Are you installing Flash from Adobe.com?  

If you are using the Adobe site (not some other third party site) and it won't install, go to the Adobe support site and look up "uninstall Flash". Uninstall Flash from your computer, restart and install it again.

Be sure to use (at least right now), Internet Explorer 32-bit and Flash 32-bit. Do not mix 32-bit and 64-bit at all.  .... Thinkpads_User
