Unable to Install Adobe Flash Player 10

I have made several attempts to install and it says I have successfully installed but it is not on my program acces file.  However it is shown on the Add/Remove Files under Control Panel but shows no size as other files have.  I have adjusted the ActiveX security as instucted by Adobe.
Can you help please as it has proved very frustrating.

For which browser are you installing Firefox or Internet explorer

Firefox - Please update your Firefox browser version & then visit :http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Internet explorer - http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ (Browser in IE )

If you are running an x64 system then there is no Adobe Flash Player for it.
Not yet....

as others have said, you need one version for IE and another for all non-IE browsers.

i find its always better to download the full files and install them.

I usually get them from Filehippo - http://www.filehippo.com/download_flashplayer/

this version does work under Win 7 64bit also (under the 32bit app section), until such time as they release proper 64bit versions.

You can still use a 32bit IE on 64bit though......

I am disappointed in the responses!  I tried the solution given by ashraf882 but it still didn't install.
kaskhedikar tushar told me to do what I said I had aleady done without success.
John6767 and iainNIX solutions are unintelligable to me.  I 'm not a computer geek, I just want to know what to do to install this program.  I can't be that big a problem!

If you expect people to help you then you should give them some feedback too.
You have not answered a crucial question if your operating system is x32 or x64 bit.

Adobe Flash Player 10 is not a  program access file.
It is an ActiveX component that gets incorporated into your browser
so when you run into a site that uses Flash,your browser is capable
of playing its contents.

To test what version you have :
http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html

To test your Flash Player:
http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/

As soon as you test your player you will probably get (pic).
So just install it...

If you go to the site :

http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/

you should be able to see the animation (with sound playing).

To access your Flashplayer settings you right click on the animation and
there you have it (see the pic)

So if the above work,then you have nothing to worry about.
Flash players are set to automatic update so if new version arrives you will be notified.

However if you can not install Flash and get a message like the one shown in the picture (pic)
then you are either running x64 version of Windows or you do not have java Script enabled.
These settings are set In Internet explorer so if your browser is giving you hard time then
you should reset it to default settings and start anew.

if you have a Java issue then download and install the latest from here :

So check all this....and if it still does not work give us some feedback....

The clue that I received was that Flash Player is not a program acces file but is somehow built in to the browser.  I see now that the program was installed from the start but I couldn't find it!

Thanks
