You need to clear your cache and restart the browser.  What usually causes this is one bad download.  THen IE thinks it has the file already completed and does not download it again.

If you need to, go to "c:\documents and settings\%username%\local settings\Temporary Internet Files" and delete everything in there.  

I hope that is the correct path.  I don't have a Windows XP installation readily available.

You seem to have some clue as to what you are doing, but I'll pose the question anyway... Have you tried completely removing flash, then reboot, then reinsatall?  This has solved many flash issues for me.

Unfortunately I cannot install IE 8, we are standardized on IE 7 still.
I cannot uninstall it, it will not even install, errors out both installing from adobe website & installing manually.  i have restarted the system numverous times already.
Here is what i tried today -
 *Logged in as Local Administrator and uninstalled Adobe Download Manager for the upteenth time, restarted System.
*Logged on as another account that is also in Administrators Group (since prior attempts logged on as Local Administrator had failed).  Downloaded & ran the install file suggested by pnsaravann, install_flash_player_10_active_x.exe, still got error " The ActiveX control for Flash Player could not be registered. "

Ran "uninstall_flash_player.exe", even though it has never successfully installed, then restarted PC.
Ran "install_flash_player_10_active_x.exe" manual install, still got error "The ActiveX contorl for Flash Player could not be registered".

finally stumbled on the fix, it involved a partial fix we used in the past for Stop c000021 fatal system error on some systems after Lawson Upgrade:
downloaded subinacl.msi from the Microsoft Download Center to fix permission issues that prevent the Flash Player installation
ran reset.cmd
restarted system
ran regedit
deleted entries for ...\\Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayer
ran "install_flash_player_ax.exe"
flash player successfully installed

it may have been just deleting registry keys for "...\\Software\Macromedia\FlashPlayer" corrected issues.
reset.cmd
