    Uninstall, clear down all temp & cache files (e.g. using CCleaner) then search your hard drive for all instances of "fl*.ocx". Delete any flash files found. Then go to your Windows\system32\Macromed directory and delete it.

    If you have Java installed, it may also be worth going to the Java control panel (in Control Panel, 32 bit section) and clearing any Java cache if CCleaner hasn't done so.

    Reinstall Flash and try again.

    I had the same problem, it ended up doing my head in. Try deleting Google chrome of fire fox and adobe. Run CCleaner to clean it all up and then reinstall it all again.

    Edit: Ninja'd:duh:
