I see "Error: Object Expected"

This is pretty much the meaning in every page. Also,  i noticed my adobe flash player is having issues. I am guessing this is what is causing this problem.
but i am not able to download the adobe flash player either from IE 7 or from Mozilla Firefox. when I click on the "agree and Install Now" button, I get an error on the page, and see this "error: 'adobe' is undefined

What OS?

Commented:
I suggest that you download and install Internet Explorer 8 (from www.microsoft.com/ie8), as that will probably solve your issue.
If it doesn't help, then open Internet Explorer and go to the menu "Tools" => "Internet Options" => "Advanced" Tab and click on "Reset" button at the bottom (under "Reset Internet Explorer Settings"). That should fix the issue.

Another thing you can do is fully uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plugin. See here for instructions:
