Vista Programs and Features should show Adobe Flash installed. Remove Flash (uninstall it), then restart the computer and try again to install Flash.

You may have a virus, so do run your virus scanner and do a complete scan.

Install a different version of Adobe Flash Player

one of the videos I'm trying to play requires Adobe Flash
And you get an error message that flash player is not installed? when trying to play it?
Are you in youtube?
Where is the file?
Try the link above I posted that should give you some clues what is going on.
Let me know

If you are trying to play a Flash video (.flv) independently of your web browser the FlashPlayer download from Adobe won't do this.  You'll need the .flv playback codec for your mediaplayer.

Installing K-lite and using the MediaPlayer Classic player included in that will allow independent viewing of the media.
