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.

something has caused you to troubleshoot a problem with flash and downloading flash is one course you have decided to take?
Did you know there is also shockwave player?
Please post back those details

Install a different version of Adobe Flash Player

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.
