You say it's a 64bit OS.

Which IE are you running up 32 or 64 bit?

Flash isn't compatible with IE9, I had this issue this morning and had to revert back to IE8
If you choose to do that go to programs and features > view installed updates >  uninstall the update to IE 9 and it will automatically revert back to IE 8

Uh, I hate to disagree but flash is compatible with Ie9.  I've been running it on my PC for quite a while and I have 36 terminal servers running this config.
I agree with Alan White: Flash works well with IE9.When you install it at adobe ewb page and you see the correct installation message with the flash movie runing is a symptom it works. But as AdrienneSperber said, you can try to view that web page with IE8. If it works it is probably not an issue with IE and flash but IE9 itself, some web pages are not compatible with that version of IE. You can try with Firefox with the add on IE tab too.
Following from ganix's comment, if you visit the following page, it will show you what version you have installed:  http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
cjoego--Uninstall whatever version of Flash you now have using the Adobe Flash Uninstaller
Then try to install latest version.
