explorer, it usually tends to be about the ActiveX file which installs the Flash Player. If it is Firefox, you need to download the Flash player and install it.

Then re download flash player and install it as administrator, i didnt have to turn user account control off but i have read that this helps befotre you install.

I have installed the active x components aswell and all running soundly now.

It turns out that IE 8 was the problem. I uninstalled it and went back to IE 7 and the problem has gone away.
