    I came accross this interesting article regarding problems when running
    Adobe's Flash in both Vistas (x86 and x64).
    http://www.ocmodshop.com/ocmodshop.aspx?a=1201
    Essentially what the author claims is that, if you have recurring prompts
    for installing Flash even if you did a zillion times, you might want to try
    this:
    "For Vista (32 bit):

    Open File Explorer
    Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash
    Right-click on FlashUtil9f (or whatever version you downloaded)
    Select Run as Administrator
    If you haven't turned UAC off, then you'll get a prompt. Let the wizard
    install
    Enjoy Flash
    For Vista x64:

    Open File Explorer
    Navigate to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash
    Right-click on FlashUtil9f (or whatever version you downloaded)
    Select Run as Administrator
    If you haven't turned UAC off, then you'll get a prompt. Let the wizard
    install
    Enjoy Flash"
